Henry Turner Jnr

Artists Genre: Urban

What happens when you mix different people with several different styles of music and a deep love to create something unique? You get the band Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor. A band whose unique style and presence on stage has given them a special following in their native Louisiana and now the world.

Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor started with Henry Turner Jr. His first thought was to create a band whose music would be appreciated by a large number of people and musical markets. Mr. Turner wanted to create a completely different kind of sound. Henry, who is also the president of Hit City Records, has managed several successful independent bands and artists. This, with the love of music that started from an early age, has allowed him to bring together a unique collection of people.

Henry Turner Jr., lead vocalist and guitarist for the band, is the driving force behind this band’s appeal. Henry’s influence on the band comes somewhat from his early musical influences. Blues and jazz greats like B.B. King Bob Marley and George Benson have allowed Henry to bring forth a unique perspective to the realm of reggae. The style of the music, as quoted by Henry, is “… an infused sound … also an infusion of R&B /Reggae with some jazz chording.” This unique style has allowed the band to go where other bands cannot.

Jonathon “Boogie” Long, bassist and vocalist, the newest member of the band, is proficient with a number of instruments (piano, drums, trumpet, French horn, sax, flute, clarinet, and mandolin) and has taught lessons on them. “I started in music at the early age of three. I received my first guitar for Christmas that year. I messed with it every day but got really serious around the age of 8 or 9 and knew right then that music would be my career.” Finally falling in love with the bass, Jonathon says “After spending so many years on guitar when I picked up the bass it was like a piece of silk in my hands. I knew right then that although my main instrument would be guitar, the bass would be the instrument I actually made something of myself with.” Boogie enjoys Flavor’s, “unique style of music and its intricate rhythms and beats.” Jonathon considers part of his role in Flavor is “to keep the reggae alive.”

Ronnie Houston, the senior member of the Flavor band, is a profound R&B drummer. With various influences, including artists such as Bobby Powell, James Brown, Buddy Rich and Billy Cobham, Ronnie has toured the United States and Europe since the early 1970s. Ronnie has added an element of stability to the Flavor roster since 1990.
