The Hi-Jivers to Perform in Cayuga Museum's Carriage House Theater

Jun 09th, 2023

On Sunday, June 18 from 7-9 PM, come to the Cayuga Museum of History and Art’s Carriage House Theater as they welcome The Hi-Jivers back to Auburn.


The Hi-Jivers are a 4 piece Rock n' Roll/Rhythm and Blues band that play music inspired by the 50's and 60's but modernize with their passionate and wild originals.

The vocalist, Dawna Zahn is a powerhouse soulful singer who has the dynamic ability to resurrect her favorite blues artists like Howlin' Wolf and Big Mama Thornton with ease. She is accompanied by her husband, Austin John whose guitar arsenal has the maturity of a well seasoned blues guitarist, but with the sting of an explosive rock n' roller. They've already had the pleasure of performing all over the world including many cities in the U.S. and many countries in Europe.

The band won an Ameripolitan Music Award in 2023 and have been featured in Vintage Guitar Magazine and Blue Suede News magazine. They've been compared to modern artists such as JD McPherson, Nikki Hill, GA-20, Imelda May, Delta Bombers, Big Sandy & Fly-Rite Boys etc.

The show will open with Folk and Delta Blues musician Raedwald Howland-Bolton.

Admission is $20 per person. Presale admission may be purchased at the museum (cash only) or online at (fees will apply). The presale will end on Friday, June 16, with admission available for purchase at the door of the performance. The Carriage House Theater is located at 203 Genesee St. (rear) in Auburn. Parking is available in the lot adjacent to the theater and on Genesee St.
