Hank Stephens band leader for the Experience traces his musical roots to Gospel, Motown and the Chicago Music scene of Blues and Jazz. He was influenced by the music of Stevie Wonder, George Duke, Johnny Hartman, Joe Williams , Al Jarreau and of course George Benson. He has performed in Opera Goes to Church, Forest Park Jazz Concert, Local clubs, Chez Nora, Redmoor, The Greenwich, Blue Wisp, Symphony Hotel and The Encore. He is currently performing with the Experience at the Symphony Hotel most Friday nights, throughout the year. Our fans agree that the musical selections provided are eclectic, soul stirring and thought provoking.
