Donnie Lee is a Newton County Arkansas native who was born and raised in Hasty. Surrounded by a family of musicians from day one, he became interested in drumming at a very young age. After cutting his teeth playing “garage jams” with his friends from school, he borrowed a drum kit from a cousin and started learning. It wasn’t long after that when his dad saw that he had enough talent and commitment to the craft that they went in 50/50 on a set of drums of his own. Within months of acquiring his own set of drums, Donnie was playing fill in spots for local bands who needed a drummer for the night. He was so young at the time that he needed to be accompanied by his parents to even enter the clubs…. maybe 15-16 years old. He has been a part of the local and regional music scene for over 30 years being part of numerous bands during that time and playing with some of the finest musicians Northwest Arkansas has to offer. Known for his sharp wit and zany sense of humor, you can always expect the unexpected when Donnie is around.
