Arturo Otamendi


I am originally from Venezuela but grew in New Orleans. I’m a veterinary neurologist and neurosurgeon in my regular life. I joined the band because I wanted to return to playing the trombone after a several year hiatus and I wanted to do this with a group that was welcoming, open, and diverse.

My favorite band memory is performing in the Women’s march in both Oakland and San Francisco.
