$200 - $1000 per event
Floating Otis came together during high school in the winter of 2000. They had all been playing music in high school for a while and finally decided to take it one step further. One day during jazz band rehearsal, Tim Kayser heard that Chris Cornwell(drums) David Corrigan(guitar), and Scott Dedert(bass) were looking to get a band together. When Tim approached them to ask Scott and Chris if they needed a guitarist/lead singer, they asked him to come and play for them. Casey Cornwell also was invited to the first official practice together. On that day they decided that Tim would be lead singer and play guitar and Casey would sing harmony and work the crowd. They had been practicing for several weeks and were approaching their first show at their high schools after-prom party, when they realized they didn’t have a name. After endless hours of arguing over band names, Tim blurted out a name that his sister had told him. “Floating Otis,” Tim said jokingly. It seems that during the week the band was going to decide on the name, her pet fish died. Everybody in the band liked the idea, and thus Floating Otis was born. As one great year went by of constant playing, our lead guitarist David had to leave us to go to college and Casey decided to leave the band as well. The band decided that they needed another guitarist who was capable of singing back up. Tim asked his friend from work Alex Ginos to come and play for them. The band liked what they saw in Alex and welcomed their newest member of the band. That brings us up to date. Floating Otis just released their first full-length cd Belly Up, and hopes to gig like crazy to promote themselves and their cd.
