Marty Henne

Take the vocal style of a Mel Torme, add the sophistication of a Bobby Short and throw in the story telling skills and comedy of a Johnny Carson. Mix them all together and what do you get? Marty Henne!

Marty performs “The Great American Songbook” with individual shows dedicated to the greats like the Gershwins, Rodgers and Hart, Johnny Mercer and Cole Porter, among others, to more contemporary writers like Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

But it’s not just the great music that Marty performs that makes his shows so entertaining and special. Each show is filled with stories and insights about the writers and the times they lived and worked in, all told with the unique humor, joy and warmth that is Marty Henne.

From night clubs to country clubs, from corporate events to private parties and aboard the most sophisticated cruise ships in the world, Marty has become a favorite among listeners who love good music and great entertainment.

Richard Adler, composer of “The Pajama Game” and “Damn Yankees” says, “Marty’s performances are always great! The combination of his pianistic prowess and his wonderful voice are held tightly together by the wonderful anecdotes and stories he offers. Marty is one of a kind!”

Ava Astaire MacKenzie, daughter of Fred Astaire writes, “I know my father would have loved Marty Henne.”

Audiences around the world have agreed. They all love Marty Henne!
