WELCOME!!!

"Blessings to everyone during these difficult times! I was due to make my debut at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago on Friday, June 19th backed by one of Chicago's own, The Corey Dennison Band , and sadly my milestone show was cancelled due to this horrible pandemic. I was recently at Legends this past January sitting in with Netherlands Guitarist/Singer, Billy TK Jr. that opened up for Buddy Guy’s last residency show, and will get rescheduled as soon as things open up. On Xmas, I'll be releasing my 2016 EP of Blues-Rock Originals "Queen Bee" for worldwide online digital distribution that was recorded at Greaseland Studios in San Jose, CA, and is currently available for digital download through my website.

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 Rock and Blues icons, Janis Joplin's and Koko Taylor. A great 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 dynamic song list to fit your needs. Otilia Donaire Band - a top notch Rock and Blues outfit. You can find Otilia and her band packing dance floors all across Northern California and beyond.

    Fantastic! So much fun!!! Otilia is a very engaging singer and knows how to "rock" it. Everyone in our party was out on the dance floor. With a great catalog of music, she even welcomed requests. Her music was the icing on my 50th birthday cake.

    Otilia most recently played for my Birthday Party & what a blast we had! She and her fabulous band had the dance floor full the whole time. She has played several times for us at our Yacht Club since 2010 and is always a BIG hit! What a talent! You will be delighted to have her at any gathering!

    I book Otilia and her band every season since 2014 because she consistently delivers a fun, interactive and high-energy show that keeps people entertained and on the dance floor. She has an amazing rapport with her audience drawing them in with her soulful and powerful vocals and dynamic, on-stage personality. I highly recommend her and her band!

    Otilia is a force of nature – very talented, high energy and great at getting an audience up and on their feet. And she’s surrounded herself with a first rate group of musicians. She and the boys venture up to our Blue Wing Monday Blues nights in Lake County a couple of times a year and it’s always a treat when they come to town.
