NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts, Norwich, will present The John Henrys, Canadian alternative country and roots band, on Friday, March 11 at 7 p.m. in the Martin W. Kappel Theater.
The John Henrys have a sound that is undefinable. They draw from a potpourri of influences and styles and blend them into something that is part alt-country, part Americana, part jam band and part rock n roll.
Compared to the likes of Neil Young, The Band and Tom Petty, The John Henrys have developed a reputation for tight musicianship, original arrangements and well crafted song writing. Band members Rey Sabatin (lead vocals / guitarist), Steve Tatone (keyboards), Doug Gouthro (guitar), Daryl Quinlan (bass) and Geoff Ward (drums) all contribute to songwriting and production, and their music shows a deep appreciation for vintage instruments and analog recording.
