Edinburgh was magical.
New Mexico was magnetic.
New songs being molded.


We did our fourth year at the Edinburgh Jazz & Festival – Second year being their Artist in Residency. Each year we get to explore more of the city and fall deeper in love. We spent 10 back to back days playing to appreciative audiences in these amazing hand built Spiegeltents, filled with velvet, mirrors, stain glass windows and devoted festival volunteers, spot on front and back of house families. It is bittersweet when we leave, but we are excited announce that we were invited back for next year’s festivities. More Haggis – Irn-Bru & clotted cream and scones for this girl!


After our last night we flew straight to New Mexico. The Vagabonds and I had the opportunity to play the center square Santa Fe Bandstand again. Santa Fe is one of those cities that are filled with artisans, self loving individualism, and immense history. Truly a city that separates itself from many other cities in the best way possible.


I’ve been slowly finding time to sit and put my thoughts and feelings into words and chords. I’ve had writers block for sometime, but lately it’s been a bit easier to mold my thoughts into stories. There will be more and more new songs being road tested and a new album is taking shape.


I hope to get to see, sing, and zap you with sparks of love.
You all mean the world to me.


There is a new buzzword going around the Twin Cities music scene &  among the greater world: Davina. Yes, Davina Sowers is becoming more & more of an icon in the making all the time. Her songwriting prowess joined with her enigmatic firebrand delivery fuel countless live shows & exuberant recordings. Davina forges a unique dreamy vintage soundscape that mostly defies description begging to be heard by any & all. The band lives for this, rejoicing in their well deserved rise to greater heights in popularity & talent.

Davina & the Vagabonds
Sat. December 31, 2016, 6pm & 10:30pm
The Dakota Jazz Club

6pm Dinner show (click for special NYE menu):

10:30pm Cocktail show (including party favors, food & drink):

Davina & the Vagabonds create a spirited excitable charm & feverish vibe when experienced by the audience. They are ever lively, spontaneous, unpredictable & always celebrating the moment until the next one comes along. This band celebrates history & subsequently makes history all at once. No easy feat by any means.   

DATV fabulously return to the Dakota for what is sure to be one of the very best top notch New Year’s Eve shows in the Twin Cities & beyond. As hometown fans, we couldn’t be more enthralled for this special night to vibrantly celebrate entering a new fresh year. 

To say Davina is going places would be an extreme understatement. The band keeps adding new countries & cities to the vastly growing list of places they’ve played. Hitting Europe every few months alone sets a wildly enthusiastic pace. Let’s just say: It’s ON! 

Knowing these musicians personally has very much enhanced my appreciation & heightened my perception as a fan, a friend & a music lover. This has me processing these blessings as unrivaled joy.

Ring in 2017 with the unstoppable DATV at your downtown living room The Dakota. The participatory fun ensues with 2 epic thrill ride shows. Early Dinner show @ 6pm & Cocktail show @ 10:30pm blasting into the new chapter of 2017. Minneapolis: Prepare for lift-off!
