Debbie Davies Band

Event Date: 
Saturday, August 17, 2013 - 8:00pm

Having gotten her break with a supporting role in Albert Collins’ Icebreakers, Debbie has gone on to be one of the most outstanding guitarists in the blues world. In 1997 and again in 2010 she received the W.C. Handy Award for “Best Contemporary Female Blues Artist”.

Since 1993, Debbie has produced eleven solo recordings and two collaborative CD’s. The roster of other artists who have joined Debbie in the studio on her recordings reads like a who’s who of the blues: Albert Collins, Ike Turner, James Cotton, Mick Taylor, Peter Green, Coco Montoya,  Chris “Whipper” Layton, Sugar Ray Norcia, Mudcat Ward, Charlie Musselwhite, Bruce Katz, Per Hanson, Noel Neal, and Rod Carey.

In 2009, Debbie Davies released the ground-breaking and acclaimed all instrumental CD, "Holdin' Court," on Vizz Tone Records. Her new CD, "After the Fall," features songs written by Debbie's long time drummer Don Castagno and a guest appearance by pianist Bruce Katz. A thirty-year veteran of the road, this latest recording leaves no doubt that Debbie Davies is truly one of the leading lights on the contemporary blues music scene today.

"She wields an electric guitar as if it were a wand." – LA Times

“She pulls out all the stops. She can play it all: seductive, soulful material, down-home Delta blues or humorous tales of life on the road.”- Blues Revue

Debbie plays from the heart and her heart has a lot to say. She inspires me. - Charlie Musselwhite

I don't often give endorsements or references, but once in a rare while I hear a musician of such talent that I want people to know. I believe my reputation backs up my ability to recognize exceptional blues guitarists. Such a one is Debbie Davies. - John Mayall
