with Donna Hopkins Band in The Crown!
Gooseberry Jam‘s music is best described as Rock n Roll- though it may be better termed as Roots Rock. Sometimes it comes with an acoustic edge, sometimes it leans towards Americana, and sometimes it’s just plain out in your face! It depends on the night and the mood. The music takes the band for a ride – and the band invites you to come along!
For a most excellent Gooseberry Jam, you can start with this simple recipe…
– First, take Sean Cox on drums & vocals, along with Randy Wagoner on bass guitar…mix well & pour, to form the solid base that this recipe will require.
– Next, add Doyle Hinkle on lead guitar & vocals, & mix until well blended.
– Now add a little more volume to that guitar, and let the mix rise!
– Last, we’ll add some words from singer/songwriter, Darrell Craig on lead vocals, along with rhythm guitar.
– Now just mix well, let simmer, and ENJOY!
If you like true-to-the-core music, Roots rock, Americana (and we mean true-grit rock n’ roll with a southern-fried taste of soul), then we hope you’ll come out and get yourself a taste of Gooseberry Jam!

Donna Hopkins is the real deal. Born and raised on an Alabama farm, Donna witnessed hardship first-hand. Today, she channels her experiences into the soulful music she creates and performs. Music runs in her family; her mother performed rock and roll in go-go boots and miniskirts and her grandfather was a fine musician in his own right. Following in their footsteps, Donna is a seasoned performer with many songs and performances under her belt. She has opened for or shared the stage with such luminaries as Col. Bruce Hampton, Derek Trucks, Francine Reed, Joe Bonamassa, Emily Saliers (The Indigo Girls), Stevie Wonder, and Robert Cray (to name just a few).
Always a crowd-pleaser, Donna Hopkins is as much at home in an intimate listening venue as she is on a giant festival stage, performing both solo and accompanied by the perfectly-seasoned group of musicians who make up the Donna Hopkins Band.
