After his sensational sell out show in 2023, Boogie & blues piano phenom Henri Herbert returns to the 100 Club for one night only to celebrate the CD release of his “Live in New York” album – a recording of Henri on solo piano at the legendary Rockwood Music Hall in New York City that is being released on CD for the first time ever.  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. With over 100 million video views and concerts from Hawaii to Lithuania, 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 four years where he holds down a regular residency playing before Jimmie Vaughan every Friday at C Boy’s. In 2021, Henri performed for The Prince of Monaco at Nice Opera in France and continues to tour over the world both solo and with his band. As a sideman, Henri has worked with Sue Foley, Carolyn Wonderland, Dave Alvin, Eve Monsees, Du Blonde, Charlie Sexton, Chuck Leavell, Kim Wilson, Jim Jones Revue, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Stroeger and Bryan Adams.

“A blazing young pianist” – Lawrence Wright, The New Yorker

“Like Jools Holland possessed by Jerry Lee Lewis and The Devil Himself” – Jon Aizlewood, London Evening Standard

“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
