CEG Presents The Hoboken Funk Fest
1039 Washington St.
Hoboken, NJ, 07030
Doors 8:30 PM / Show 9:30 PM
Drenched in soul, nestled deep in a groove, OTiS is the product of time and experience. The band strings together sounds that have deeply influenced their lives to create music inspired by everything from soul to funk and back again. Singer Craig Schoenbaum had a dream to unite like-minded, passionate musicians, and his dreams are most certainly coming true. Since 2009, the Brooklyn band’s presence has been on the map, but in the last year they’ve solidified a reputation as a show stopping live act, with powerful musicianship and song writing chops to boot.
OTiS has recently made appearances at the cult-favorite Montauk Music Festival and the Escape2NY Music Festival. They remain in the rotation of NYC’s hottest venues including Sullivan Hall, Brooklyn Bowl, and their new favorite- Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage 2 on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. 2012 has seen OTiS branching out into the Boston and Philly markets, so be on the lookout for them up and down the East Coast.
*More good news as OTiS receives song writing praise from the International Community, placing FIRST for song of the year (2011 International Songwriting Competition) with their single ‘Makin’ Love Easy.’ Currently, OTiS continues to promote their second album, “Music Elevator.” This exceptional sophomore record has been getting bodies and minds moving in all the right directions. Look for it on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Bandcamp.
Finally 2012 has brought OTiS' first AAA radio campaign. The following stations have added 'Music Elevator' to their Playlists: KDHX in St. Louis, KFAI in Minneapolis, KKFI in Kansas City, KPFT in Houston, KRVS in Lousiana, WERS in Boston, WERU in Bangor, WESU in Middletown, WEFT in Champaign, WMNF in Tampa, WMSR in Auburn, WMUD in Burlington, WVIA in PA and WWUH in Hartford.
