Davina and the Vagabonds
Since exploding onto the scene in 2005, DAVINA AND THE VAGABONDS (DATV) have grown from a down-and-dirty blues band into one of the most exciting acoustic ensembles on the international stage. This high-energy quintet, influenced by Fats Domino, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, draws from the last century of American music, converting audiences one show at a time. More than just a blues act, DATV’s shows overflow with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, and tender gospel passages. Davina Sowers defies category in a different way, and although often compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, comparisons don’t suffice. Sowers is a true original.

Whether it’s deep, slow blues or uptempo rockers, Tinsley Ellis always plays with grit, soul, and unbridled passion.
