Johnny Wheels and The Swamp Donkeys

Johnny Wheels and The Swamp DonkeysJohnny Wheels and The Swamp Donkeys recently competed in the finals for the 2018 Journey to Memphis. Although they didn't win the competition, they  made their mark on the crowd at the Waterfront Blues Festival. Johnny describes their music as, "a rock n' blues soulful experience that makes you feel good all over: any place, any time."

This band includes: Johnny Wheels, harmonica and vocals; Brandon Logan, guitar, sax, and vocals; Michael C. Rabe, guitar and vocals; Taylor Frazier , bass; and Douglas Knoyle on drums. Michael, Doug and Brandon are true Oregonians, with Johnny transplanting from California, and Taylor coming from Texas.

The bands current line up has been together for about two years. "We often add or play with another person to keep things fresh for all involved and listening. You won’t hear a song exactly the same way twice – that’s what CD’s are for. We like to add some spice of musical exploration,” Johnny said.
