The big hit of the 2014 SummerTyne Festival, jazz & blues quintet Davina Sowers and The Vagabonds (from Dakota USA) have created a stir on the national blues scene with their high-energy live shows, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Sowers’ commanding stage presence.
With influences like Fats Domino, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Aretha Franklin, Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse their shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages.
The group’s focused sound and emphasis on acoustic instruments is novel to both blues and jazz worlds, and sets the show closer to New Orleans than to Chicago. A great way to end the festival with dancing definitely encouraged!
