Davina & The Vagabonds
Special Live Stream Event

Since exploding onto the scene in 2005, Davina & The Vagabonds have grown from a down-and-dirty blues band into one of the most exciting acoustic ensembles on the international stage. This high-energy quintet has established itself with a stellar live show, a professional look, and good old-fashioned hard work.

With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band draws from the last 100 years of American music and is converting audiences one show at a time. As you'll see and hear in this special live stream concert event, DATV’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Davina’s voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice. Davina is a true original.

This unedited performance will be broadcast LIVE from Musical Instrument Museum on May 30, 2019, at 7:30pm PDT in Phoenix, AZ.

NEW! Brian Bromberg’s
Big Bombastic Band
Festival of Arts

Considered to be one of the world’s most ground-breaking and diverse bassists of our time, Brian Bromberg is pushing the barriers of the acoustic and electric bass to their limits. Commonly using as many as 10 or more basses on his recordings, using different tunings, string configurations, acoustic basses, electric basses, piccolo basses, etc., Bromberg has taken the bass and truly turned it into a vehicle for him to make music, write melodies, and be the lead melodic voice--as well as the rhythmic foundation--of the music. The bass has become an extension of the music inside him, and he has used all of these different basses to let that music sing.

In this presentation, Bromberg and his band perform songs from his most recent CD Thicker than Water, plus selections from earlier recordings including Earth, Wind, and Fire's "September" and Chicago's "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" His stellar rhythm section features Tom Zink (piano), Tony Moore (drums), and Ray Fuller (guitar).

This performance was originally recorded live on July 21, 2018, at Festival of Arts in
Laguna Beach, CA.

Melissa Manchester
Special Live Stream Event

More than 25 years after Melissa Manchester released Tribute, her 1989 album that honored the great female singers who influenced her, she turns the tables with The Fellas, a radiant encomium to the men, including Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett, and Dean Martin, and the iconic songs they made famous.

Singing with a verve and emotional vulnerability that immediately captivates, the Grammy-winner inventively re-imagines these beloved standards, which you'll witness in this special live stream concert event. She turns “Chances Are” into a sly bossa nova and scats with seemingly impossible ease on “Love Is Just Around the Corner,” while bringing an understated urgency to “Night and Day.”

Like many of the men she salutes on The Fellas, Manchester’s career is remarkable not only for its longevity and accomplishments, but for its versatility. Following her time as a founding member of Bette Midler’s backing singers and dancers, the Harlettes, Manchester’s tremendously successful solo career brought her critical and commercial acclaim. Since her debut release Home To Myself in 1973, Manchester has launched a string of chart-toppers including “Midnight Blue,” “Don't Cry Out Loud”, and “Through The Eyes Of Love (Theme from Ice Castles)".

This unedited performance will be broadcast LIVE from Musical Instrument Museum on June 22, 2019, at 6:00pm PDT in Phoenix, AZ

Jane Monheit
Special Live Stream Event

Blessed with “a voice of phenomenal beauty” (Stephen Holden, New York Times), Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians.

With her new album, The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald—the first to be released on her own Emerald City Records—the Long Island native has surprised even herself with her artistic leap. Fitzgerald’s beloved songbook albums held “Biblical” importance for her when she was growing up and have never lost their hold on her.

Monheit pays joyous tribute to Ella while sharing a definitive portrait of herself, guided by her producer, arranger, and trumpet great, Nicholas Payton. “This record is really different,” she adds. “It’s the first I’ve made a recording without a label and so I was able to make all the decisions myself. Honestly, when I listened back to the takes, I heard a different singer than I’ve heard before—a more mature one...These were the vocals of a 38-year-old woman with a lot of life experience. These tracks really express who I am.”

Jane’s gorgeous upward swoop is pure Ella, her earthy wordless phrases pure Sarah, but this album is a classic example of a singer leading her influences rather than being led by them. You don't want to miss this special live stream concert event!

This unedited performance will be broadcast LIVE from Musical Instrument Museum on July 12, 2019, at 7:30pm PDT in Phoenix, AZ.
