Barbara McDonald and John Perkins have so many musical influences in their armoury that they don't always want to stick to a single genre. That would be their idea of prison, so to enable them to experiment without upsetting their usual singer/songwriter fan base they have formed the McDonald-Perkins Band.
The band has already had chart success on the internet with songs ranging in genre from 'country rock' to retro 80's with a modern edge.
The latter being the genre of their internet chart success with 'City Of Lies (Brat Pack Confidential)' a track co written with their friend Phil Watts and inspired by the book Brat Pack Confidential by Steven Davies and Andrew Pulver.
See the video for their latest release here ... this time featuring John as lead vocalist with guests Ron and Bo Walton. 'You Disappeared.'

They have also had hits with their original version of 'Instead Of Saying Goodbye' and returned to top the charts with the song they recorded for the soundtrack of a movie called 'Portraits Of Sari.' The movie stars Ryan Windish and Kristen Hermes and premieres in November.
The song, '64 Crayons' can be heard at their MySpace page
