Research Park Events

Davina and the Vagabonds will be kicking off the OUTSIDE Concert Series at Research Park. Not merely a superb throwback to those smoky-voiced club singers who beguiled their way into the hearts of New Orleans night owls in the 1920s, Davina Sowers exerts theatrical power suited to a Broadway stage and keyboard skills that dazzle. Her tight, spare band—trumpet, trombone, drums, and upright bass plus her piano and ukulele—brings sass and rocketing energy from the Deep South with an intensity from Chicago-style blues. Upshot will be opening at 6:30, followed by Davina and the Vagabonds at 7:30.
