The year 2012 was a memorable one for the live performance studios of 88.1 KDHX. We hosted over 170 national and local bands, all of whom gave us their very best.
From the first notes of Davina and the Vagabonds' debut album, "Black Cloud," the listener can feel something special boiling in this five-piece band's veins.
Davina Sowers is known as the "hardest working blues woman" in Minneapolis. You might say the same for the whole band, Davina and the Vagabonds, who've become a staple on the blues festival circuit and a favorite in St. Louis.
Original, complex and filled with soul, Davina and the Vagabonds are what one could only hope to hear upon entering a smoke filled jazz club in the heart of New Orleans. But their Dixieland sound comes straight out of the Twin Cities, making for a rousing live session.
