DONNA THE BUFFALO TALK FESTIVALS:
Donna the Buffalo drew its original inspiration from a cherished part of the American heritage : the old-time music festivals of the south that drew entire towns and counties together. Not only was it playing music at these events, it was the vibe and the togetherness that bonded the people that attended.
“Those festivals were so explosive, and the community and the feeling of people being with each other, that's the feeling we were shooting for in our music.” Puryear says, “Donna the Buffalo is an extension of the joy we've found.”
" It’s a great feeling to promote such a feeling of community, like you’re really part of something that’s happening, like a movement or a positive force… ” Nevins says . “All those people that come and follow you and you recognize them and you become friends with them — you’re all moving along for the same purpose. It is powerful. It’s very powerful, actually.”
Donna the Buffalo is heading into the studio in February 2018 to record their next album! They are joining forces with legendary Producer/ Engineer Rob Fraboni at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, TX, one of the world's largest residential recording studios, built around an 80-year-old hacienda and pecan orchard. The band recently visited Jam in the Van while in Los Angeles and recorded a video session of one of their new songs, “Look Both Ways.” Check it out at https://youtu.be/RYDw8A2lSwI.
