Few women play wicked harp, have strong vocals, play rhythm guitar and engage an audience with a high energy tight performance.
The Octavia Blues Band shows consist of covers and originals depending on venue needs.
Currently working on my 6th album. OctaviaBlues
Octavia is a Suzuki Music USA and Godin Guitars endorsee.
Currently seeking a committed lead guitarist who sings background vocals at the least.
Having performed 140 shows in 2014 We are currently booking our 2015 schedule. My band has quality musicians and our shows are always fun.
I am putting together another band... All woman. Seeking a pocket funky singing bass player.
