Henry Turner and his band formed after he had an idea to create a completely new kind of music which highlighted a fusion of contemporary and funky rhythms which infused elements of R&B, reggae and blues and jazz chording. This unique style has allowed the band to go to where other bands cannot and has allowed the band to reach a cross section of fans both nationally and internationally.
Other members of the band include profound R&B drummer Ronnie Houston who has toured America and Europe since the 1970’s and newest member Irie Hip who plays several instruments and has toured Louisiana, Europe Canada and Japan. Together they form a group that plays a unique blend of funk and reggae that has been described as a sure crowd pleaser.
