About LITTLE OTIS AND THE UPSETTERS 1982-84: "The name is a play on the two R&B artists we want to emulate – Little Richard (with Jimi Hendrix on guitar covering all the horn lines) and Otis Redding (backed by Booker T) topped off by the sound of Sam The Sham and his Pharoahs. There’s a popular group in the area called the Exciterz so I do a play on their moniker for our band The Upsetters. We eventually split a profitable gig billed as A Night To Excite and Upset You. It’s a peculiar mix of crowds. We’re homeboys and fraternity girls. They’re gothic and leather. But the night comes off great as we rotate the sets. It was the first time that’s done in Bowling Green and it’s pure theater and profitable. Everyone gets paid that night. A good party always rocks. The thing about rock and roll, like salsa, is that it allows you to do what’s on your mind and accent it with a kicking beat. If your clever enough you can transcend the form. A lot of bar bands do on a nightly level."
