Fans were introduced to Will Donato's musical and performing abilities with some of the best musicians in the west, including Grammy Award winner George Landress, Gregg Karukas, Blake Aaron, Tony Guerrero, Jeff Caruthers, Steve Reid ( The Rippingtons), Al Mckay (Earth,Wind, and Fire), Bruce Conte (Tower of Power!) and Steve Oliver. You can hear Will’s signature sound on Steve's phenominal chart topping 1 hit single “High Noon.” Will was one of the signature front men of Steve Reids - Bamboo Forest for four years! Outside the Contemporary Jazz genre, he has performed with Richard Marx and Gerald Levert and can be heard on the soundtracks of "Thelma and Louise," "The Untouchables" and "The Wedding Planner."
Live in concert, Will's charismatic performance sets pulses racing with his up-tempo, R&B infused jazz style that can switch from funk and groove to mellow ballads without missing a beat.
Will has over 200 performances scheduled this year throughout the country performing regularly at Jazz Festivals, Clubs, Corporate and Private Events, with various contingents including the Art of Sax. This project has enhanced his reputation as a fine showman as well as musician.
