Winter Carnival 2015: Donna the Buffalo with Driftwood at the Waterhole

Donna the Buffalo kicked Saranac Lake Winter Carnival up a notch Thursday night with a show that packed the Waterhole.

Americana string act Driftwood opened the show with an energetic set that got the audience moving. Then Donna the Buffalo took the stage and turned up the heat with their zydeco-laced dance music. The band and the audience worked up a sweat despite the freezing temperatures outside as everyone partied late into the night. Driftwood joined DTB on stage for a group encore.

Donna the Buffalo is Jeb Puryear on guitar; Tara Nevins on guitar, accordion and violin; Dave McCracken on Hammond organ, Honer clavinet and piano; Kyle Spark on bass; and drummer Mark Raudabaugh.
