Australian Premiere | Adelaide Exclusive | USA

In an Australian first, Davina and The Vagabonds bring their New Orleans charm and Memphis soul swagger to our shores with a World Premiere that is so much more than a blues act. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, they draw on the last 100 years of American music and are converting audiences one show at a time.  

Davina has been compared to the likes of Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billy Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice. Her voice and stage presence defy categorisation in a truly original way. 

Come and see Davina and The Vagabonds create something completely their own, that is both timeless and honest in equal measure. With shades of dark theatrical moments and tender gospel passages, they will deliver a performance packed with energy and emotion from start to finish.

She purrs and growls, whispers and wails. Sweet and seductive one moment, she’s in your face the next, and then she makes you laugh. MinnPost
