Davina & The Vagabonds and Hot Club of Cowtown – The Finest Hour
Address: 3926 Hwy. 42
Phone: (920) 868-2728
Since exploding onto the scene in 2005, Davina and the Vagabonds have grown from a down-and-dirty blues band into one of the most exciting acoustic ensembles on the international stage. DATV’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrics, and tender gospel. Hot Club of Cowtown have traveled the world since 1998, playing their original fusion of Django Reinhardt-style gypsy-jazz and Bob Wills-style hoedowns and Western swing. At DCA, these two bands will present “The Finest Hour,” a celebration of American music at the end of World War II, when European jazz, Western swing, blues, and pop energized dance halls and radio waves throughout the country, ushering in the optimism of a new era. Together, DATV and Hot Club of Cowtown will present the songs of Billie Holiday, Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Gene Autry, and more, conjuring the exquisite “Finest Hour” of American musical history.
