Davina and The Vagabonds
Granville Island Jazz
With New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, and tender gospel passages, Davina and The Vagabonds synthesize 100 years of American music with original tunes full of edgy nostalgia and fresh new directions. With comparisons to the likes of Etta James, Amy Winehouse, and Billie Holiday, vocalist/pianist Davina has released two albums (Black Cloud, Sunshine) that swell with heart and swing. Ranging from the sounds of Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the quintet is rounded out by bassist Liz Draper, drummer George Marich, and the spicy horn section of Zack Lozier trumpet and Jacob Melsha trombone.
