"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


Cocktail Show w/$20 food voucher* + hats, horns and a glass of bubbly for the midnight toast!

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.

Menu includes favorites from the Dakota’s regular menu plus special New Year’s Eve a la carte options.
