Arnett Howard and Friends formed in 2004, a year after the end of the highly acclaimed Arnett Howard and his Creole Funk Band. With a more relaxed schedule, Arnett Howard and Friends have had a change in attitude. With one foot in retirement, Arnett performs one Thursday a month, usually the 2nd Thursday, at Mozart’s Cafe, 4784 North High Street, in Columbus’ Clintonville neighborhood. Arnett can also be heard at other venues around the area – check our calendar for updated listings.
Although they play every kind of music, from reggae, funk, country, gospel and jazz, the band excels in vintage rhythm and blues, Motown and Stax. Arnett and Friends includes Arnett on keyboards, trumpet and vocals, Bob Davis on keyboards, Mike Roberts on saxophone, and Ron Henderson and/or David Hampton on drums.
