Donal Donnelly Profile


"Innovative and energetic" is how best to describe Donal Donnelly - one of the many contemporary musicians to emerge from the Leeds College of Music. Originally from Portrush , Co Antrim in Northern Ireland, Donal graduated from college in 1995 after serving in the Royal Navy as a Physical Training Instructor (PTI) with a Graduate Diploma in Jazz and Pop Music, studying saxophone with Phil Chapman and Al Woods.

Since then, Donal's career has gone from strength to strength, from entertaining at dances and weddings and playing in big bands, to providing back-up to major recording artists and touring in well known theatre productions.

Multi-instrumental, he plays flute, clarinet, piano and, of course, his main instrument saxophone - including soprano, alto, tenor and baritone.

His many credits include;

• Touring with the theatre production Rave On under the direction of producer John Redgrave, featuring Jeff Turton (2 number 1 UK hits with the Rockin' Berries) and Terry Webster (Jive Bunny, Who Do You Do, Rockin' Berries)
• Featured saxophonist on the UK touring show The Berries Connection (Terry Webster and Jeff Turton)

• As a sideman he has worked with;

The legendary Roy Wood (I Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday, Blackberry Way and too many others to mention),
John Shepard and Fred White from the Grammy-nominated band Acoustic Alchemy,
Tim Woodcock and Tim Daniels – song-writer and producer (Blue, Steps, Billy Piper),
James Russel, saxophonist, composer and producer (Jason Donovan),
Richard Blanchard, arranger and band leader (Peter Grant, Joe Longthorne, The Cat Pack),
The Rat Pack Trio (www.ratpack.biz)
… and many, many more!

Donal is currently working with The Cat Pack (www.thecatpack.co.uk), one of the UK’s leading Rhythm and Blues Orchestras, who have already supported Chuck Berry and Little Richard. Donal plays first tenor sax.

Donal is a busy music teacher, tutoring students privately and at the Leeds College of Music.
A list of all the ensembles taught can be found on donals website www.dondonnelly.co.uk

In 2005, Donal also featured in the BBC’s Honey, We’re Killing the Kids.

Donal is also busy running his own studio – Enfused Records – writing, arranging, producing and performing his first album Heartfelt, released in 2008, he also has duet books and many saxophone arrangements for sale from his website www.dondonnelly.co.uk
