Smart Bets: Donna the Buffalo

On its website, Trumansburg, N.Y.-based roots outfit Donna the Buffalo (pictured) describes its recipe for a 25-year career. The band is "infused with more spices than you’ll find at a Cajun cookout by way of a southern-fried, country bluegrass jamboree." That, and the group has a knack for picking prime recording locations. New album Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday was tracked in a rustic church in Enfield, N.Y., and recorded live to analog tape. Donna the Buffalo returns to The Orange Peel on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 9 p.m. The Whiskey Gentry opens. That group, led by husband-and-wife duo Lauren Staley and Jason Morrow, has been described by Paste as a “toe-tapping, steamrolling kind of band." $18/$20.
