AGMP Present Shuggie Otis

Wednesday 24th May 2017 - 7:00pm til 11:00pm

His Trippy R&B Jams are equal to Marvin Gaye’s and Curtis Mayfield’s, but somehow more contemporary sounding – closer to D’Angelo meets DJ Shadow‘ – David Byrne, Talking Heads.

Shuggie Otis was compared, at the age of 15, with Jimi Hendrix and the great Kings of blues guitar (B.B. King, Albert King). Shuggie went on to make two expansive, genre-defying, deeply curious albums, 1971’s ‘Freedom Flight‘ and 1974’s ‘Inspiration Information‘. The records, essentially crafted as a one-man band, floored Sly Stone, gave The Brothers Johnson their most enduring hit (‘Strawberry Letter 23′) and predated the stylistic synthesist Prince by half a decade.

Shuggie Otis, son of the rhythm and blues bandleader Johnny Otis, was a guitar prodigy, cutting sessions with Frank Zappa and Al Kooper whilst still a teenager. AGMP are proud to present the legendary Shuggie Otis in concert with his full USA band.

Entry price (public): £20.00 – Minimum age: 18
