The Bunnies 25th Anniversary Show

Well-known and beloved '80s-era rockers the Bunnies are reuniting to perform a 25th anniversary show next month. The event will take place at The End, 2219 Elliston Square on the "Rock Block" in Nashville on Friday night, October 5th. Revolution Machine, Dangerous Doll and Shrinking Violet will also be appearing.

The Bunnies were a popular mid-card local band during the early-to-mid-80s, featuring vocalist/songwriter Donna Frost, her brother and the band's drummer Tony (a talented alumni of a number of Nashville rock bands), guitarist Chuck Allen and bassist Todd McAlpin in the band's best-known line-up. The Bunnies had a very cool and timeless pop-rock sound that plays as great today as it did back in the decade. During the band's run, they played with bands like the Practical Stylists, the Times and the Most at clubs like Cantrell's, Spanky's, K.O. Jams and the Cannery.

For the reunion show, Donna and Tony Frost recruited former guitarist Jeff Allen back to play, and enlisted Turina Davis, a former bandmate of Donna's from the Paper Dolls, to play bass. I've included a mp3 of a vintage Bunnies track below (courtesy of Allen Sullivant's Nashville '80s Rock Archive - check it out!).

After you listen to "What's Wrong" and you want to hear more from the band, check out their official "Bunnies 07" MySpace page at www.myspace.com/thebunnies07 for more music, a band bio and other goodies. Then go see the Bunnies play in October!
