Daniel Donato and Cosmic Country 

When Paul Levine unveiled the lineup for Suwannee Rising, I was able to write a preview about most of the bands on the lineup. The name that had me confused was Daniel Donato and Cosmic Country, but it sounded good and was in the penultimate slot between St. Paul & the Broken Bones and The Nth Power Ball. Sure, why not?

Suffice to say Donato and crew were my favorite new discovery of the festival. At the time, we wrote:

Daniel Donato was listed on the lineup as “cosmic country.” I wasn’t sure what might be. I am sure now. I will never miss this guy and his band. It was fabulous! The setlist below is just an attempt, but frankly it didn’t matter what Donato on guitar and his bandmates played; it was awesome. Many missed it jockeying for position for the grand finale. Everything flowed so nicely, with Dead-like and ABB-like themes throughout. Check him out for sure.

Not only that, but The Nth Power invited him up to shred on their set closer “Whipping Post”!

You’ve got opportunities all over the place to check out Cosmic Country. Make the most of those opportunities!
