TMSG: Donny Brown

(WLNS) – Looking to make some plans this Valentine’s Day? Look, or listen no further.

There will be plenty of sweet sounds Saturday in Grand Ledge.

Donny Brown’s story begins in Saginaw, Michigan, where he was born and raised, in a house full of children and music.

“When we did dishes we sang. If you were the dryer, you sang the harmonies and guitar solos,” said Donny Brown.

Now he’s flying solo in the music business, after separating from the successful band the Verve Pipe, which he helped create back in the 90’s, around the time he attended MSU’s School of Music.

“For the life of me, I cannot believe we’ve ever died for these sins, we were merely freshman.”

But you’d never consider this seasoned musician a “freshman” playing drums, his vocal chords and now strumming deeper into his guitar.

Since his split from the Verve Pipe in late 2013, Brown’s played one only gig on his own.

This Saturday in Grand Ledge, will be his second. And he’ll have help from some local talent, who call themselves The Van Dell-Tones.

Reporter: “This Saturday is Valentine’s Day. Will that be a theme?”
Brown: “I’ve been known to write a love song or two. And we want to spread the love.”

“I’m going to play a few extra love songs in the show too.”

One of those songs called “The Night I Fell For You,” is from his new album.

And it’s a song 6 News’ Chivon Kloepfer has fallen for, since getting the opportunity to sing it with Brown.

Brown hopes you’ll fall in love with some to the music this weekend, as well.

The concert is Saturday, Feb. 14 at the Grand Ledge Performing Arts Center, which is inside the high school.

Tickets are $10.50 for adults and $5.50 for students.
