I have cancelled and rescheduled my shows until December due to the recent loss of my boyfriend, Rich Armstong. He was a magnificent San Francisco Bay Area musician that is highly respected and admired for his amazing talent and body of work. My heartfelt condolences to the Armstrong family, his friends, fans and musical family. He touched many lives with his music and his music will live on in our hearts.
The show must go, as he would have wanted. I'm moving forward, and excited to be back in the studio in December to start recording my second CD of Blues-Rock Originals to be released by the Spring of 2023. This CD will include remastered originals from my EP, The Queen Bee adding a big band sound with full horns and keys, including new originals and covers. Thank you all for your continued support! Wishing you all love, light and music to feed your soul!" - Otilia
If you want people out on your dance floor, Otilia Donaire is going to put them there. A staple in the Bay area music scene Otilia has been tantalizing Bay Area audiences with her infectious energy, and powerful, sexy, and gritty vocal style reminiscent of famous Blues and Rock icons, Koko Taylor and Janis Joplin. A dynamic front person that will engage every audience, Otilia sings with raw depth and emotion having the adaptability, and versatility to equally transition from a power-driven rock song to a sultry, blues ballad, making her a crowd favorite. Booking a show of strictly Blues or a combo of R&B and Classic Rock, she will custom tailor a show with a versatile repertoire to fit your needs. Otilia Donaire Band - a top notch Blues and Rock outfit. You can find Otilia and her band packing dance floors all across Northern California and beyond.
