Biography

Davis and Dow

Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter. If these names mean nothing to you, then you are missing out on a supremely important part of our history, culture, and heritage. Davis and Dow can help you introduce a new generation to this beautiful American art form called Jazz.

Julie (phenomenal vocalist) and Kelly (world class guitarist) present a show called “Great Jazz Divas.” It is a culturally educational and immensely entertaining musical show about these wonderful ladies of jazz; their lives and music. In addition to the fabulous live music, you will hear actual interviews with the writers, musicians, and the legendary ladies themselves. It’s like meeting and singing along with history.

Finalist for APCA “Best Performing Artist” 2004 and 2005, Davis and Dow are perfect for Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Jazz Appreciation Month or any time that you want great entertainment combined with a wonderful educational opportunity.
