Jackpot Donnie
Jackpot Donnie
Jackpot Donnie blends reggae, hard rock, funk, and blues for loyal audiences across the Chicago-land area. The band "features a crisp, even professional vibe that's seldom heard from indie acts" (Frank Krolicki – Chicago Examiner). The RedEye Chicago says, "Jackpot Donnie offers throaty, imploring vocals, a sumptuous ska undertone and choruses that captivate listeners."

The brand new Mayday! EP was released on March 29, 2013 with one hell of a celebration at Metro Chicago. The record is a collaboration between Jackpot Donnie and producer/engineer Steve Gillis (former drummer of Filter) at Transient Sound Studio in Chicago. Their first full-length album "Music Nightly" was released in 2008, followed by the "New Mode" EP in 2010.

Formed in 2003, the band is comprised of Matt Love (vocals/guitar), Brian Wise (guitar), Adam Campbell (drums), and David Langley (bass). Newcomer Peter Spero (keys) joined the band in 2011, bringing years of experience as a MCA (The Lonesome City Kings) and RCA (TAMI Show) recording artist.

Jackpot Donnie's music has been featured on radio, television (E! Network) and film (Sunset Star). You can find JPD in many of Chicagoland's finest venues, including House of Blues, Metro, Lincoln Hall, Double Door, Durty Nellie's, Cubby Bear Chicago, The Abbey, and Bottom Lounge. The band has established its identity as one of Chicago's most energetic rockers, and has been spreading rock and roll across the city, suburbs, and beyond.
