Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get one ticket to see Davina & The Vagabonds on Sunday, March 27 at 5 p.m. at Alliance for the Arts' Alliance Margaret Morrow Frizzell open-air amphitheater in Fort Myers (a $15 value).
Performing for the Bruce T. Gora Sunday Sunset concert series, Davina and the Vagabonds will musically dish out passionate compositions brimming with jazz, soul, and rock influences led by the expressive voice of lead singer Davina “Dottie” Sowers. Turn your ears to the bittersweet pitch of a bluesey love song or the dynamic wails of a high-powered jazz tune. Finalists in the 2010 international songwriting competition, this energetic quintet has performed alongside artists Aaron Neville and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. On stage, members tickle piano keys, blast brass horns, and pluck stand-up bass strings to release the sonic djinn trapped inside and grant audiences three wishes, as long as those wishes are for more lively melodies to move their feet. Gates open for the concert at 4 p.m.
