Otis Redding III

Leading man in our artist agency is Otis Redding III, one of the sons of the legend Otis Redding II.

It happens very often when people in Europe hear of the name of Otis Redding III that they think he is a grandson of the famous singer and songwriter Otis Redding. This is not right; this misunderstanidng is caused by the fact that in Europe we are not used to First, Second, Third and so on. We use Senior an Junior when a son carries the same name as his father. so, when, like Otis Redding II, a man can be both Junior and Senior. Otis I was a referend; there was not much news about him.

Between us and Otis III there is a very special, close friendship since decades. This friendship goes above business, so it can lead us to very special things.

Otis Redding II crashed at a young age on December the 10th of 1967, but he left us a lot of unforgettable songs: (I've Got) Dreams To Remember, (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay, RESPECT, FaFaFaFaFa (Sad Song), Mr. Pitiful and many other songs.

A legacy Otis III enjoys to propagate. In the early eighties we heard for the first time of Otis III, as a member of The Reddings, together with brother Dexter and cousin Mark. Remote Control was a big hit, in Europe as well as in the USA. Nowadays, 2018, it is considered to be a dance-classic.

Otis III crosses over to Europe on a regular basis to perform at festivals, in clubs and corporate events. He can be guided by the English The All Star Super Soul Section or, after approval and consultation, the band that is present.

In 2018 a new highlight in Otis III is appearing: he has been asked to join the legendary RHYTHM KINGS, the former band of Bill Wyman!! A UK Tour is booked by John Hessenthaler, and now we are announcing this unique chance to book Otis Redding III for the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.

All bookings of Otis III in Europe, except England, are being arranged centrally by us.

At the 26 th and 27 th of August 2016 there were two smashing concerts in The Netherlands, in Luxor Live in Arnhem and the North Sea Jazz Club in Amsterdam.

On the 5th of November 2016 Herman Brood would have celebrated his 70th Birthday. Now his fans have done this for him in Amsterdam, together with Hans Vandenburg, Michel van Dijk, Koos van Dijk, Nina Hagen and, very special, Otis Redding III! Of course the Wild Romance, Herman's band with still a few original members, accompanied all the vocalists.

According to Herman Brood Otis Redding II was God in the world of soul music. He has recorded the Otis-song Champagne & Wine on his legendary album Shpritz; on the album Hooks you will find Hard to Handle. Both songs were presented at this special night in such a succesfull way, that the crowd turned upside down. One year after this Otis III joined the Wild Romance again for two shows.

Photos of the show with the Wild Romance in 2016 can be found here:

Omdat we het niet kunnen laten gaan we een paar keer per maand zelf op pad om met tip-top geluid, mooi functioneel licht en een hoop golden oldies van o.a. Tina Turner, Meat Loaf, Blues Brothers, Boney M, Grease, Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers, Saturday Night Fever, The Trammps, Kool & The Gang, Status Quo, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles en heel veel anderen de boel op stelten te zetten. Heeft u een wel heel speciaal "eigen" liedje? Laat dat vooraf even weten, dan nemen we die gegarandeerd mee!

Geen schreeuwerige deejay die zichzelf de leukste vindt, maar de muziek die het doet. Ruim dertig jaar ervaring hebben we hiermee, met als instelling het is UW feest. Zeer geschikt voor 25-jarige bruiloften, Abraham- en Sarahfeesten, jubilarissen etc. Wij draaien niets uit de huidige top-50 (tenzij dat toevallig een gouwe ouwe is die opnieuw is uitgebracht!)!. Alleen maar 60's, 70's, 80's en 90's; af en toe een zero's.

Op speciaal verzoek kan vriend en ex-Radio Noordzee Nationaal collega EDVARD NIESSING meekomen om ook een paar uur te draaien!

Uniek: wij nemen het hele feest op op cd-r als mp3, zodat u uw feest steeds opnieuw kunt beleven! Wij draaien vanaf cd, we lopen niet te hannesen met zo'n steriele laptop.

Op speciaal verzoek kan er ook de hele avond vanaf vinyl gedraaid worden; daarvoor nemen wij dan onze collega Boudewijn Lahaye mee.

De installatie is berekend op maximaal ongeveer 150 personen; groter kan natuurlijk ook, maar dan is overleg vooraf wel noodzakelijk.
