Henri Herbert, boogie piano master and former pianist of The Jim Jones Revue, brings his piano-led power trio to Manchester. The band features Nick Jones (formerly of The Jim Jones Revue and Heavy Stereo) on drums and Tim Purkess (formerly of The Stargazers) on bass. After the Jim Jones Revue split in 2014, Henri decided to focus on his songwriting and solo performances. He has since performed 80 solo shows in the UK, Europe and Canada, and now begins the next chapter of his career with The Henri Herbert Band. The band will also be performing a live session for Marc Riley at BBC 6.
“Like Jools Holland posessed by Jerry Lee Lewis and The Devil Himself!” Jon Aizlewood, London Evening Standard
“He’s his own man, without the slightest intention of trading on former glories..it’s his original songs that linger in the memory after the show is over” Julian Marzsalek, The Blues Magazine
