Donovan was the Cajun/Zydeco Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 Big Squeeze Competition

Donovan started playing the accordion when he was 10 years old. His grandfather was one of his biggest influences growing up and left Donovan his accordion when he passed. His deep passion for the music keeps him playing with a variety of bands in hopes of "keeping the Cajun tradition alive until [his] very last breath."
