I first met Donny when he was visiting Columbus ,Oh in 1991. We met  at  a Japanese restaurant  karaoke bar where we were both singing. He liked my version of Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife" and I was extrememly jealous of EVERTHING  he sang. We became a mutual admiration society. We saw each other for about a month and he gave me a cassette tape of an album of songs he had written and recorded in Las Vegas when he was there doing " Legends In Concert" as Nat King Cole. He is not only the premiere Nat King Cole impersonator but a gifted singer/songwriter hin is own right. Visit his website and buy his music...you won't be disappointed.~Rick Cassidy
