Dr. Henry Band

from Winnipeg, MB

Portage and Mainers are reknowned for treating their seasonal affective disorder by staying inside to rock and roll when it's 40 below but here's a new remedy: a house call from Dr. Henry, ready to treat your SAD with an exciting hit of groovy, hip-shaking, Afro-fusion jazz! Dr. Henry band's three core musicians met in Winnipeg after moving from Nigeria for higher education pursuits. Their cool sound is shaped by their West African roots as well as familial influences, musical inspirations and collaborations with fellow Winnipeggers. In their vibrant and colourful musical mosaic, you can hear Afro-beat inspired by its master, Fela Kuti, as well as neo-soul and polyrhythmic jazz. It's delightfully infectious and an instant cure-all. Call the Dr. Henry band for whatever ails you.
