The Bella Donna is made up of Greg Tunis on vocals, Brian Montes on guitar and vocals, Mitch Cochran on guitar, Ray Halm on keyboards and Jarrod Rose on drums.

We describe The Bella Donna's sound as indie core. Our music cascades from brutal to meaningful, exploring deep existential questions and raw emotions, with vocals that swing from throaty growls to soaring hooks.

Our influence comes from Blink 182, P.O.D., Taking Back Sunday and Circa Survive. Besides bands, we are definitely influenced by life's ups and downs.

If The Bella Donna went out for a night of karaoke, which songs would you choose?

Definitely Journey's "Dont Stop Believing" and Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby"!!

Check out our cover of Carley Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe":

If you could create your dream tour, which artists would you bring along?

We would bring Blink 182, Coheed and Cambria, P.O.D. and A Day To Remember!!

What is on your Christmas list this year? 

We would like a 15-passenger van, a safer world and for The Bella Donna to be a household name. =]

What's next for The Bella Donna? Where are you performing next? 

Our next show is in Buffalo on Sunday, December 23 at Xtreme Wheels Skate Park on Hertel Avenue. After that, we will be touring with a band from Standby Records, Along Came A Spider, on the East Coast during January!

Here's another video by The Bella Donna, raising awareness for a very serious subject:
