WMNF is celebrating our 40 Year Anniversary with special events that reflect our history. As part of this celebration, the WMNF  tribe is bringing in the New Year with Donna the Buffalo – the band that has played ten New Year’s Eve events with us. To make it even more historic, our New Year’s party will return to the first venue that Donna the Buffalo ever played in Florida,  the Cuban Club Courtyard (they played the 1994 Tropical Heatwave).  From that Heatwave set 25 years ago, Donna the Buffalo spring-boarded to become one of the most enduring and popular festival bands in Florida, known for their long, groove-filled sets that pack the dance floors and summon communal spirits.   Be part of the “Conscious Evolution”.

Longtime WMNF favorites Have Gun, Will Travel and new favorites Someday Honey will open!

Have Gun,  Will Travel  –  One of WMNF’s favorite bands for over a decade, Have Gun, Will Travel have a natural instinct for combining folk, pop, rock and classic country influences to create a sound all their own. “Their music has a great energy to it with infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains” remarked NPR’s Robin Hilton. American Songwriter called HGWT’s music “organic, infectious Americana Pop. Their music has a refreshing immediacy to it.” Their new album Strange Chemistry is one of the best albums of year, receiving national acclaim.

“Seeing them play live is akin to having a backstage pass at a closed recording session” Fronted by the talented Kaleigh Baker, who brings a bluesy blend of songwriting with gypsy roots. Her music is inspired by her rock attitude, jazz, and mountain-soul.  The band includes Matt Walker, Mark Cunningham, and Sam Farmer. Together, they bring 4-part harmonies and a fun and energizing set list.
