About the Artists
Donny Frauenhofer is a Buffalo-based musician, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and educator who is part of both regional and national touring acts as well as local bands. Although still a relatively young professional musician, he's already been nominated twice for multiple awards, including JazzBuffalo Reader's Poll Jazz Pianist of the Year. One group he composes for, THE TRUTH, has even won Runner Up for Jazz Fusion Act of the Year in 2016. Outside of Buffalo, he's traveled coast to coast with touring psychedelic rock/jazzfunk fusion act, Intrepid Travelers, which he also provides keyboards, vocals, and compositions for.
Inside Buffalo, he can be found performing solo, with his duo (The Duo+) co-led with saxophonist Ellen Pieroni, his jazz trio, or even the Donny Frauenhofer Band, a modern ensemble featuring up to ten or more of Buffalo's best musicians. From classical music, to jazz standards, to modern dance and funk music with a full band, Donny Frauenhofer's never-ending quest for musical diversity, versatility, and virtuosity has firmly established him as an artistically suprising and constantly evolving composer and musician.
