A lil' about us
Doc Otis is a Junkyard Gypsy Jazz, Steamboat Swing-Slathered sax, guitar, percussion trio. Distilled in the lead-laden foothills of the Missouri Ozarks. Deep Fat Fried in a Vat of the Big Easy. The trio is comprised of Shane Ferguson (saxs & vocals), Tyler Edwards (percussion) & Joshua Miller (guitar & vocals).
The original duo - Ferguson and Miller - began playing music together late 2012, formed Doc Otis early 2014 and headed down to New Orleans, where the began to fall into their very own unique sound and style. Recently (August 2016), the duo brought aboard Edwards as a percussionist. The addition of Edwards has taken the tone, energy and drive of the original duo to a whole new level.
Doc Otis’s sound is a result of insanely high lead contaminates the trio was subjected to from very early ages, coupled with their experiences of sight and sound in New Orleans. Combining the dark insanity of Junkyard Gypsy Jazz that's been slathered with an upbeat Steamboat Swing, then, deep fat fried in a vat of the Big Easy. Doc Otis creates their very own unique and danceable soundscape.
