Happy New year!
As 2019 approaches, I'd like to thank the amazing people I sing with and for, whose support and belief in music as an art form, a way of life and a tool to transform, allows me to work and live an incredibly charmed life and raise a family in one of America's few truly unique cities. Everyone who buys a cd, comes to a show, puts a $20 in the tip jar, hosts a house concert, opens their home or simply believes in me enough to let me make music for them, I am awed by your generosity and am in your debt.
I wish for all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019 where kindness, justice and music prevail over all other things. In that spirit, I offer a song to finish this year and begin the next. Until we meet again...
"Debbie Davis is generally recognized as possessing one of the most beautiful voices in a city filled with talented singers. Her warm, full voice illuminates the nooks and crannies of these songs with an emotional resonance that reminds listeners of such mistresses of restrained passion as Astrud Gilberto and Betty Carter. She’s also capable of letting that big voice carry her into mainstream pop territory, where her saucy delivery is more reminiscent of numerous big band vocalists and the great Cass Elliot. Every gesture is priceless."

Paul Sanchez and the Rolling Road Show
Excited and honored to perform with Paul Sanchez and his cavalcade of musical delights.
The holidays are finally here and, as always, we're hitting the ground running with lots of festive musical fun. Zoolights, Audubon Zoo's holiday celebration series kicks off the season and the Jingle Belles will be there for the big reveal as well as every Saturday evening thru the end of the year. Come join us and get your twinkle on.
As we move through the dog days of summer, thoughts of cooler days and happy times carry us through.
In October, Debbie and Josh hit the road again for a series of private and public shows in tried-and-true venues plus a few new ones! Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland, Kentucky and Ohio await. Mark your calendars and come get yourself some jazz-nerd fun.
In December Oh Crap, It's Christmas! returns to Cafe Istanbul on Sunday, Dec. 16 at 7pm for another one-night-only show filled to the brim with holiday cheer, seasonal silliness and all things merry and bright. This year's list of special guests includes Beth Patterson and Josh Paxton, The Jingle Belles, and Johnny Sketch and the Bandicoot Four! Tickets go on sale HERE on November 16th.
*The dog days of summer are here in New Orleans but, while the people slow down, the music never stops. You can see Debbie and Josh Paxton every Thursday and Friday at the Four Points Sheraton at the corner of Bourbon and Toulouse streets in the heart of the French Quarter. The drinks are reasonable, the food is delicious, and the air conditioning is abundant. Discounted valet parking ($5 with your bar tab of $25 or more) is the icing on the cake.
**In October, Debbie and Josh set out to the mid-atlantic and mid-west for a 10 day run of dates. Thanks to all the folks who have provided venues, beds, meals and people to play for. Check out the dates and mark your calendars.
