Bio

The Steve Hensby Band are heavy on the horns and very danceable! Their self-titled debut was well received and featured folk music from different parts of the world mused together to make a gypsy/circus style album. For the follow up ‘Chase the Sun’ they drew from Soul/Groove/Funk music and added a five piece horn section.

In-between releasing albums they put on ‘Steve Hensby’s Circus’ to sold out crowds at FRINGE WORLD Perth in January 2018, this featured aerial, contortion, clown, burlesque and fire routines performed to songs from the first album. In dec/jan 2019 they went on their first UK in duo form and Steve’s humour, talentand energy combined with Elysia beautiful vocals never failing to win over audiences.

Steve Hensby is a Berklee WAMI nominated musician who also works as a session player in the Perth area.

The band heads off in duo mode on a UK tour for a month in December 2018. Stay tuned for their upcoming album......

From the get-go, this funk tune put me in the best mood. Whimsical and cheeky, this tune just oozes good times and boogie nights.
