Doña Oxford is in Tooting at Brooks Blues Bar based at the Sound Lounge with her band and she really is that good.
Doña is a world class soul and blues singer in the mould of greats like Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and Tina Turner. She also happens to be one of the most respected female rock and roll piano players in the music industry, with over two million YouTube hits to her name for her famed “Boogie Woogie” showstopper.
Doña grew up in New York and honed her talent in East Coast clubs before moving to
Chicago and eventually Los Angeles where she blossomed as a live performer, songwriter and sought-after session musician. Her musical C.V. includes sessions with Van Morrison, Roger Daltrey and Ginger Baker and live performances with The Band’s Levon Helm, Buddy Guy, The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, Andy Fairweather Low and none other than Keith Richards who was so impressed with her keyboard skills he shouted “You’re a bitch!” as they jammed on stage.
After a well-received tour in 2015 as keyboard player and vocalist with Grammy winning guitarist Albert Lee, Doña decided to take her own British band on a tour of Europe. She made two highly successful tours in 2016, winning fans all over Britain, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany. The tours culminated in her latest album, the critically acclaimed “Live..and Loud!!” – produced by Jim Williams.
2017 sees Doña embark on a more extensive tour this spring, followed by festivals, club shows and theatre dates in the summer and autumn.
“I’m so excited to bring my tour to the Sound Lounge – the new home of Brooks Blues Bar”, says Dona. “I make sure my concerts always have a great party atmosphere. I’m a passionate fan of blues and soul and I try to put that across in my shows. I love to get people up on the dance floor!”
