Based out of Missoula Montana, no one gets the dance floor thumpin' and your blood pumpin' like these gals! With a wink, a smile, and a dash of glitter and glam, we are The Cigarette Girls Burlesque.
Davina and the Vagabonds return
Wednesday, Aug. 29, 8 p.m., Pub Station Ballroom. Tickets for the all-ages show are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Reserved tables for four are $210.
Davina and the Vagabonds have created a stir on the national music scene with their high-energy live shows, level of musicianship, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Davina Sowers’ commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time, from Vancouver to Miami and across Europe. In 2011 Davina released her first full length, all original album “Black Cloud.” It was named one of the 10 best releases of the year by the Minneapolis Star & Tribune and awarded 4 ½ stars from Downbeat Magazine. Their next release in 2014, “Sunshine,” hit number 13 in the Billboard Blues Chart.
Sowers has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice: Sowers is a true original.
