Davis & Dow

It's now is less than a week that Davis and Dow will be returning by popular demand to the Church of the Nativity in Port St. Lucie. Please put Tuesday night, April 13th at 7:30 PM on your calendar. Julie Davis is a most creative jazz vocalist and Kelly Dow is a super guitarist. Kelly will even be bringing his Django Reinhart guitar for a couple special numbers to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Django's birth.

Multi award winning jazz duo Davis and Dow have chemistry. Soul mates that are two strong halves of one BIG sound. Davis and Dow tackle jazz and pop standards with a daring sense of abandon. Their style is deeply rooted in the classic jazz tradition but with a playfulness that keeps the music fresh and fun. Their arrangements are unique and inventive, always seeking a new approach to everything they do.

Recognized as one of the finest and most versatile jazz singers of her generation, Julie Davis is everything from scat-singer to balladeer. She grew up listening to the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald and others on her parents extensive vinyl collection. Singing jazz came natural to Julie from a young age. “A confident singer with a compelling stage presence who possesses a wry kittenish voice with claws”. “She is a stylist that seeks an original twist on everything she performs; a risk-taker who’s scatting suggests she learned in her bassinet”. Now she feels it is her turn to expose newer generations to a young American art form called jazz.

Kelly Dow is a world-class guitarist who’s primary influences are Joe Pass, Jimmy Bruno, Django Reinhardt and the modern day European gypsy jazz virtuosos. He blends Be-Bop, Blues, Flamenco and Classical styles to create a strong individual sound delivered with sensitivity, power, and creativity. “Simply orchestral in support”, “Swinging”, “Fat” “Multi-hued” and “Unexpected” are a few words that critics have used to describe his performance.

They’ve toured Japan, London, and New York, composed and performed original music for the TV show FoodNation with Bobby Flay, and produced Great Jazz Divas: a multimedia show that celebrates women, music, and history. D&D were voted Best Jazz Artists-New Times Magazine and Julie Davis was voted Best Jazz Vocalist-City Link Magazine. Recent performances include the 2007 Palm Beach Jazz Festival, a Penn State University tour, and they were awarded a juried showcase at the prestigious Performing Arts Exchange 2007 in Louisville, KY. Recently Davis and Dow won a two year grant by the Florida Cultural Arts Division to perform in underserved communities. “Davis and Dow are the real thing; exciting to hear and watch”.
