The NEW Southern Rock Sensation from Kentucky, "OTIS" is back from Europe and LIVE at John Brown's on the Square!

Deep in South Central Kentucky, authentic music is alive and well through native musicians who are still testifying to brothers and sisters all around the world. Otis has taken in a steady diet of Roots, Blues, Classic Rock and Roll, and created their own unique sound. 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.

You've seen him on Last Comic Standing, he's opened for Rodney Carrington, he's been on Star Search... and he's coming to Southern Illinois!

Tim is 6'3", 200 pounds of manly man with what is often described as an obscure sense of humor. He is articulate, smart and deceptively witty, but most importantly he's funny. The combination of his gruff exterior and his easy on the ears style could be catastrophic, but this mixture works well. His opening line 'I love y'all' leaves audiences wondering what's next. They soon realize he's sincere.

Join us for LIVE stand up comedy- the perfect date night or night out with friends! Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
