The Virgil Donati Band

Virgil Donati – Drums
Famously independent and very strictly self-disciplined, Virgil has not had the time for a life outside music. In an interview with Modern Drummer magazine, the issue which came out in mid-1999, when asked about marriage, Virgil said, 'I think you have to be very strong to stick to your goals in life... So far I've resisted the choice of marriage and the many distractions they can bring.'

Allan Holdsworth – Guitar
He has released twelve studio albums as a solo artist and played a variety of musical styles spanning a period of more than four decades, but is best known for his work in jazz fusion. Holdsworth is noted for his advanced, mathematical knowledge of the fretboard, by which he incorporates a vast array of complex chord progressions (often with challenging finger stretches) and an extensive use of fast solos; the latter comprising a myriad of scale forms derived from those such as the diminished, augmented, whole tone, chromatic and altered scales, among others, giving an unpredictable and "off" sound.

Anthony Crawford – Bass
He is best known for working with Justin Timberlake, Peabo Bryson, Howard Hewett, Shalamar, Kirk Whalum, Phil Perry, Glen Jones and Karen Briggs. Anthony also played bass for the National Democratic Convention for Bill Clinton in 2000. After being discovered by several notable producers, including Angelo Earl, Anthony Crawford was asked to play at the National Democratic Convention for Bill Clinton. The word began to spread and in 2002 he appeared in a Burger King commercial with basketball icon, Shaquille O'Neal. This eventually led to him playing with well-known pop vocalist, Justin Timberlake.

Austin Peralta – Keys
Peralta was a piano player devoted to music from a very young age, starting piano lessons at the age of six and eventually studying with Eleanor Lindboe, Sara Banta at Pepperdine University, the noted jazz pianist Alan Pasqua and saxophonist Buddy Collette. Peralta won the Shelly Manne New Talent Award given by the Los Angeles Jazz Society in 2003, presented to him by Quincy Jones, at the age of 13. At age 15, Peralta was a featured performer at the 2006 Tokyo Jazz Festival, appearing with his own trio,and performing live with major jazz and jazz fusion stars Chick Corea, Hank Jones, Sadao Watanabe, John Patitucci, Omar Hakim, and the young Japanese pianist Hiromi Uehara.
