Trumansburg, N.Y. — Donna the Buffalo has been playing together in the Ithaca area since 1989.

Twenty-five years later, the Americana sextet is still drawing huge crowds. And it’s still — to the delight of thousands of adoring fans — playing GrassRoots, which it helped found.


The band’s following is so strong that it’s even developed its own proud crew: “The Herd.”

So today — in conjunction with the band, and with The Herd in mind — we’re announcing a contest to that will be running over at The Ithaca Voice’s Facebook page.

Here’s how it works: Write a Facebook comment explaining why you’re excited for Donna the Buffalo’s set at GrassRoots, and you’ll be automatically entered into a pool to win 1) A copy of the band’s latest album “Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday;” 2) A 25th year anniversary band poster (below).

If you also share the Facebook post, you’ll double your chances of winning the prizes, which you can pick up the show.
