Henry Turner Jr.
Recreating the sounds of music, Henry Turner Jr. draws on the diversity of his hometown Louisiana in order to generate a fusion of soul, funk and blues. From this idea of miscellany and assortment, Henry Turner Jr. and the Flavor Band were created.
The concept for the band was to produce a blissful combination of contemporary and ethnic rhythms while featuring hypnotic elements of reggae, funk beats and the undeniable sounds of R&B. With cross genre appeal, Henry Turner Jr. and the Flavor have performed their innovative style of music in clubs and at festivals country wide and internationally, while also releasing numerous singles and CD’s.
The Hit City Digital recording artists have released eight CD's and over fourteen singles. Some of their better known hits include "2 Many Women," "Ugly Man" and "Love Me or Leave Me." This year the band will debut two new singles. The touching soul song "Let Me See the Old Folks, 1 Mo Time" and the reggae soul dance tune "Smile on Her Face." The band is well known for their tongue in cheek lyrics, upbeat dance numbers and touching ballads. Additionally, Turner is releasing a solo project entitled "Love Songs & Heartaches."
The band is Henry Turner Jr. on vocals and guitar, with veteran R&B drummer and vocalist Ronnie Houston, Irie Hip on piano and new to the tour this year is bass player Isaac Jones. Background vocalists Jenessa Nelson and Yolanda Sigger will join the band at select stops. Acoustic solo performer, JohnnyMidnite, will open for the band at key venues with guest soloists, additional background singers and musicians being featured along the way.
