On Friday, March 16th, 2007 at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with Americana jam band Donna the Buffalo.
If there is one unifying principle behind the music of Donna the Buffalo, it’s that when something feels right, you run with it. That philosophy has kept the upstate New York- based band’s fans grooving throughout its 17-year history. The guitarist and co-founder Jeb Puryear said he’s not exactly sure what makes the band’s varied perspectives and diversity of styles gel into one distinctive sound- it just does.
Donna the Buffalo started as a collection of old-time musicians playing fiddle tunes. But as Puryear and bandmate Tara Nevins began writing songs, the influences expanded to include classic rock, reggae and zydeco music. It doesn’t hurt having a throng of dance-ready fans at any of the approximately 100 shows they do per year. Since its birth, the band has enjoyed a successful run on the festival circuit, including gigs at North Carolina’s MerleFest and Colorado’s Telluride Bluegrass Festival. They even founded their own Grassroots Festival in 1990 to benefit AIDS research.
