About the Event
Join us in the park for the 3rd concert of the 2023 season with The Donna Woodall Group + special guest Emmet Mulrooney.
Donna Woodall grew up with family sing-alongs, church choirs, movie musicals, and a lifetime supply of albums from her parent’s vast and diverse music collection. Her earliest influences were greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Barbra Streisand, and Johnny Mathis, along with Elton John, Billy Joel, The Beatles, and Stevie Wonder. She attributes her specific love of jazz music to her grandfather, who encouraged a young Donna to “sit and listen” to swinging divas, and to her mother, Jeanne Woodall, who performed in Milwaukee jazz circles, leaving behind a legacy of song after her passing in 2011.
Donna Woodall began her Milwaukee music career singing with top local groups, The Eddie Butts Band and Streetlife (former house band of the Milwaukee Bucks). She quickly discovered her own voice and style, forming the Donna Woodall Group. With her unique mix of jazz/blues and pop originals and covers, Donna Woodall blurs musical genres and presents lush, intimate vocals with every performance. She has established herself as a skilled singer, bandleader, and songwriter in the Milwaukee music scene. Masterful delivery and a captivating stage performance set Donna apart from the rest.
