“Davina Sowers creates her own Americana mishmash — a little Amy Winehouse-worthy neo-soul there, a little Great American Songbook-influenced songcraft there…”
– Rolling Stone

“Welcome Back to the Dakota” Residency


Davina and The Vagabonds offer “a modern take on old-time blues and jazz” (PennLive). They’ve created a stir on the national music scene with their high-energy live shows, level A musicianship, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Davina’s commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time.

Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band’s sound is infectious – a concoction of blues, 70s funk, rock and roll, and good-ole zydeco flavor. Once the accordion-playing Grammy-winning virtuoso grabs the mic and takes to the stage with his bandmates, audiences are treated to high energy, swamp funky zydeco show drenched in Louisiana style. Presented in collaboration with the Twin Cities Jazz Festival & AARP.

Due to the constraints of the reopening process, phone and in-person sales are unavailable at this time. ONLINE SALES ONLY. If you require phone assistance, please email boxoffice@dakotacooks.com and we’ll schedule a time for a call. Apologies for any inconvenience.
