Sunday, August 5th at 9:00 pm (The Liberty Bar & Lounge)
After Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers close down the Main Stage, the festival concludes with a special performance by Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles at The Liberty Bar & Lounge. Join us for this energetic show in what is sure to be a memorable way to end the 2017 Telluride Jazz Festival.
Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles
Snarky Puppy’s Hammond B3 maestro, Cory Henry, has hatched up a funk outfit we think will look good on you. Since debuting at the tender age of six on the hallowed Apollo Theater stage, this profoundly talented keyboardist has an array of GRAMMY awards on his mantel for his work with Snarky Puppy. With his group of handpicked musicians, Cory stretches the boundaries of what funk should sound like and where it should take the listener. The band unleashes driving grooves as a platform for inventive, but in the pocket improvisations. Their fresh takes on classics like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” stud their set list. They test the limit of what’s possible, turning funk and jazz and soul into a most delicious musical stew.
In addition to "The Final Waltz" closing show, Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles will play on the festival's Main Stage Sunday, August 5, at 4:00 PM. Learn their story, hear their music and watch more videos on their artist page here.
