Donna the Buffalo
From Cajun to country, reggae to improv, zydeco boogie to roots-rock riot, Donna the Buffalo aims for the best of what music has to offer.

Their singular sound features upbeat grooves, inspirational lyrics, memorable hooks, superb musicianship and an overwhelming sense of celebration. They’re an American institution, socially conscious yet eternally danceable.

17-year career. 100,000 records sold. 100 gigs a year. 15,000 attendees at the 2004 Grassroots Festival. No, this is not a MasterCard commercial. It’s just that numbers don’t hold a lot of value for Donna the Buffalo. For this eclectic upstate New York band, success isn’t quantitative. It isn’t being in constant rotation on Top 40 radio stations or video networks. It isn’t how much money’s rolling in or even how many people are in the band. “We just do what we do. And it’s a very natural thing. It’s a thing we find joy in and it’s a lifestyle that we’ve pursued for… ever,” says guitarist/vocalist Jeb Puryear, one of the band’s two primary songwriters. “We don’t manipulate any of our circumstances for the market.” That includes the band’s sound, which piles reggae, rock, country, zydeco, Cajun, and folk on top of old-time fiddle music to create a combination best described as original American dance music. “The thing about our music is that as eclectic as it is, it is also very accessible,” fellow songwriter Tara Nevins (fiddle, accordion, scrubboard, guitar and vocals) says. “It’s simple, straight-forward, melody-oriented and easy to take in.”
