He worked with bass player Will Lee (David Letterman’s band), drummer Liberty Devito (Billy Joel’s band) and alongside producer Hack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, Lou Grahm). He has appeared on the “Dick Clark Show,” as well as many other national and local shows. His expertise in the studio working as an engineer, producer and programmer, has earned him recognition amongst many top recording artists.
Henry has been a full time professional musician all his life. His musical abilities cover the spectrum, playing and singing in styles like (Van Morrison, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Al Green) and his original compositions reflect those styles.
After spending years playing in piano bars near his home in Long Island New York, as well as bands in New York City, Europe and the Caribbean, his audition for the musical Movin’ Out, choreographed by Twyla Tharp, came as no surprise. Having been hand picked by Ms. Tharp to perform the lead, his entire focus and dedication for two years was given to Billy Joel’s musical Broadway production of “Movin Out.” His performances as the “Piano Man” Billy Joel, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City, produced rave reviews.
It is only natural that Henry take the next step in producing and performing with his own stage production in a tribute to the great music of Billy Joel.
