Roberta Donnay (B).

Award-winning and Grammy-nominated Roberta Donnay has toured the past ten years promoting her previous CDs Back Before The Why, Bohemian, and Soul Reverse, which earned her television and film credits including Nash Bridges, The Young & the Restless, Days of Our Lives, One Life to Live, That's Life, along with films, Close Encounters and Reservoirs of Strength. Donnay’s single, "Crack in the Sidewalk" was a hit on college and public radio, receiving rotation on 80 stations nationwide. Her song “One World” has been performed on five continents as a world peace anthem and was adopted for UN 50th anniversary celebration. Ms. Donnay's fiery style and engaging presence have landed her featured performances at the Monterey Jazz Festival, The Empire Plush Room, The Jacksonville Jazz Festival and other venues across the United States.

On Wednesday evening, June 7th, 2006 at 8:00pm, The Empire Plush Room and The Roberta Donnay Quartet featuring guest artist, Dave Ellis proudly present an evening of music and celebration featuring songs from Donnay’s new album, What’s Your Story. Donnay explains, “It has been a true delight working with legendary producer Orrin Keepnews. The caliber of performances brought to light in the sessions by Dave Ellis, Eric Reed, Gerald Cannon and Mark Taylor is what I absolutely love about singing jazz.”

~ Scott Yanow, jazz journalist
"Roberta Donnay is a bluesy, sensuous and swinging vocalist with a very inviting voice. On her debut jazz CD; she performs fresh versions of standards (often outfitted with new lyrics), blues and originals with both sass and sensitivity. She's impossible not to like.."

~ Tom Leopold, Arts & Entertainment
”A phosphorescent presence on the stage.”

~ Art Jefferson, SF Art Magazine
”Not only does she have one of the most powerful voices in music,
she also captures all eyes and ears.”
