Introducing the Henways

After my most recent stint of performing as a solo and duo act for a couple of years, I had the good fortune to convince a couple of old bandmates from my musical past to join me in a new endeavor. “Aardvark” and I played together for the better part of a decade and I met the Doctor of Styx when we played with the Hogs together beginning in the early part of this millenium. Aardvark and the Doctor very quickly bonded as a tight and driving rhythm section, The Henway Brothers, Don and Ernest.To maximize a musical entity’s creative potential, it makes sense to play together and see what evolves. With this band, it didn’t take long. Stripped down classic rock came naturally to this trio and we also found we shared a taste for more than just the standards. We tend to mix in more unusual and esoteric music from the last six decades. While we resolved never to play “Mustang Sally”, we do interpretations of Tom Petty, Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, Link Wray, Grateful Dead, Elvis Costello, the Who, Van Morrison, and many more.
This band represents an entirely new concept for me, just when I thought I’d done everything. I don’t remember being so excited about any musical project.
