Davina and The Vagabonds
Fri, Aug 31, 7:30 - 9:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
“….one of the most distinctive and expressive vocalists to come around in a while, with tight backing from the Vagabonds” -- Phoenix Blues Society
“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.” -- Thunder Bay Blues Festival/Canada
“…easily among the breakout stars at this year’s Monterey Jazz festival.” -- Monterey Herald
What can we say? You gotta be here for this one. Even if you've got plans to be in Nepal to climb the big one, or Mali to sojourn in Timbuktu or Akron to visit your Aunt Mildred, cancel. And spend an evening with us filled with sass and good vibes. Davina & The Vagabonds is definitely a must see for every Shedd patron!
Well, for most of you, anyway. Bluesy, blustery, bawdy and irresistibly fun, Davina Sowers and her band have carved their own niche in the blues world with their high-energy live performances and rollicking compositions that combine elements of boogie-woogie, ragtime, early rock and Basin Street, anchored by the prodigiously talented pianist and singer Davina Sowers. Hailing from Minneapolis-Saint Paul, the band built their careers in the trenches of the Twin Cities club scene, playing as many as 300 shows a year before making the jump to international recognition. Their last studio release, Sunshine, received a four-star review from DownBeat, and their new live album, Nicollet and Tenth, documents a typically raucous performance at their hometown club, The Dakota. With a musical signature that marries Sowers’ barrelhouse piano and gutsy, sweet vocals with a loose-limbed rhythm section and boisterous brass, Davina and Vagabonds bring an irrepressible energy.
