MIAC Live: Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles

Thursday, February 23, 2017 - 7:30pm
Walker Recital Hall

Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles will bring a powerful, slick and raucous new brand of funk to Walker Recital Hall on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m., courtesy of the Mercyhurst Institute for Arts & Culture, the Jazz Touring Network program of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. With a style owing more to idols Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum than the typical Hammond organ heroes who preceded him, Cory Henry has created an alchemy of gospel-inflected R&B, funk, jazz and global influences that move the body and touch the soul. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and $10 for students/youths.
