The Headhunters Album Release for "Speakers in the House"

Sponsored by KNKX. The Headhunters show features Bill Summers, Mike Clark, Donald Harrison, Kyle Roussel and Chris Severin, touring in support of The Headhunters' new release, "Speakers in the House" on Ropeadope Records. This is a 21+ show.

Kept alive and thriving by Bill Summers and Mike Clark decades, The Headhunters continue to bring dynamic new music to the world.

Mike Clark and Bill Summers are two of a kind - they share a love for music that never dies. The pair kept The Headhunters alive, releasing two albums in “Survival of the Fittest” in 1975 and “Straight From The Gate” in 1977 with Herbie as featured guest. The chemistry between them is undeniable: They have persevered for over 40 years through industry setbacks, the death of band members, and more, to stay true to their mission with the same energy and zeal that the music demands.

Eleven years after their last release, The Headhunters are set to release “Speakers In The House,” a new full length album featuring Summers, Clark, NEA Jazz master Donald Harrison, Stephen Gordon, bassist Reggie Washington, and organist Jerry Z. The album also features Scott Roberts and Fode Sissoko on kora. The Headhunters spirit is alive and well on the album, which fuses the band’s African and New Orleans influences with their ever-present technical jazz-funk, rooted in music history and growing in the present moment.
