As of 2010, the Castaways are technically still a surviving group
, but James Donna is the only original member still interested, so the Castaways is basically James Donna and whoever he hires. They are exclusively a cover band. Far from aspiring to the studio and Billboard charts, they are available for weddings, birthdays, and special events. For your information, these people are true Minnesotans. People from the Twin Cities don't like to make a big deal of themselves. You will never hear about the Minnesotan who wanted to take over the world and would stop at nothing.
Oh, and by the way: Knowing about the Castaways officially makes you a hipster.
