THE TRIPLE DOOR
216 Union Street
From the instant funk classic “Chameleon” to the rare-groove sound of “God Make Me Funky,” the Headhunters have redefined modern funk, world music, and jazz as one of the most innovative groups in history. Following the release of the groundbreaking Head Hunters (1973) the first album to garner gold status in jazz history, the band toured and recorded for several years with legendary pianist Herbie Hancock, releasing several hit records.
The Headhunters’ music is a complex blend of many styles and genres, including jazz, funk, African and Afro-Caribbean music. The group is also notable for its pioneering use of electronic instruments and effects. Though Herbie Hancock is no longer in the group, the current lineup is as impressive as ever original members Bill Summers on Percussion, Mike Clark on Drums, augmented by Donald Harrison on Saxophone, Gerri Allen on Keyboards and Richie Goods on Bass.
