Together Karen and Ken are 'Toucan' (duet Better than one) & put on a very professional night's entertainment, not only with their presentation but also with the delivery of their songs which are well rehearsed with close harmonies, which only comes together with hours of practice. It is this that makes them a ‘hit’ everywhere they play. Their repertoire includes a night of 'Irish' or 'Rockn' Roll Paradise' or 'A Country Hoedown' or '70's + Pub Rock' 'Blue Diamonds' (Blues and light Jazz) and more!!
Recently, they put together a very successful 2hr show Called 'STARS' With Barbie Davidson & Anna Fisher. This fabulous show includes lots of fun, comedy and laughter.
'The Karen Davy Band' has performed at the Bay of Islands Country Rock Festival for many years bringing with her some of the finest musicians in the music field. She has several CD's which will be available at the festival.
