Win FREE TIX to Donna the Buffalo @ Putnam Den on Friday!

For more than two decades now, guitarist Jeb Puryear and fiddler Tara Nevins have been leading Donna the Buffalo in a delirious, dizzying musical hybrid that somehow manages to blend together such disparate genres as reggae, bluegrass, zydeco, folk, rock, Cajun and country. Simply put, it’s groove-oriented, highly danceable, socially conscious music that just makes you feel good.

The band has been busy recording their upcoming tenth album, and they’ll be previewing some of the as-yet-unreleased tunes (like the one above) when Donna the Buffalo stampedes into Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs on Friday night (September 28). Tix are $20, and the music gets underway at 9pm. And don’t forget your dancin’ shoes…

BUT WAIT… we’re giving away a pair of FREE TIX to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The winner will be selected at random and notified on Friday morning. Good luck! Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified by email.

    Great band! I tried to get the opener for my band The Lazy Suns. I plan on going. A free Tix would let me bring a friend who has not heard the band.
