Primary Instrument: Various

The Boston Horns is led by Garret Savluk and Henley Douglas Jr., former front men of the Heavy Metal Horns. Over the course of 20 years, they’ve collaborated and toured with a wide range of artists including Tower of Power, Extreme, Johnny A., Shawn Mullins, Laverne Baker, Susan Tedeschi, James Montgomery, Los Lobos and the Del Fuegos, to name a few. Their compelling mix of funk, jazz and soul has kept them busy performing in clubs in New England, at the New Orleans Jazz Festival and beyond. “Shibuya Gumbo”, the new album by The Boston Horns, features tracks with soul singing sensation Barrence Whitfield on vocals and Soulive's Sam Kininger on alto sax.

“Trumpeter Garret Savluk and saxophonist Henley Douglas Jr. ...front a band that rides in the pocket alongside such new-jack acid-jazzers as Karl Denson, Galactic and their brassy brethren. But the roots of the Boston Horns go back to the soul-jazz of the late '60s and the proto-funk of the Crusaders, Tower of Power and Melvin Sparks, whose exquisitely greasy lines grace some of `East Coast Funk.’” ~ Kevin Convey, Boston Herald

“...Boston Horns lay down a classic sound that is the pillar of all things good and groovy in today's onslaught of fusion.” ~ JR Richards, Jambase

“The Boston Horns... have been burning up stages with high-energy, hard-grooving funk since 1999. Whitfield is a rock and soul legend. Together, they should be an unstoppable force.” ~ J.C. Lockwood, North Shore Sunday
