Squirrel Nut Zippers celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Hot, with their unique musical flavor - Delta blues, Gypsy jazz, ‘30s swing & more. SNZ has crafted a brand-new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the band’s unique musical flavor which owes its roots to that city. Davina & The Vagabonds have created a stir on the national music scene with their high‐energy live shows, level A musicianship, sharp-dressed professionalism and Sowers’ commanding stage presence.
The Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album Hot was originally released in the summer of 1996, and was the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable. By this time the group had already established a substantial live following across the country thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and noncommercial stations. Hot wound up selling over 1.3 million copies. It was about 20 years ago when NPR’s Morning Edition said, “It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”
