An energized Shuggie Otis impresses at The Blockley (photos, review, setlist) - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Shuggie Otis | Photo by Chris Sikich | countfeed.tumblr.comShuggie Otis brought his blazing guitar work and sleek R&B flavor to a packed Blockley last night. Weaving through 13 songs, Otis and his seven member backing band the Shuggie Otis Rite had the crowd under their spell for the nearly two hour set. Adorned with a fedora, scarf, and coat, the 59 year-young Otis showed off his guitar skills on his six-string Gibson, while the horns, percussion, bass, and keyboard of the Rite added the rich textures needed to bring such Otis classics as “Strawberry Letter 23”and “Inspiration Information” to life. Philly mainstay Mutlu also performed an opening set; see photos of both in the gallery below.
