Scotty Karate — Ypsilanti’s Best Musician

Posted by ppna on December 28, 2007

Scotty KarateIt must be 6 or 7 years since I first saw Scotty Karate at the Elbow Room in Ypsilanti. That nights event might have changed my life forever. It was a big show night when Scotty Karate opened for Bob Log III, Scotty had his TeePee on stage and was backed by JoJo Buns (now a hairstylist if you can believe it). After that show I found out that Scotty and JoJo played happy hour sets every Friday at the Elbow and I probably only missed a few.

Scotty has been sticking with the music but hasn’t been noticed commercially for his fantastic talent even though he has been featured often in local publications. Dark Horse Brewery even created a Scotty Karate Scotch Ale on his behalf. If you are lucky enough you might even spot Scotty as the special date on an episode of Elimidate.

Scotty often plays as a one man band but also appears with his group Scotch Bonnet. If you see him with a band or by himself Scotty Karate shows are shows you shouldn’t miss. I mention this because Scotty will be playing TCs Speakeasy this Saturday Night. Make sure you pick up some T-shirts, CDs, CDRs, Over-alls or whatever else he might be selling when you see him at the show.

If you miss the show pick up Scotty merchandise below:
