A Tribute to Ray Charles
Mike Henry was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. He developed his strong soulful voice performing with the vocal group, the Gospel Ambassadors. He moved to Las Vegas in the 80's and performed in hotel clubs and toured to Atlantic City, Reno and Lake Tahoe. Then he moved to the San Francisco's Bay area and worked in R&B and Funk clubs.

In 1989, Mike moved to Vancouver to join the band Stripes and toured Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. He then toured as a solo singer to Asia, Europe and the Middle East.  He met Dan Casavant in Vancouver and formed the BigDawg Band in 1997.  He has made a name for himself in Vancouver as a dynamic and soulful singer. The influences of Sam Cook, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, and many others live in the heart and voice of Mike Henry.Recently, Mike has formed a solo tribute to Ray Charles and James Brown to honor two of the most influential musicians for him throughout his musical career.

The late Ray Charles was a pioneering American  pianist and soul musician who shaped the sound of rhythm and blues with his musical genius throughout the latter half of the 20th century. His talent earned him the respect of the world. Frank Sinatra once said, “Ray Charles is the only true genius in the business”.

Mike's attention to character detail and amazing vocal melodies bring audiences to the feet at every performance. This amazing tribute performance not to be missed.
