Donna the Buffalo to play at Treleaven Wines this summer

Apr 20, 2017

Donna the Buffalo will bring their distinctive, groove-heavy and danceable music to Treleaven Wines on Saturday, Aug. 26.

The Ithaca-based band will be headlining the winery’s late-summer event, Donna the Buffalo and Friends. The full-day celebration will also feature performances by roots rock ensemble, Sim Redmond Band, and Root Shock will kick off the day's activities at 2 p.m. with their high-energy soul reggae. There will be a selection of Finger Lakes food trucks to choose from, including Alexander’s, Chicken Bandit, Over the Moon Grilled Cheeserie and The Good Truck, and Treleaven wine, wine slushies and local craft beers will be on tap. 

One of the most dynamic and determined bands continuously touring America since 1989, Donna the Buffalo is a band for the people that is accessible, positive and memorable.  With roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric American mix infused with elements of Cajun/zydeco, rock, folk, reggae and country, Donna’s music often contains social and moral responsibility as core beliefs, and they are just imply fun to get out and celebrate life with. The band is Jeb Puryear (vocals, electric guitar) and Tara Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, scrubboard), joined by David McCracken (Hammond organ, Hohner Clavinet & piano), Kyle Spark (bass) and Mark Raudabaugh (drums).
