As part of the annual Music Fest NW this season, the powerful double bill of soul man Charles Bradley and funky bluesman Shuggie Otis will be appearing at The Crystal Ballroom on Saturday, September 7th.Charles Bradley is a soulful R&B crooner and formerly a James Brown impersonator whose career is skyrocketing following a brilliant performance at SXSW in Austin. He has led a rough life as chronicled in the film Soul Of America, but he knows how to capture an audience with his dynamic stage appeal.
Shuggie Otis is the guitar playing son of R&B legendary band leader Johnny Otis and has been an innovative musician in his own right exploring new blends of blues and funky stylings. He was first given a guitar at the age of two and was already performing with his father’s band by the time he was twelve. Over his career he has released a handful of outstanding recordings and has worked with people ranging from Bobby Bland, Etta James and Frank Zappa.
