THE CASTAWAYS are a nationally-known Minnesota based rock'n'roll band that audiences have been demanding, and enjoying for many years. From community concerts, fairs and festivals, to country clubs and wedding receptions, The Castaways provide an exciting show with great sound and lights. 

The Castaways are comprised of four talented musicians. Jim Donna, keyboards and vocals, was one of the band's original founders. In the band's early days, The Castaways recorded co-writer Jim's song 'Liar, Liar' which became a million seller that vaulted the band into the nation's top ten! In later years, Bob Donna, guitar and vocals, joined the band along with Rick Snider, drums/vocals, and Ralph Hintz, bass/vocals. In 2005, Jim Donna was inducted into the Minnesota Rock/Country Hall of Fame. 

The band features a versatile song list and plays the best hits from such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Elvis, Buddy Holly, to the Beatles, Motown artists, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and many more. The band also performs special tributes to the music of the Beach Boys and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
