Donna The Buffalo at WorkPlay .. and Music and Tickets Giveaway!!

If you've never had the chance to enjoy a concert at WorkPlay, you must find an opportunity. The intimate atmosphere (which even includes some cozy BOOTHS in the back!), the sophisticated's amazing. It's definitely one of my favorite date locations in Birmingham.

And, a show is coming to town that sounds like a great fit for a night of relaxing at WorkPlay!

Donna the Buffalo's eclectic and often socially conscious music has it's base in traditional mountain music and is infused with elements of Cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country. The group’s core are vocalists Tara Nevins, who plays fiddle, guitar, accordion, and scrubboard, and guitarist Jeb Puryear. Keyboardist Dave McCracken, bassist Jay Sanders, and drummer Vic Stafford complete the ensemble.

Donna the Buffalo represents one of the most respected brands in the world of touring roots acts. For 21 years DTB has performed feel good, infectious music that often moves listeners physically and spiritually. In the words of a longtime fan, "Their songs are well known to contain lyrics offering poetry and sage commentary on the attractions and struggles with love and politics in this life. Their magnetic musical mix has often been described as dance music, and, for sure, there is everything from foot-tapping to get-up-and-feel-ecstatic moving in their sound; but there is also some deeply satisfying solace in what DTB has to say and how they say it. The dynamic songwriting tandem of Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins have penned over 140 songs in their collaboration with DTB."

The band's 2008 release Silverlined, on Sugar Hill Records, rose to #8 on the Americana Music Chart. With a twenty-one year tenure to celebrate, hundreds of gigs ahead of them, and an ever-evolving grassroots sound; it looks like Donna the Buffalo is riding a cloud that is truly Silverlined.

I would love to win tickets! =-) I live in FL but I will actually be in AL for a vacation with family. Ive listened to their music via a friend for awhile but Ive recently become a part of the "herd" after a live show close to home in Tampa, FL at Skippers Smokehouse.

B-Ham is about 2 hours from where I will be but it will be worth the drive, especially since the hubby will get to catch DTB at the Suwannee Festival in FL while Im gone =-)
