The Skygreen Leopards


Biography

"In 2001 (year of the Snake) the Skygreen Leopards began as a duo consisting of Glenn Donaldson and Donovan Quinn in the hobo-Victoria of San Francisco. We met in the park where we'd both brought our acoustic guitars. I said do you know how to play that old spiritual There is an Island in the Sun? and he replied no. But I know Pilgrim from the Hinterlands and thus the SGLs were born. For the next few months we played in the park until a certain ranger busted us for corrupting an underage park mime. So far we've recorded an ep and 6 lps. In 2003 (year of the Ram) the Skyband was started for live performances. There's been several people that have soldiered our various hoedowns during that time. For the last couple of years Jasmyn Wong has played drums & Shayde Sartin has played bass. Jason Quever & Wymond Miles have indulged in our iguana rituals as well." - Green Peter
