Dance In The Street
Donna the Buffalo joined forces with legendary Producer & Engineer Rob Fraboni to record their new album DANCE IN THE STREET at Sonic Ranch, the world’s largest residential recording studio built around an 80-year-old hacienda on a 3,300-acre pecan orchard right along the Mexican border, near El Paso TX. Fraboni is well known for his work with Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, as Vice President at Island Records where he oversaw the remastering of the entire Bob Marley catalog as well as producing the soundtrack on Martin Scorsese’s groundbreaking concert movie, The Last Waltz. He built and designed the legendary Shangri-La studios in Malibu to the specification of Bob Dylan and the Band and is referred to as a “genius” by Keith Richards in his bestselling autobiography Life.

Overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you to Jeb & Tara for offering to have tips/donations made during their new years day show go towards helping my awesome family. It's been a really difficult time in my house with some rather serious undiagnosed health issues and the generosity of the Herd simply overwhelms me. I've always known that music was MY thing. I've spent my whole life trying to figure out how to make that work out and I'm not even that good at it. Music has always seemed a very suspect place to put all my chips but the universe has always pulled the whole me to music. What strikes me is that I believe that music does something invisible and powerful for us sometimes. When people are in need of something or are down, many go to music for something and it feeds us in a powerful way. Then this year 2 people in my home have worsening health issues and being out of work and additional expenses... THEN the people I've met through playing music come and help us. We are moved to tears. Over 350 people donated. The love and generosity stemming from the music we've shared is the most meaningful gesture I've experienced. Thank you to everyone. I think that we share a special place in this big world and love you very much. ~ David McCracken ... See MoreSee Less

So glad you feel the love. Together we are strong.
Thinking back, way back DTB shows were a life jacket for me! Wait, you still are! You are so loved and appreciated brother! 😊 PS, very humble indeed, you're fantastic!!
I am in hopes that the love you feel will help carry you through the dark days. You being light and love to us by playing your music. It is wonderful to return the favor.
The Herd is a wonderful bonding community. The music of DTB has touched many in 32 years. My first was over 30 years ago on Rochester NY. DTB opened for Rusted Root . I was blown away by the purple album. Simple but effective. The Groove was present. I hope your family will overcome these trying times my friend. We all need a little love.
From the first time I met you in Vail, I fell in love with your talent & then your soul. Rachel also touched me immediately when I met her. Love you guys & sending healing thoughts. ❤️✨
So glad we have the chance to help you, David. Your wonderful music has been helping US for a long long time! Best wishes for a better year ahead!
Praying for you and your family🙏 God is leading you down the right path!👍

Donna the Buffalo has always been my happy place, when I’m down, I jam my DTB playlist and it always uplifts my mood. I miss the energy of going to actual shows though! Can’t wait until we meet again. 💜💜

We love you all. Thank you for watching. Hope to see you all soon. Thank you for all your support of all us Buffalo's. Much love. Happy New Year!
Hi guys!! Super great show last night!! We’re here watching & jamming!! Thanks for doing this! We’ve missed you so! Good to hear you- helping to keep us sane! ❤️❤️
Are we all Martians tonight? I got here late. Might have to drag my cloaking device from the closet... I’m not in my Martian duds.
I hooked up my TV aux cables to my fender amp plugs .much more life in the stream sound. My soundbar is old and does no justice . I wish I had noticed that I could do that last night
You don't win a free coffee if you donate but you do win music surviving..help out if you can.
Much love sent ❤️ we have enjoyed seeing you all many times at Spirit of the Suwannee.
Thank you so much for playing tonight and donating tips to David's family!
They'll play whether you donate or not... That Donna.. but that's why we'll keep donating.. cause we love them... they give us so much love...💗

These shows have been awesome ~ Hope u do more in the coming weeks 🌈
Dancing in the living room....2 nights of spoiling us....keep it coming this NEW YEAR. Asheville, NC loves you to pieces.
David's first show was at Suwannee when he was sitting in for Kathy. I drove him to show from Jax airport. His last sitting in show for Kathy was Janus Landing.
❤️Thank you for another day of great music and wish Dave and family all the best❤️
I remember David's first show with the band in Southern Pines, NC.
magic. thank you. please do this as often as you can. will listen every time
So happy you played this song ~Started following you all over 20 years ago in Binghamton NY... moved to GA 6 yrs ago.. still proud to follow this tribe...
It's difficult to zydeco under my weighted blanket, but by golly, I'm doing it.
We really missed not being able to see you guys in Tampa last night!
Watched 6 hours from last night and now on for more 3 hours! Impressive. Sending love to the McCrackens and some $$
I miss Virginia Key Grassroots Festival and peeps! So many amazing years of magic especially late night! 🌴🌞✨🌕
Everybody donate another five right now... that would add $1850 to the McCracken Fund.... release the McCracken!
The sound is great. Thanks for playing yesterday and today both!
Magical. would listen to Jeb and Tara Nevins play and pay handsome tips every night
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Please join Jeb and I tonight, January 1st, 2021 at 8:00PM est. for a second show! We will be playing this additional show tonight to raise money for our bandmate David McCracken.
For those of you who don't know David very well, he supports a large family while playing keys with Donna the Buffalo.
His three year old daughter Ruby suffers from a neurological disorder and his partner Rachel is also very sick with an undiagnosed illness. As it has now been ten months since our last gig because of the pandemic, it has been a very challenging time for them with medical expenses on top of everyday living expenses piling up. We hope you will join us tonight at 8pm on Facebook Live for more music and celebration and to help us help our band mate and dear friends. All money donated will go directly to the McCracken family. ❤️
Donations can go directly to David at:
