DONA OXFORD is known as the “Goddess of Soul, Queen of Boogie Woogie”. Currently, taking a break from touring with the legendary Albert Lee, she is embarking on a UK tour with her own band, kicking off at The Eel Pie Club, Twickenham on Thursday 4 May.
US born-and-raised . Dona has worked as a singer/pianist with some of the world’s finest musicians, including Keith Richards, Van Morrison, Buddy Guy, Levon Helm, Lonnie Brooks, Shirley Dixon and her idol, former Chuck Berry sideman and father of rock & roll piano, Johnnie Johnson. Now based in LA, California, Dona has produced five albums under her own name, the most recent of which, “Soul Quest”, was received with considerable critical acclaim.
Dona is a high-energy performer with a powerful delivery and stunning piano technique. She imbues every song, from ballad to rip roaring classic, with a unique style and delivery. Her show is a mixture of “Roots”, R&B, Soul and some of the most remarkable Boogie Woogie piano playing you are ever likely to see! A rare chance to see this terrific performer with her own band that also features James Beck on guitar & vocals, Ben Graham on bass & vocals, Jim Williams on percussion & vocals and Mikey Ciancio on drums.
