Eric Henry

Host, The Blues Revival

For as long as he can remember, Eric Henry has been a connoisseur of many types of tone and music. He was raised in Xenia among a family of many players and appreciators of music of all kinds. Eric gravitated towards the genres that included expressive electric guitar- especially “The Blues” and its many offshoots. After receiving his first guitar as a gift at the tender age of fourteen, he quickly learned the ins and outs of playing and began to develop a keen knack for hearing and analyzing tone that he has now become well known for throughout the Miami Valley area. By the age of 18, Eric was front man for his own band, a 3 piece blues powerhouse known as “Midnight Blue”. From there, he and his parents were venturing to gigs at venues of all kinds throughout the Tri-State region. He's been associated with many acts like “Miss Lissa & Company”, “Lost on Iddings” and currently, “Wolf Moon Revival”. Throughout his travels and performances, he has garnered a vast knowledge of all things Blues and beyond that he enjoys sharing as a means of “Keeping the Blues Alive”... A Blues Revival- if you will.

Eric Henry currently resides in Xenia, Ohio with his wife, Melissa, two young sons and two spoiled cats.
