Otis draws from the raw electric sounds of Muddy Waters and stirs in a heavy influence of Southern sounds, courtesy of The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie, and more. This sums up what the sound of Otis is musically and gives a glimpse into the sound and soul of the four-piece band.

What we AREN'T, impersonators or a band cashing in on a tragic loss. So you won't see someone who looks like or acts like TPHB. What we guarantee you'll hear are his greatest songs performed as closely to the original releases as possible WITHOUT the aid of supplemental computer tracks in a live, high energy setting.

The Petty Junkies band is made up of professional musicians and artists who have been very successful in their own right. Well over 300 hit songs have been penned, played on, sung, or produced by the members of this band.
