For the past two years, Snarky Puppy have performed at Irving Plaza in New York City on New Year’s Eve. With the Puppy’s switching up their plans this year, it only makes sense that their place at Irving Plaza would be picked up by former Snarky Puppy and the Chief Apostle himself, Cory Henry. Henry will bring his Funk Apostles with him to New York for what’s sure to be a memorable New Years Eve performance.
Henry won two GRAMMY awards for his work with Snarky Puppy, however he also has been an in-demand touring and recording musician for years now. Henry formerly toured as a member of Aretha Franklin‘s band, and his studio work has allowed him to cross paths with a diverse list of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, The Roots, P. Diddy, Kenny Garrett, Yolanda Adams and more. Henry has also seen success as a solo artist, with two solo albums charting in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Jazz charts.
As a result of Henry’s many musical endeavors, he has crossed paths with tons of incredible musicians over the years, and from those experiences The Funk Apostles were born. All of the members of the band are talented players with years of experience under their collective belt who Henry met throughout his career. Guitarist Adam Agati has worked with everyone from Booker T. Jones to Ludacris; bassist Sharay Reed has performed with Patti LaBelle, Chakha Khan, and more; drummer TaRon Lockett has performed with some of the biggest names in R&B, such as Erykah Badu, Montell Jordan and Snoop Dogg; keyboardist Nick Semrad ’s credits include Miss Lauryn Hill and Bilal.
Henry has put together a true all-star cast from the world of funk, R&B, hip-hop, and soul, and they are coming to New York prepared to ring in the New Year in the funkiest way possible. Tickets will go on sale on Ticketmaster Friday, November 10th at 12:00 PM EST.
