While still in High School, Donovan joined the now famous Soul Syndicate Band that included a who's-who of reggae: Fully Full wood on bass (later to join Peter Tosh's Word Sound & Power Band), guitarist, Tony Chin and Leroy "Horse mouth" Wallace on drums. The band began recording for Vincent "Chin" Randy's Impact label where Donovan voiced, "Garden Party" (and other top ten hits), "Love Of The Common People" "Sweet Caroline","Be Thankful" and "How Can I Tell Her".

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 24, 2022From Davidson, NC

The band exceeded expectations. They were very professional, personable, talented and entertaining. Outstanding in every way. I feel so fortunate to have found Sensory Expressions and been able to hire them. Our party guests were extremely impressed with the band. I strongly recommend this group.

The steel drums made the party! The drummer was on time and communication with him was easy. We've had him twice and he is fantastic!
