R&B Guitar Legend Shuggie Otis Hits The Road For An Extended Summer Tour!

After the recent release of his first-ever live album, Live In
Williamsburg
(available on CD, vinyl and DVD), R&B legend Shuggie Otis
is once again bringing his talents to the stage for a 20+ date, coast-to-coast
tour starting July 5th. Nobody brings as much soul, style, and swagger to a live
performance as Shug with his signature red Gibson SG, and fans who have followed
this multi-talented performer’s tumultuous career know that a Shuggie Otis
concert is not an event to be missed. Whether it be the fabulous grooves of
“Inspiration Information” or the funkdafied rhythm of the all-time classic
“Strawberry Letter 23,” Shuggie’s songs have a magical sway over audiences, both
young and old, guaranteed to get them on their feet and dancing in the aisles!

The
son of renowned bandleader and musician Johnny Otis, Shuggie Otis began his
incredible career at the tender age of 15, playing as a session guitarist
alongside Al Kooper before releasing his first solo album Here Comes Shuggie
Otis
in 1970. Already being hailed as a uniquely skillful guitarist, Shuggie
proved his mettle as a songwriter the following year with the hit single
“Strawberry Letter 23” from his second solo album. Now one of the most sampled
songs in all of modern music, “Strawberry Letter 23” became an even bigger smash
when The Brothers Johnson recorded their version in 1977 (produced by Quincy
Jones). 

After the release of his third album Inspiration Information
failed to meet outsized expectations, Shuggie seemed to retire permanently from
music. But, thankfully, he reemerged in 2013 with a deluxe reissue of
Inspiration Information that included a new album of previously
unreleased recordings called Wings Of Love. Since then, Shuggie has
returned to the stage and been re-embraced by an adoring public who have waited
a long time and never lost faith!
