Listening to Davina & the Vagabonds (DATV) is like stepping into a musical time machine. Led by the incomparable Davina Sowers, whose voice and stage presence defy category,DATV’s influences range from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits. The rollicking quintet’s panache and superlative musicianship recreate the timeless appeal of golden age Americana, bringing edgy nostalgia to older generations and fresh new music to young ears.
