We call it the Sunday Best… because there's no better place to be on a Sunday afternoon than with us at The ABGB.

Singer and guitarist Aaron McDonnell was born and raised in Oregon's rural Willamette Valley to a mill-working father and a God-fearing mother. He bought his first guitar, a knock-off Telecaster, when he was 15 years old and proceeded to learn everything from Garth Brooks to Nirvana, however it was the sound of the oldger generation that captured his imagination; George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Conway Twitty songs drifted from the radios and turntables of his grandmothers' kitchens and living rooms. This heritage is alive and well in McDonnell's earnest and straightforward songs, and strong, clear baritone.

Since quitting his corporate job of 13 years to pursue music full time in 2013, Aaron has released three solo EPs; «Follow» (2014), «Battle Bend» (2015), and «Get Gone» (2016). Each exhibits a progression musically and lyrically, but also show the influence of Aaron & Dani's relocation to Austin, TX. Texas has has undoubtedly touched the music and become a source of inspiration, while pushing the feel of the songs in a more dance-able and toe-tapping direction. After arriving in Texas it was apparent that the old Seattle sad-bastard music was not gonna fly in the dance halls!

With true purpose, Aaron's songs explore age-old themes of love, heartache, failure, and faith. They are classic in their influence and unpretentious in their delivery. At once familiar and fresh, Aaron McDonnell is both an authentic homage to the sounds of the past, and an exciting example of what is to come.

Hang out under the trees.
Drink some beer (that's all made here).
Hug your friends.
Have a sandwich… or a slice or two.
Swing your partners.

That's the Sunday Best.
