Donna the Buffalo (Sawtelle Room)

Donna the Buffalo's feel-good, groove-oriented, danceable and often socially conscious music all began over twenty years ago with roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric Americana mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country. Some long-time fans still refer to the band as "Dawn of the Buffalo", the proposed group name before a slurred overture by an intoxicated M.C. dubbed them Donna the Buffalo to which the name stuck.

The Installers - Blues & Barbeque Party!

The Installers play the blues. Sounds simple, right? Think again. At one end of the band you have drummer Jim Burns itching for a romp through “Texas Flood,” or any other sort of Austin-inspired, guitar-driven blues. At the other end, guitarist Kevin Visnaskas is teaching The Installers Tiny Grimes’s 1940s jazz blues “Drinking Beer.”  Nevertheless this long-running combo formed by Burns and singer Stephen Clarke manages to pull it all together and remain a popular draw around New England...

"Jazz at Vernissage" - Neotolia

Music is a universal language, spanning across all of space and time. Today, Nazan Nihal and Utar Artun are taking music into a new dimension, bringing the old sounds of Turkish Folk Songs (Turku) to life in their new project, Neotolia. Nazan is a remarkable singer/songwriter and Utar possesses unlimited potential as a composer, conductor, film scorer and arranger.

Nazan and Utar want to share their contemporary perception of the music that rose out of Anatolia, music with the power to erase the boundaries between history and current times.
