“Donny Frauenhofer is a virtuosic multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, and educator from Buffalo, NY that has been making big waves both regionally as well as nationally in several genres since the start of his professional career. Dipping his toes into multiple scenes, Frauenhofer has become a recognizable name with nationally touring act Intrepid Travelers (dubbed “Improvisation Kings” by The Buffalo News Gusto) and their performances at festivals such as Summer Camp Music Festival, Night Lights Music Festival, Some Kind of Jam, Woodhenge Sustainability Festival, among others.
Largely known as Buffalo’s best kept secret, the secret may be out. In 2018 Frauenhofer was nominated for “John Hunt Jazz Artist of the Year” – the youngest to be nominated in the poll’s history. Additionally, he’s been nominated as “Best Jazz Pianist”, “Best Jazz Organist”, and “Rising Star” in JazzBuffalo’s Reader’s Poll 3 years running, and received an award for “Best Jazz Fusion Act” with THE TRUTH, a group he helps compose and arrange for. Constantly rejecting and reinventing narrow labels to expand his craft, Frauenhofer truly best represents an incoming generation of musicians that embrace and access an infinite amount of influences
