Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds & The Squirrel Nut Zippers

The McCallum Theatre presents Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds & The Squirrel Nut Zippers. Two bands that are Hot, Hot, Hot! Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds have created a stir on the national music scene with their high-energy live shows. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is closer to New Orleans than to Chicago. The Squirrel Nut Zippers are celebrating 25 years of making music that’s a fusion of Delta Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Swing Revival.  NPR’s Morning Edition said: “It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”
