Formed in 1989, the five-piece band blends rock ’n’ roll, country, folk, Cajun/zydeco, pop, and old-timey styles into a highly infectious, mercilessly danceable, good-time sound that’s been dubbed “the EDM of Americana.” No wonder Levon himself loved jamming with them, at one of the late drummer’s Midnight Rambles in 2011.
Donna the Buffalo will perform at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York, on September 4 at 8pm (doors at 6pm). Tickets are $35 and $25. For more information, call (845) 679-2744 or visit http://levonhelm.com/midnight_ramble.htm.
