The Dap-Kings to Play Otis Redding Tribute at the Apollo

On January 25, New York’s famed Apollo Theater will host a special tribute to late legend Otis Redding featuring house band The Dap-Kings and hostess Whoopi Goldberg.

Dubbed An Evening of Respect, the event will honor the iconic vocalist, along with the 50th anniversary of his ubiquitous hit “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” which Redding co-wrote with guitarist Steve Cropper and released in 1967. Special guests for the evening, which will benefit The Otis Redding Foundation, will be announced soon and are expected to include artists that worked with Redding and those that have been influenced by his work.

Tickets for An Evening of Respect go on sale next week on November 28 at 10am here.
