“Portland quartet Don & The Quixotes makes its mission abundantly clear… a mostly instrumental surf odyssey marked by quirk, a little sleaze, a lot of love and a glaze of grit. Consider the party rocked.”
-AP KRYZA, Willamette Week, 3/28/12
Thanks to Clint Sargent for the live video!

I met you phenoms at mikes, when you shot green screen. The final product is hilarious. Thanks for copy of My Name Is Don, I make Mike and all listen to it all the time. If we ever get a TV show again,I’d still live to have Don And The Quixotes be house band.
Your counts and syncopations,
Your minor modes and diverse percussion,
Your fucking daring harmonies.
And you guys got a wry sense of humor.
It was an honor meeting you all.

Hi My name is Heath,
Thanks for taking the time to read this email! Your music is awesome, and I really enjoyed checking out your videos. I’m also in a band, Water, Water (https://soundcloud.com/water-water-1), and your band was suggested as a possibility for collaboration by my friends Nate and Marissa. Our project started in the studio, so we’re new to the club scene even though all of us have been in bands for a long time. We are getting our name out there now, and our calendar is starting to fill up with gigs.
Your band was on the the list for compatible bands to play with. We’re in the process of setting up shows, and we’ll definitely need some great bands to fill the bill with us. We are also open to helping you out with any vacancies,
We have a show at Dantes 11/18 and the White Eagle on January 13th, and we were hoping that you’d like to join us. If you have plans then, or you have a venue in mind for another show please let us know. We can do the legwork in setting it up. Just let us know who to contact, and we’ll make it happen!
We’re getting ready to release a full length, and are really excited to get back to playing shows as a new band.
We appreciate your consideration!
