Jose Hendrix is a pop singer from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He lives in Kinshasa, the capital city, with annual or semi annual stays in the US of 2 or 3 months at a time. He has also spent considerable time in London, performing with a group there. How he wound up in the States and hooked up with Kansas City musicians is a rather long story. Suffice to say that it's an interesting and exciting blend of musical influences. When performing in the Kansas City environs the band can be a mix-and-match hodgepodge of players. The most common line-up (as of spring 2012) is:


Jay EuDaly - guitar, vocals

Brian Padavic - bass

Steve Barrett - drums, vocals

In addition to this core, depending on the venue, musician availability, and budget, the band may include:

Phil Brenner - saxes, flute  

Ayo McPherson - congas   

Don Schmidt - guitar, vocals

Jaisson Taylor - drums, percussion, vocals 

Kevin Johnson - drums
