On Saturday, May 11th, Hammond B3 organ master Cory Henry is coming in hot to Denver, CO’s Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom with his high-powered, gospel-oriented trio, The Revival. Henry and company will also welcome some surprise special guests to add some extra sauce to the Denver “service.”
Cory Henry, a Brooklyn NY native, is a two-time Grammy Award-winning keyboardist with musical roots in gospel, jazz, and soul. Raised and schooled in the art of the organ through church starting at the age of 2, Cory Henry’s music has always carried an element of spiritual awakening. Henry’s 2016 release and touring project, The Revival, features his dynamic and improvisational performances of music ranging from old gospel to Stevie Wonder and beyond.

Cory’s current touring lineup for The Revival is rounded out by players as talented and prolific as the man behind the organ. On guitar, there’s Chicago native and fellow church-bred musical Isaiah Sharkey. Though he’s less than 30 years of age, Sharkey has already worked with a veritable who’s-who of award-winning musicians. He earned a Grammy for his contributions to D’Angelo‘s acclaimed third album, Black Messiah (2014), and toured the world as part of John Mayer‘s band in 2017, among other notable collaborations. On drums, there’s TaRon Lockett, who also serves as the drummer for Henry’s Funk Apostles. Before he began working with Cory, TaRon collaborated with his own list of high-profile artists Erykah Badu to Cee Lo Green to Prince to Snoop Dogg.
The performance at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom follows a number of early-2019 gigs by The Revival, including a lengthy European tour and a 4-night, 8-show residency at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York in honor of his birthday in late-February and early-March. The Denver performance will also feature some surprise special guests to round out a band lineup already bursting with talent.
