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.

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.
