Jim Donovan and Sun King Warriors
One of the great joys of my life and some of the most amazing experiences have been performing with Jim Donovan as conguero/percussionist since 2006 when Jim transitioned from Rusted Root drummer and began Drum The Ecstatic International. We have since evolved/morphed into Jim Donovan and Sun King Warriors with an ensemble of musicians that are some of the greatest friends and more impressive people I feel very fortunate to know and share life with! Come see a show and feel it! SKW is: Jim Donovan (vocals, guitar), Kent Tonkin (bass), Kevin McDonald (guitar), Dan Murphy (guitar), Dr. Harry Pepper (percussion), Bryan Fazio (percussion) and Joe Marini (drums). Sun King Warriors have released two albums and can be heard on Pittsburgh radio WDVE 102.5 and WYEP 91.3.

Poetry and original artwork
American middle class values collide with absolute freedom and alienation as Fazio takes us on a twenty year journey of disillusionment. With big heart, transparency, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, one man’s passion for life and love is comprehensively unveiled.
