"Well-crafted songs, strong lyrics and an entertaining, high-energy performance."
Boston singer/songwriter Lee Totten has been bringing his introspective upbeat acoustic/folk/pop/rock songs to audiences throughout New England and across the country. Totten has performed over 1300 shows whether solo acoustic or rocking out with his full band. Lee's natural storytelling ability brings equal parts insight and humor to the show, whether it's through the between-song stories or the well-crafted lyrics of his music.
And yet it was "The Jager Song", a drinking song about the hazards of drinking the German liquor, that became Hartford, CT's Radio 104's Friday afternoon drive-time anthem. Soon it could be heard throughout New England on stations like WCCC, WAAF and WFNX and it earned Lee the moniker 'Jager Guy' and the occupation hazard of people buying him Jagermeister shots everywhere he goes.
"Lee Totten is a bad mamba jamba."
