The soulful Bruce Henry and his band will join with special guest Debbie Duncan to kick off the sixth year of Live on the Drive on Thursday, June 13 from 6 to 8pm. The free concert is held outdoors on the scenic Victory Memorial Drive at 34th Avenue North in Minneapolis, one of the most beautiful concert settings in the city.
Bruce Henry is an extraordinary musician whose 3-octave range, pure voice and versatile vocal stylings have taken him to gigs on five continents. He has recorded for Disney, HBO and many national ad campaigns. He’s performed with and opened for the likes of Doc Severinson, Roberta Flack, Chris Botti, Ramsey Lewis, Stephane Grapelli, Jimmy Jam and The Sounds of Blackness.
Stephen Slayer, President of American Public Radio, says,
“Bruce Henry’s range is extraordinary, and his on-stage presentation is at once commanding and full of charm. He is a talent of the first order.”
And with Debbie Duncan at his side, this first Live on the Drive concert is simply not to be missed!
Mr. Henry’s concert will start this season in style as we enter the sixth year of our wonderful community concert series. Be sure to pack a picnic, invite your neighbors, bring your friends and walk or roll to the concert.
