Debbie Davis & Josh Paxton with Opal Fly & KAPOW!

06:00 pm
The Players Pub
http://www.theplayerspub.com

Debbie Davis stands out in the crowd of vocalists like a bird-of-paradise in a roomful of parakeets. Her voice is a magnificent, near-operatic instrument and her theatrical instincts are the stuff of Broadway musical-level performance. When she takes the stage at Three Muses or d.b.a., one hand cocked saucily on her waist, the other brandishing a cocktail glass, she holds court with the authority of a Peggy Lee. Her resonant, brassy voice immediately grabs the listener but she sustains that attention through the sheer force of her personality. Davis has been working in a supporting role for years as part of the Pfister Sisters, Paul Sanchez’s Rolling Road Show, Tom McDermott, and the cast of Nine Lives, but she is just coming into her own as a headline attraction. Specializing in New Orleans style piano, world class pianist Josh Paxton has been a fixture on the New Orleans music scene for the past ten years, performing as a solo artist, group leader, and sideman with many of the Crescent City’s top names. His diverse musical background ranges from avant-garde jazz to stints with major label rock bands. Currently, he is focusing on his unique approach to New Orleans Rhythm and Blues piano style.
