Henry Roland has gone by a lot of names during his time in Austin: Henry + The Invisibles, Henry And The Invisibles, now just Henry Invisible. But his best moniker? “The One Man Funk Band.” Henry’s performances feature him live looping all the instruments–vocal harmonies, guitars, bass, drums, keyboards–all in the moment.
On May 4th, Henry brings his unique style to the finale of UTOPiA Fest, both as an artist and as the bandleader of UTOPiA’s all-star band. This week on My KUTX, he’s also our guest DJ, playing a deeply funk hour of his favorite songs and artists.
