Fresh from Monterey Jazz Fest

Davina and the Vagabonds return to THELMA

montereyTo box Davina and the Vagabonds into one style of music – blues, Gospel or soul – would be a disservice to this truly original band.

Lead by the unforgettable Davina Sowers on vocals, her voice and stage presence defy any category. She has been compared to Etta James, Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse but she is simply, Davina.

Davina and the Vagabonds return to Fond du Lac to play for the first time in the newly expanded and redesigned Great Hall at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts, (THELMA) Saturday, February 15. Davina and the Vagabonds played at the Elk’s Lodge, next door to THELMA, last spring because THELMA was closed for construction. Soon after that show, she was booked at the Monterey Jazz Festival, one of the longest running and most prestigious music celebrations.

The concert begins at 8 pm with the bar opening at 7 pm. Tickets are $30 and a table for four is $150. THELMA members receive 20% off. Tickets are available at thelmaarts.org.

In a partnership with Trinity Restaurant, concert goers can have a special Valentine’s Dinner at Trinity and not miss any part of the show. The cost is $50 per person and includes a bottle of wine, steak or lobster, soup or salad and two desserts. This Dinner and A Show package can be purchased at THELMA or Trinity.

THELMA is located at 51 Sheboygan St., in the heart of Downtown Fond du Lac’s Arts and Entertainment District.

Violent Femmes founder to play THELMA

A Cello built in 1913 and processed through today’s looping technology creates a live orchestra of strings framed by two drummers, including Violent Femmes founding member Victor DeLorenzo. The result is the unique chamber rock trio from Milwaukee known as Nineteen Thirteen.

Nineteen Thirteen will perform at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) Friday, February 28 in the newly expanded and redesigned Great Hall.

A mix of old and new technology, cellist Janet Schiff, Scott Johnson on drums, and world-renowned DeLorenzo create an individual and unique sound.

DeLorenzo spoke about his transition from the Violent Femmes to the chamber rock trio of Nineteen Thirteen.

“The music I played with Violent Femmes prepared me to contribute in almost any type of situation that I may find myself in via music, acting or life,” he said. “The Fems grew up together, and the Fems grew apart together. We made history. The music of Nineteen Thirteen is about beauty, melody, style and grace. Our three individual styles of playing compliment the magic that is the soulful sound of cello and drums lovingly played together. Nineteen Thirteen makes me swing,” DeLorenzo said.

The concert begins at 8 pm with the bar opening at 7 pm. Tickets are $30 and a table for four is $150. THELMA members receive 20% off. Tickets are available at thelmaarts.org.
