There is something about a Finis Henderson (fy' nis -- as in finest!) performance that makes him stand out from every other musical impressionist. His obvious passion for entertaining, combined with his elegant style and seemingly limitless talent, make him one of the most successful performers on the casino and corporate circuits today.

Being a part of Finis Henderson's audience is equivalent to being invited to a reunion of some of the entertainment industry's greatest legends and contemporary favorites. Gathering on stage for an evening of music are Sinatra, Boys II men, Presley, Alan Jackson, Nat King Cole and daughter Natalie, Sammy Davis, Jr. and many others.

As he weaves the comic personas of the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Rodney Dangerfield and Mike Tyson through the crowd, one is apt to forget they are not watching a crazed chorus, but the versatile talent of one dynamic performer.

The sound is theirs. The voice is pure Finis Henderson. As the evening draws to a close, it isn't a legend that brings the audience to its feet, but the intensely melodic strains of Mr. Henderson's own rendition of Music of the Night.

It was only natural that Finis would go into show business. His father was a successful song and dance man and one-time Vice-President of Sammy Davis, Jr. Enterprises. Following the exposure to that kind of talent and encouragement, he continued with formal training at the Chicago School of the Arts and Columbia College. Afterwards, he took his act to Los Angeles and polished it at the famed Comedy Store.

Since then, he has headlined at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, all of the major comedy venues and casinos and has appeared with such superstars as Richard Pryor, Yakov Smirnoff, Robert Klein, Rodney Dangerfield, Jackie Mason, Smokey Robinson, Barbara Mandrell and Alan King to name a few.

This vocalist impressionist/comedian is doing it all. In addition to live club, casino and corporate appearances, his television credits include The Jacksons' Mini-Series, Bustin' Loose, Crook and Chase, Nashville Now, Crazy Horse Saloon, Our Family Honor, A Little Bit Strange (an NBC pilot), and Comic Strip Live. He has appeared in several U.S. films, including Wired and I'm Gonna Get You Sucka.

Finis Henderson delivers a clean, fun and thoroughly entertaining show. The marvelous gift he has been given is now his gift to us –polished to perfection!
