With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, Davina and The Vagabond’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments, and tender gospel passages.
This rollicking quintet has played festivals from Ontario to Romania, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, and more. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, and Betty Boop, but she is a true original!
“…easily among the breakout stars at this year’s [Monterey Jazz] festival.” – Monterey Herald
