Doña Oxford's This Is Soul!
Saturday 6th May 2017 Show Time 8pm, Doors Open 7pm
Cabaret Seating, Tickets £20.00
An evening of classic and contemporary Soul, Roots and Rhythm & Blues
Doña Oxford : direct from the U.S.A., the goddess of soul, blues and boogie-woogie with an awesome powerhouse voice in the spirit of Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin.
Winning fans everywhere with her high energy performances and electrifying stage presence, This Is Soul! - a brand new theatre show - sees Doña and her dynamic, young band take audiences on a musical journey spanning more than fifty years with classic hits from Stevie Wonder, the Stax and Motown catalogues, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Hall & Oates, Prince, Amy Winehouse and many more.
Doña is more qualified than most musicians to present this unique history of soul, roots and rhythm & blues. The New Yorker was mentored by rock and roll piano guru Johnnie Johnson. She's toured with guitar great Albert Lee, recorded with legends like Van Morrison, Levon Helm and Roger Daltrey and her outstanding keyboard skills prompted none other than Keith Richards to shout "you're a bitch!" as they jammed together on stage.
Doña has released six albums to date including a new live album "Live...And Loud!" released in December 2016. Her soundtrack work includes music for the films "Norbit", starring Eddie Murphy, "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" and "Senior Skip Day". She is also a regular guest of Spinal Tap legend and star of The Simpsons, Harry Shearer, for his celebrity special "Christmas Without Tears" tour of London, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and New Orleans.
Seeing Doña in concert is truly an unforgettable experience. Her show-stopping "Boogie Woogie" has already clocked up TWO MILLION YouTube hits !
