#213 – Davina & the Vagabonds – Sunshine

Davina & the Vagabonds inject a fresh approach to a very classic style of music, a mix of blues & New Orleans-style jazz.  The Minneapolis band has just released a brand new record called Sunshine (read our review) , and we mean record, it is available on vinyl as well as CD & mp3.  We talk with leader Davina Sowers about her love of vintage music and how it gets infused in her songs.  She also tells us how Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups influenced the song “I Try to Be Good,” and how everyone, even Britney Spears, should cover a Fats Waller song.
