Davina and The Vagabonds in Champaign

June 18, 2013

Based in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Davina and the Vagabonds claim as influences Fats Domino, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits. While they bill themselves primarily as a blues band, their music can also sound a little bit New Orleans, a little bit Memphis and a little bit gospel. Davina and the Vagabonds will play shows in Champaign Tuesday and Wednesday, and they’ll play for us live on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.”
