“With more than 20 years of experience, impeccable musicianship, and uplifting, heady music, Donna the Buffalo has become one of the premier Americana and roots-rock outfits on the eastern seaboard, if not the whole country.” ~ Ryan Whirty, Rochester City Paper

Donna the Buffalo continues to stampede with the Herd this winter! They will be traveling through North Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama before heading back up north to West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York before making the trek back down to Florida for the Inagural Virginia Key Grassroots Festival the 2nd weekend of February!

Travis Newbill wrote an awesome live review from Donna The Buffalo’s recent show at Revolution Live in Ft Lauderdale on Jan 9th! Some excerpts are below.

Donna’s groove is infectious, hypnotic and wholesome, subtly incorporating trance, reggae, and pop qualities into a sound which is Americana first and foremost. It is rootsy music offered by deep, sensitive players. At times they could be described as Mazzy Star, sped up and minus the echo, with an emphasis on allowing grooves to develop, peak, and come to rest.

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Tara Nevins has the presence of an Americana shaman. Whether she is zoning with the tambourine, violin, washboard, accordion, guitar, or singing, she is visibly tapping into mystical energy, and inviting all those willing into that vast space. Ditto guitarist Jeb Puryear, whose eyes roll involuntarily into the back of his head while the rest of his body surrenders as well–possessed by the groove with jaw agape.

The band was locked in from start to finish Friday night while delivering their sweetly melodic songs and jamming extensively. The crowd was locked in as well. The audience was equal parts bluegrass, Grateful Dead, and reggae people — all friendly spirits. It is no wonder why this band has such a dedicated following. There is no other band that this writer has come across that does quite what they do. And they do it with a humble confidence and great joy.

Live audience radio set
KPFA w/ David Gans
9-10pm

KPFA is at 1929 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Berkeley, CA http://galenkipar.com

Effortlessly crafting a fusion of folk, classical, jazz, and blues, Galen Kipar has been hailed as “complex yet accessible” and “cohesive and poignant.” His most recent release, The Scenic Route, was listed in WNCW’s Top 100 Albums of 2010! Host of the Grateful Dead Hour, David Gans states about the album, “It’s like a collection of short stories, brilliantly constructed and with a unique and compelling literary voice. I keep coming back to each song, listening more deeply and being drawn more deeply in. I was knocked out by their last CD, and was hoping I’d like the next one even half as much; if anything, I like this one twice as much.”


Thursday June 9

This trio brings to the stage a rockabilly/jam-band revision of all your favorites from the Fab Four!The band describes themselves as: “Beatles vocabulary with a Grateful Dead syntax… The Beatles wrote all these kick-ass songs and these amazing grooves, and then they quit ’em after three minutes. And so we’re stretching them out and stringing them together.” -David Gans – guitar, vocals

“The essence of Rubber Souldiers is the harmony singing, instrumental jamming and the experimental approach. By expanding on spontaneous things that happen, we’re creating our sound.” – Chris Rowan – guitar, vocal

“We’ve written our pieces around their pieces, our hooks around their hooks. We take some of the more obscure songs and mix them with some of the more familiar ones. We’ve opened it up so things flow within you and without you – to coin a phrase.” –Lorin Rowan – guitar, mandolin, vocals

Lingua Musica streams live to the internet and takes live audience comments as well as through online viewers via the website and twitter.

Here’s a bit more info about the folks involved, click on their images to find out more:

The Antibodies and the Pulse Dancers

The Antibodies show is like none other that you’ve seen before with music, dance and visuals — think ‘Pulp Fiction’ meets James Bond,” Showroom Director Stephen Long said in an email to the Herald Journal. The Antibodies consists of vocalist Tom Conder, Kevin Jameson on bass, Lee Holroyd on drums and Mark Branyon on guitar. Their influences are diverse, from The Clash to Ravi Shankar to Hank Williams Sr.

David Lee

David Lee

David Lee was born in Shelby, North Carolina in 1936. In his teenage years, he took up guitar, piano, and poetry. Soon David switched to songwriting and expanded his musical pursuits from there, wearing multiple hats on the local scene while working at the North Lake Country Club in Shelby for several decades. During this time, he launched the Washington Sound record store, founded three record labels–Impel, Washington Sound, and SCOP–and wrote songs and produced a plethora of local talent from R&B, to soul, to African American gospel, country, and pop. His biggest commercial success came in 1971 with his collaboration with Ann Sexton from Greenville, South Carolina. David wrote and produced her debut on Impel, with the great ballad “You’re Letting Me Down,” and it came to the attention of the famous DJ John R. in Nashville who picked it up for reissue on 77 Records. David’s legacy extends much farther than this one 45, as he put out 13 other singles and two albums on his various labels over the years. Paradise of Bachelors Records in Chapel Hill has recently released the first-ever retrospective of his important work, “Said I Had a Vision: Songs & Labels of David Lee, 1960-1988.”

Brendan Greaves, Ann Sexton and Jason PerlmutterIn 2002, while a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Jason Perlmutter began collecting local soul recordings from North and South Carolina. On campus, he also served as a disc jockey and station manager at WXYC-FM, the university’s student-run radio station. In 2005, Perlmutter founded the Carolina Soul website, which serves as a living encyclopedia dedicated to the celebration and rediscovery of soul music from the Carolinas. Later he researched and compiled the 2007/2008 Jazzman/Now-Again “Carolina Funk” release, worked on the North Carolina Arts Council African-American Music Trails project, and co-founded the Paradise of Bachelors reissue record label. Over the years he has also disc jockeyed soul music at spots throughout the Carolinas as well as in Virginia, Washington, DC, and New York City.

Paul Riddle

Drummer Paul Riddle was with the Marshall Tucker Band from 1973 – 1983. He was heavily influenced by Buddy Rich and his jazz styling were unique to a rock and roll band and heavily contributed to their unique style of music. He still lives in Spartanburg where he owns a drum stick company, The Carolina Stick Company, and teaches lessons. He occasionally sits in with the Allman Brothers Band and plays in a local band called Throbber.

Joe Bennett
Joe Bennet was the lead guiratist of 1950’s Rock n Roll group based out of Spartanburg, The Sparkletones, whose story should have been a movie. For a lot of listeners, they were and are what rockabilly music was really all about — four kids from the south, none older than 16 and one as young as 13 when they started, getting together and making fast, sometimes raunchy sounds, literally the soundtrack to their own teen years, and having a lot of fun and getting an adventure out of it. Their music at its best sounded as freewheeling as their approach to it really was, and they were rewarded in October of 1957 with a number 17 placement on the Billboard charts for the only record they ever did chart, “Black Slacks.”

Joe Kendrick
Lingua Musica springs from Joe Kendrick‘s love of music and the spoken word, and is the culmination of his work as a radio host and business owner along with his love of journalism and music, its culture and history.
