Hailing from Albany, NY, Wurliday brings together some of the most exciting, dynamic musicians in the live music scene for a lively injection of soul-funk goodness, direct to your ears. The group led by guitarist/songwriter Justin Henricks, and fronted by vocalist Ilana Morris brings forth a new take on combining funk, soul, and songwriting. Behind the vocalists, their rhythm section packs two guitars, bass, drums, and screaming organ that is sure to have you dancing all night long.
Wurliday has been making their way onto the scene in a big way having shared stages with legendary acts such as The Meters, EnVogue, and more. Their latest release, ‘Bedtime Blazer Vol. II’ is the conclusion of a two EP collaboration project that features special guests Jennifer Hartswick, Girl Blue, and Steve Swatkins to name a few. Bedtime Blazer was recorded and produced by Alan Evans (Soulive) at his Iron Wax Studio in Millers Falls, MA.
The concert is part of Fenimore Art Museum’s rock ‘n’ roll programming based on their highlight exhibition Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits (on view through September 2, 2019). Known for his elegant and minimalist work, and his mastery of photographing in natural light, photographer Herb Ritts (1952–2002) had a gift for turning stars into icons. Here, in the first curated collection of his photos of some of music’s most celebrated artists, visitors will see how he captured the likes of David Bowie, Tina Turner, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Prince, Cher, Madonna and over 40 more—the world’s biggest music stars—and in the process, helped define their iconic status for generations of fans. See many of his best-known portraits alongside stage costumes and guitars from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
