Donna the Buffalo Performs Saturday Night of Village Stroll

Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) will present the popular roots band Donna the Buffalo in concert on Saturday, December 14 at 8:00 PM. Tickets start at $20 and are available by calling the LPCA Box Office at 518.523.2512 or online at

Donna the Buffalo (DTB) is back to entertain locals and visitors alike during this year's Lake Placid Holiday Village Stroll. It's the time of year when people are excited to listen to music that makes you feel good, and DTB does just that.

DTB melds old time country, funk, pop, reggae and more to create meaningful, danceable songs. Since they last performed at the LPCA in 2013, Donna the Buffalo has come out with a new album, Dance in the Street. Working in collaboration with Rob Fraboni, widely acclaimed for his work with Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones, they produced a fully analog recording from tape to vinyl.

Tara Nevins, DTB co-founder, says the songs "...on this record are about letting go. Whether it be the attachment of love lost, the past, or the particular blue funk you're coming out of." Though some of the songs explore difficult life experiences, the main message is encouragement and community.

Fellow co-founder Jeb Puryear explains, "the fans, they show up to be a part of it. We show up to be a part of it... If a scene is really on, it doesn't matter whether you're watching, listening, dancing, or playing – it's on, everybody knows it's on and it feels great! I think that's the nature of the connection."
