"IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS . . . ONE OF THE BEST YOUNG JAZZ SINGERS IN THE COUNTRY TODAY. SHE'S THE REAL MCCOY." - TONY BENNETT
Donna has been invited by none other than Tony Bennett to open several of his shows both in the U.S. and abroad
Donna Byrne is a jazz singer at the top of her game. With sultry good looks and a quick wit, Donna is not only a masterful singer, but also a true entertainer. She has performed with such renowned artists as: Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Herb Pomeroy, Dave McKenna, Dick Johnson, Frank Wess, Stanley Turrentine, Scott Hamilton, Bucky Pizzarelli, Ken Peplowski, Bill Cunliffe, Harry Allen, Gray Sargent, Carmen Cicero, Dave Frishberg, Eddie Higgins, James Williams and The Artie Shaw Orchestra. She has opened for such performers as Lou Rawls, Bob Newhart and the great Tony Bennett on his national tour (the “thrill of a lifetime” for Donna). Her unforgettable performances have entertained audiences from L.A. to London, wowing audiences at such venues as: Blue Note Jazz Club, Tavern on the Green, Blues Alley, Scullers, Regattabar, Jazz Bakery, The Rainbow Room, and London’s Pizza on the Park. She’s also toured Florida, performing with Herb Pomeroy, Dave McKenna and Ruby Braff. Her audiences have been filled with such luminaries as the legendary Margaret Whiting, who “thoroughly enjoyed Donna's performance,” and Tony Bennett, who dropped in for his birthday just to hear Donna sing his classic “It Was Me.” Mr. Bennett became an ardent fan, once flying home early from the Super Bowl just to catch Donna perform.
