This jazz blues band hailing from Twin Cities, Minn., has been charming audiences across the globe since 2006. Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds bring a new twist to an old sound. Rooted in early-20th-century blues and jazz, the band infuses elements of blues, jazz, R&B, soul, and gospel into their music. Their high-energy live performances showcase the band's strong musicianship and commanding stage presence. Their influences range from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, making for a fun and eclectic sound. With a voice that has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, Sowers' powerful vocals are not to be missed!

"Davina Sowers’ classically trained right fingers shimmy down the piano keys and meet up with an insistent boogie-woogie bass. Then she reveals her other musical talent: a sassy, salty, sweet voice that’s childlike at the top, husky at the bottom." - NPR's Marc Silver
