Scene and Herd
Standing somewhere between the root pop of Poi Dog Pondering and a Louisiana zydeco outing, Donna the Buffalo serves up a simmering blend of Cajun, folk, rock, and even country-tinged fare. The road-tested group has woven these influences together for nearly two decades at festivals and dance halls across the country. From the fiddle-inflected "Way Back When" and the whimsical melody of "Rockin' Horse" to the sunny vocals of "Blue Sky," the wistful strains of "Deeds of a Few," and the infectious hooks of "Rock of Ages," Donna explores a wide range of styles while keeping its sound focused enough to appreciate. The outfit whose name was chosen after a vote for "Dawn of the Buffalo" was misheard hails from upstate New York and has recorded with a host of artists, including alt-country songsmith Jim Lauderdale.
Donna the Buffalo plays at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at Revolution, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $18 in advance, $20 at the door. Call 954-727-0950.
