Leigh Henry Band

Based in Stratford CT

The Leigh Henry Band - five serious, professional musicians with chops, passion and decades of experience get together to start a band...for the fun of it.  What do YOU get? A seriously fun band!  If it rocks or rolls…and got soul...we’re on it.   A band with energy, style and that undeniable groove...go on – try NOT to dance!   

Our core instrumentation is five pieces: guitar/vocalist, bass/vocalist, drums, keyboard and lead male vocalist/percussion.  Sax is available as a sixth piece; female vocalist as a seventh. All the musician are full time, professional players with years of experience playing weddings and private events along with touring credits with national acts.

Heavy on the classic hits from seven decades (and a dash of Top Forty), if it's not in our repertoire we'll DJ during the breaks so we've got your requests covered from the first song to the last dance!   The Leigh Henry Band - coming to a party near you...maybe yours!  

“The Leigh Henry Band was an absolutely fantastic addition to our wedding reception! The band was extremely engaging and got everyone, even the non-dancers on their feet throughout the evening! Leigh was extremely easy to work with and was attentive and accommodating both during the planning process and during the reception. Many of our guests said it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended and it was all thanks to the Leigh Henry Band. We had an amazing wedding and have many fond memories of dancing and laughing throughout the night. I would highly recommend the Leigh Henry band, they truly made our special night one to remember!"     Margo & Scott


My name is Leigh Henry and my passion has always been music. For over thirty years I’ve been fortunate enough to take my passion and make it a business: exceptional music for your occasion.

From my experience performing hundreds of gigs as bandleader, performer and DJ I have learned every event is special… because it’s special to you,  your friends, your family…and reflects your unique vision, taste and style. And it’s only going to happen once – so let’s get it done right.

Experience, passion, professionalism, intuition and attention to detail count at every turn. We’ll talk; I’ll listen. We’ll collaborate; I’ll implement. You host the party; your guests will have a blast. (And you will, too!!)

Since 1985, Leigh Henry Music has serviced over 1500 weddings, private, corporate, charity and country club events in the tri-state area. Leigh’s band, Celebration, has long been considered among the elite in Connecticut, winning numerous industry awards including the The Knot “Hall of Fame” (voted “Best Of” by brides four or more wins) and garnering enthusiastic client reviews.   An accomplished vocalist, drummer/percussionist and guitarist, Leigh is also a DJ and highly successful karaoke host. His karaoke show at the Black Duck Cafe in Westport for 25 years was the longest running show in CT!

Whether you’re looking for a band, DJ, karaoke, soloist, classical, jazz  or musical ensemble of any size, shape and style – or you’re just not sure – Leigh’s expertise, resources and experience can help provide you with the perfect music for your event!
