Henry Butler Booking Agency Profile

Book Henry Butler for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Widely hailed as a pianist and vocalist both as a solo artist and with a variety of groups. Considered by many to be the premier exponent of the great New Orleans jazz and blues piano tradition, Henry Butler is equally respected for his versatile work as a composer and arranger in a broad range of genres, and as a speaker and educator in high demand on conference programs and college campuses around the country. His first recording, Fivin Around, featuring Charlie Haden, the late Billy Higgins, and the late Freddie Hubbard in addition to other outstanding artists, was extremely well received. To enhance his visibility, he moved to New York shortly after recording his double album, The Village. Even Katrina couldnt stop him. Within days of learning that he had lost not only valuable instruments and equipment but most of his lifes work, Henry was in Austin, Texas, congregating with a core group of preeminent New Orleans musicians including George Porter and Leo Nocentelli of the Meters and guests Irma Thomas, Dr. John and others who came to be known as The New Orleans Social Club. Together, these artists did what highly creative people do in the midst of catastrophe: they used the power of music to transform their grief and anger into a rallying call for solidarity that went out to grieving New Orleanians all over the country. The product was Sing Me Back Home, among the first and certainly among the most powerful of the post-Katrina recordings. Extensive touring followed almost immediately. .
