Here are some additional images from Shuggie Otis’ performance at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill last Thursday in Times Square. The show proved so popular that Shuggie was also booked for an additional appearance at the venue, which took place this past Saturday. BrooklynVegan said, “Shuggie showed that his guitar chops are in fine form.” You can view the images below and also check out more photos at BrooklynVegan.com.
