Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles whip up an intoxicating blend of blues, soul, R&B, Afrobeat, gospel, and jazz, blurring genres and upending expectations at every turn. Praised by AllMusic as “one of the finest Hammond B-3 organ players of his generation,” Cory Henry won a pair of GRAMMY Awards for his work with the band Snarky Puppy since 2012. Now coming fully into his own as a bandleader and storyteller, the simultaneously futuristic and retro, experimental and classic sound of Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles demonstrates Henry’s place as one of modern music’s most inventive minds.

The evening concert is currently SOLD OUT. There will be standby admission at the door. Tickets for the concert are FREE for students; $10 for Brown faculty and staff; and $20 for general public.

All are welcome to attend the afternoon workshop with Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles on Friday, Oct 11 at 12:00 pm in Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center for the Creative Arts. The event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, please visit
