Shuggie Otis has always embodied the true spirit of Rock ‘n’ Roll. As the son of Johnny Otis, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-er, he grew up with Rock music in his blood, and has carved out his signature sound with elements of jazz and blues over the years. He has mastered his technique so well in fact, that after his Billboard chart topping hit”Strawberry Letter 23,” The Rolling Stones asked Otis to join the band as they set out for their World Tour in 1974. As enticing as this offer was, he did what few would do and declined, favoring his own success with his then newly-released album Inspiration Information in 1975.
After a few decades of laying low and raising his family, Shuggie has made a 2015 comeback, taking America’s Rock ‘n’ Roll scene by storm. You don’t want to miss this one, and we want to make it even easier to catch him live at the Hawthorne Theatre on August 30th!
