Donna the Buffalo will embark on a winter tour that includes three stops in New York.
The tour begins on Dec. 30 in Ponte Verda Beach, Florida, and continues through Feb. 21 at the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music, Art & Dance in Miami, Florida.
The three nights in New York are Buffalo on Jan. 30, Brooklyn on Feb. 3 and Hudson on Feb. 4.
The tour takes the band primarily through the Southeast with stops in North Carolina, Virginia and Washington, along with the Florida dates. There are a handful of dates in the Northeast in addition to the three in New York. The Trumansburg natives will also be making stops in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania.
The winter tour includes some special events. Donna the Buffalo will ring in the New Year in Tampa, Florida, on New Year’s Eve. Their Jan. 28 show in Plymouth, New Hampshire, is a free Stampede show with Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. Stampede is a campaign to mobilize people to work towards a constitutional amendment that would overturn the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which declared corporate donations to political campaigns are protected as free speech. Finally, they will act as the host band for the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music, Art & Dance in Miami, Florida, Feb. 18 to 21. They will perform throughout the festival.
From the press release:
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.
The band will be announcing more winter dates and some spring dates.
