Donna The Buffalo at The Orange Peel

                     Black Betty and I got our groove on at one hell of 
                     a Donna The Buffalo show last night at the Orange 
                     Peel. This week is being celebrated as The 
                     Birthday Week of Carolina resident and 
                     keyboardist extraordinaire Dave McCracken. 
                     Although, and I kid you not, at one point he 
                     actually had a cordless drill out on stage while 
                     the rest of the band was playing, in an attempt to
                     repair a broken component of his rode-hard and
                     road-weary organ.
                     McCracken persevered as he always manages
                     to do and ended the night by fueling an insanely 
                     scorching hot jam during a blistering encore 
                     rendition of Hot Tamale Baby which stampeded 
                     the herd in a hoof hopping, buffalo boogie frenzy. 
                     I've said it before, Donna the Buffalo is hot, hot,
                     hot, right now. 
                     The planets are in perfect "Donna" alignment.
                     See 'em now, don't miss 'em!
