Davina & The Vagabonds

When: Thu., March 30, 7:30 p.m. 2017

There’s a certain kind of effortless cool that you can’t fake, and Minnesota’s Davina and the Vagabonds have it. The jazz traditionalists play as many gems from the Great American Songbook as they do original compositions, though you may be hard-pressed to determine which songs are new and which are the standards. The band’s 2016 album Nicollet and Tenth features fire-and-brimstone covers of “Ain’t That a Shame” and “I Would Rather Go Blind,” both of which are brought to life by singer Davina Sowers, whose voice is, like the rest of her band, simultaneously classic and contemporary.
