The Lonnie Donegan Band is the group that toured with the skiffle legend for the last 30 years, fronted by Lonnie's son Peter Donegan on lead vocals, acoustic guitar, banjo, keyboards and harmonica. Their performance includes some of Lonnie's classics as well as delving into some of Lonnie's lesser-known recorded songs and some original songs written by Peter.

After Lonnie's passing, the band reformed to perform at the Rock Island Line tribute concert for Lonnie at the Royal Albert Hall, backing guest artists such as Joe Cocker, Chris Farlow, Rolf Harris, Roger Daltrey, Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison, and Chris Barber. With Peter taking his father?s lead role, the line-up proved so successful that subsequent performances were requested.
This exciting combination is now touring regularly with the shows including Lonnie's classics such as "Putting On The Syle", "Have a Drink On Me", "Rock Island Line", and "Pick a Bale of Cotton" to name just a few. It adds up to a great night of Skiffle, Blues, Jazz and a lot of foot-stomping fun!
