Savion Glover & The Otherz

Under the musical direction of Savion Glover, THE OTHERZ would be the first quartet to allow the sound of tap dancing to be recognized as an additional instrument and as part of the band. Inspired by John Coltrane, Savion Glover and The Otherz continue to pay homage to such jazz greats through song while highlighting tap dance as the leading instrument. Known for their acclaimed “Starz and Stripes 4ever for Now”, the groups re working of John Phillip Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever”, this powerful selection of musicianship features Patience Higgins, Andy McCloud, Tommy James, and Brian Grice. Celebrating tap dance to sound and sound to the dance, Mr. Glover uses this platform to recognize not only the Masters of Tap but also some of the greatest musicians that can influence ones life and approach to Hoofing.
