Being a part of Finis Henderson’s audience is equivalent to being invited to a reunion of some of the entertainment industry’s greatest legends and contemporary favorites. Sinatra, Boyz II Men, Presley, Alan Jackson, Nat King Cole (and daughter Natalie), Sammy Davis Jr., and many others gather on stage for an evening of music, dancing, and comedy. Weaving the comic personas of the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Rodney Dangerfield, and Mike Tyson through the crowd, one is apt to forget they’re not watching a crazed chorus, but the versatile talent of one dynamic performer.
The sound is theirs … the voice is pure Finis Henderson. And as the evening draws to a close, it isn’t a legend that brings the audience to its feet, but the intensely melodic strains of Mr. Henderson’s own renditions of “Music of the Night.”
It was only natural that Finis would go into show business. His father was a successful song and dance man, and one time Vice-President of Sammy Davis Jr. Enterprises. Being exposed to that kind of talent and encouragement, he followed up with formal training at the Chicago School of the Arts at Columbia College. Afterwards, he took his act to Los Angeles and polished it at the famed Comedy Store. Since then, he has headlined at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, and has performed in major comedy venues and casinos across the nation. Finis recently “struck gold” at The Gold Strike Casino Resort in Robinsonville, Mississippi, with continuos standing ovations and shows held-over by popular demand! Finis performed our National Anthem at The Autozone Ballpark in Memphis during this time. He has also opened for such superstars as Jackie Mason, Smokey Robinson, Barbara Mandrell, and Alan King, to name a few.
There is something about Finis Henderson’s performance that makes him stand out from every other musical impressionist in the business. His obvious passion for entertaining combined with his elegant style and limitless talent make him one of the most successful performers on the corporate circuit today. Finis is doing it all! In addition to live club, casino, and corporate appearances, his television credits include Make Me Laugh, The Jacksons (mini-series), Nashville Now, Comic Strip Live, Crazy Horse Saloon, and A Little Bit Strange. Films encompass Wired and I’m Gonna Get You Sucka!
Finis Henderson delivers a clean, fun, and thoroughly entertaining show. The marvelous gift he has been given is now his gift to us … polished to perfection and heading for stardom.
