Smith was born and raised in New Orleans, La., the birthplace of jazz. He has toured the United States and Europe performing his New Orleans jazz, blues, Creole and Cajun flavored music.
Smith now travels throughout New England and back to New Orleans with his band "Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours." He has shared the stage with The James Montgomery Blues Band, Roomful of Blues, Charles Neville (of the Neville Brothers), The Chris Fitz Band, The Hurricane Horns with Craig Rawring, Lisa Marie and All Shook, Grace Kelly, Stanton Davis Jr. and The Ghetto Mysticism Revival, River City Slim and the Zydeco Hogs, The Davis and Deleault Quartet, The Tony Gallo Band and others.
Besides singing and performing music, Smith is also a movie and TV actor, appearing in many recent films. He also hosts his own music TV show called "Henri Smith’s N’awlins East" on the Cape Ann Cable TV Network.
Along with his jazz musicians, Smith will be joined on stage by local guest vocalist Diane Disanto.
