She has recorded with John Boutté, Soul Asylum, the Misfits, New Orleans Nightcrawlers, Dukes of Dixieland, Lil’ Band of Gold, Marc Stone, Harry Shearer and more. Davis sings and plays the ukulele with the Mesmerizers. Rounding out the band are Alex McMurray (guitar), Josh Paxton (piano) and Matt Perrine (sousaphone).
