Angry Donkey formed in December 2011 at Hermosa Beach Pier Plaza. The acoustic foursome immediately found residence at The Shore (also Studio, and now The Standing Room) on Hermosa Avenue. They evolved into a full scale rock cover band in less than 2 years, adding the professional talents of a female lead vocalist and female keyboardist.

Hermosa's true hometown cover band has played venues such as The Lighthouse Café, Saint Rocke, The Standing Room, Hennessey's Tavern, 12th & Highland, Grumman's Chinese Theater, Morningview Studios. In 2015, they were invited to perform at the Beer Garden Stage during Fiesta Hermosa, where they rocked a packed crowd.

The band's current roster consists of founders Ben on lead guitar, Joey on rhythm guitar, Arnie on drums. They also feature Latin Grammy nominated Renzo on bass, NYU composer/keyboardist Cece, and rising star female vocalist, Coral!
