Davina & the Vagabonds
Let's start the weekend off with a bang! All the way from the Twin Cities in Minnesota comes a band full of creative energy and a sound that will stay with you for the rest of the event. Whether it's Davina singing or the rest of the band kicking it just right, you will be needing to find someone to dance every song. What a treat to have her here, for real.
"From the churning emotion of Billie Holiday to Amy Winehouse by way of Etta James!"
"At first glance, the very idea of a blues band without a guitar player strikes the mind as a daring if not totally outrageous concept. But, Davina & the Vagabonds, a Minneapolis-based quintet driven by New Orleans horns and the campy purr of vocalist/pianist Davina Sowers, carry it off with such aplomb that you won’t miss the usual six-string histrionics one bit.Listening to Davina & the Vagabonds is like stepping into a wondrous musical time machine. They have the panache and superlative musicianship to recreate the retro sound and ageless appeal of golden age Americana in high-definition reality on stage for your immense pleasure and enjoyment."
