“His bar-room boogie piano manages to be, variously, celebratory, rolling, turbulent, manic and even - delicate and moving.” -Jude Clarke, BBC Music
“Very few pianists on the planet can put as much sheer emotion or adrenaline-fueled virtuosity into their performances.” -Matt Frost, The Blues Magazine
WATCH: Austin Texas Boogie Woogie // Gettin On Down // New York Skyline BluesBoogie & blues piano phenom Henri Herbert brings his electrifying show to town for one night only, part of his “Boogie ‘Till I Die Tour.”
With over 100 million video views and concerts around the world, Henri Herbert is one of the most popular boogie and blues piano players in the world. Originally from the UK. Henri has called Austin, TX home for the past three years.
His concert at World Cafe Live is his debut performance in Philadelphia and only concert in the region. It's a rare opportunity to witness first-hand the music that birthed rock n’ roll and inspired so many of today’s rock legends.
In concert, Henri makes clear that this rollicking sound remains as invigorating today as it did 100 years ago when boogie and blues began its takeover of barrooms and juke joints across America.
