Just Added: Photos From The Mardi Gras Ball, 2/13/10, Cranston, RI

2/13/10 Cranston, RIThis year marked Donna the Buffalo's first appearance at Lagniappe Productions' Annual Cajun & Zydeco Mardi Gras Ball, but judging from the band's performance and the crowd's response, it mostly likely won't be the last time DtB headlines this event. The Ball took place at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet in beautiful Cranston, RI. Kevin Umlauf was at this party, and generously shares with us 4 photos of DtB playing on 2/14/10 in Cranston, RI. Also on the bill were Corey Ledet and Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys. Kevin's photos include shots of DtB sharing the stage with Steve Riley. First DtB joined Steve for Oh Ma during his set, and then the band had Steve and several members of his band come out for the last third of their set, which included performances of No Place Like The Right Time, Uncle Bud, and Hot Tamale Baby. DtB ended the night with a raucous Funky Side. Thanks for the photos, Kevin! (posted 2/24/10)

Paul Livingstone and John Ramspacher were both lucky enough to attend this special gig, and collectively share with us 12 photos of Jeb and Tara playing on 2/14/10 in New York, NY. "Some of the highlights of Sunday night were Peggy O, Deeds of a Few, There Must Be, Rockin' Horse and In This Life," John said. "The rest [of the set consisted of] typical DtB songs, with a Mardi Gras set thrown in. What was nice was that they were open to Q&A between songs. All in all it was a very up close and intimate evening; they played long and all of us left satisfied." Thanks for the photos, guys! (posted 2/18/10)

Just Added: Photos From 2/5/10 Charlotte, NC

2/5/10 Charlotte, NCMaggie Roberge must have had a heck of a good time at Donna the Buffalo's show last Friday night: First she took a bunch of great photos of DtB playing on 2/5/10 at The Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC. Then, she capped off the night by (at Jeb's urging) joining the band onstage to lead a sing-along of No Place Like The Right Time (right). To give Tara's voice a well-deserved rest, the band played a set heavy on Jeb Puryear songs this night, including Tomorrow Still Knows, Me and Depression, Ding Dang Dong, It's Love Time, and the new one, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday. Jeb also stepped up and took lead vocals on Blue Sky and Family Picture. After the band closed the set with Maggie on NPLTRT, for the encore first Jeb and Tara came out to do Mystic Water as a duet, and then the entire band played America. Thanks to taper Jack Bender, you can already listen to or download this show from Maggie's father, Paul, also has kindly shared one of his beautifully written reviews of this show, which I'll post shortly.
