Donna The Buffalo kicks off for their Fall tour this weekend starting with the last festival of the season at Magnolia Fest in Live Oak, Florida! Then the band makes their way to the west coast for the first time in a few years with stops in Mobile, New Orleans, Austin, Albuquerque and Flagstaff before few shows in southern California. Then they head north and link up with David Gans for four shows in the Bay Area after which they make their way to Eugene and Portland and finish up the tour in Seattle before heading back east.
Donna the Buffalo is answering The Herd’s call to come south with a seven-day New Years Eve run in South Florida which includes a night at Revolution in Ft Lauderdale, three nights at Skippers in Tampa and three nights at the Green Parrot in Key West.
Finally, there is a buffalo named Donna! DtB has launched a campaign to help relocate over 140 wild bison from a private ranch in Montana to their native lands on the Wyoming Wind River Reservation. The band presented the following idea to the National Wildlife Federation and they loved it! It costs just $50.00 to move one of these bison back to its native land. What DtB proposed is a "SAVE THE BUFFALO" campaign where if you donate $50.00 you will essentially "ADOPT A BUFFALO" and the bison will be NAMED AFTER YOU! (Or your child, or loved one, anyone you want actually). Donna The Buffalo started the campaign and have now saved and adopted a buffalo... and named it Donna. They are calling on The Herd for support as well. More information here: http://wp.me/pxjHY-1LY
Donna the Buffalo's feel-good, groove-oriented, danceable and often socially conscious music all began over twenty years ago with roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric Americana mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country. Donna the Buffalo is known for touring the country remaining fiercely independent as one of the industry’s most diverse roots-music bands and has "earned a reputation as one of the most respected, eclectic and hardest-working acts today," praises Encore.
