He further honed his skills when drafted as a sideman for the likes of Johnny Adams, Earl King and Snooks Eaglin and found himself playing long, late night gigs in the clubs of New Orleans and the road shacks of country towns in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. He is acknowledged as a leading practitioner of New Orleans style piano. He has been a sideman for the likes of Taj Mahal, Dr John, John Scofield and had a long association with Bonnie Raitt who described him as 'the ninth wonder of the world'.

Performance Series: Davina and the Vagabonds
Saturday, March 19, 2016, 8:00 PM
Hooligan's
Madison East Center
1400 East Madison Avenue, Mankato, MN
507-625-9904
$15.00 in advance (advance sales end on Friday, March 18 at 12:00 noon) $18.00 day of show

MUSIC STARTS AT 8:00 PM. DAVINA WILL PLAY TWO SETS.

Reserved seating is not an option for this concert.
Davina and the Vagabonds are known for their hard-working professionalism, high-energy stage performance, and original sound. Two things remain consistent in all her shows: her throaty, but cushiony voice, part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse, and her band's rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou thick standup bass.

NOTE: ADVANCE SALES END ON FRIDAY, MARCH 18 AT 12:00 NOON. TICKETS ARE $18 AFTER THIS TIME AND DATE.

DISREGARD THE STATEMENT THAT FOLLOWS.
