Otis Redding III, the son of Otis Redding and the Edwin Starr Band featuring Angelo Starr, younger brother of Edwin Starr came to the Palace Theatre, Southend on Tuesday 14 March.

 

The show performed the music of one of the most influential soul singers of the 1960s whose life was tragically cut short when he died in a plane crash at just 26-years old.

Regarded by many as the ‘voice of soul,’ Otis was renowned for his magnetic stage presence and sincere performances which made him star.

Edwin Starr also achieved legendary status in soul circles with several Top Ten hits on the R&B charts over the late ’60s and early ’70s.

The amazing Edwin Starr band performed the very best of Otis’ hits led by Otis Redding III – such as ‘Pain In My Heart’, ‘Mr Pitiful’, ‘Satisfaction’ and of course ‘Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay’ – complete with visual memories in one set and Edwin Starr hits in another set including his most famous hit ‘War’ and ‘Play That Music,’ sung by Angelo Starr.
