The Otis Mission is led by veteran drummer and prominent Memphis musician, James Otis Sexton.

While James is widely known as a versatile drummer, having performed, toured, or recorded with several world renowned and Grammy-winning artists, he is least known as a composer. For this reason, “The Otis Mission” was created, and it will solely perform James’ original musical compositions.

Because he’s performed in a plethora of musical genres including gospel, jazz, fusion, rhythm & blues, hip hop, salsa, and more, it’s no surprise that his music would reflect just that.

This promises to be a fun night of music and the inception of a new staple in Memphis music heritage.

This ensemble consists of James Sexton (drums), Tony Dickerson (keys), Alvie Givhan (keys), Deante Payne (mallets), Joe Restivo (guitar), and Ted Partin (bass).
