Donkey Serenade is an independent album released by Australian rock band Weddings Parties Anything comprising four cover versions (Canada's The Lowest of the Low's "Rosy and Grey", Bob Dylan's "If You Gotta Go", Strange Tennants' "Grey Skies" and The Triffids' "Wide Open Road"), four new songs written or co-written by Michael Thomas and a couple of old songs re-recorded, "Nothing Left to Say".[2]

The album (released on CD and cassette) was only available by mail order, via the band's website.[3] The album featured a new bass player Stephen 'Irish' O'Prey, formerly of The Badloves, drummer Michael Barclay, and violinist Jen Anderson (The Black Sorrows) who became an official instead of part-time member of the band.[4]
