Doris Henson

Saturday, February 11, 8:30 p.m. at the Hi-Pointe (1001 McCausland Avenue)


DeSoto Records denizens Doris Henson have come a long way since sprightly singer-guitarist Matt Dunehoo booked a tour without a band. (They're also surely the only indie-rock band in Kansas City to use a trombone.) The group's music is a blend of pop hooks that roar out of a soft and hypnotically smooth approach. Dunehoo is always on, whether he's working the stage like a pre-stardom Paul McCartney or posing for in-store billboards at Half Price Books, where he still has to work a day job. But with a voice like a perversely reincarnated indie-rock Doris Day, Dunehoo may not have to stock used vinyl much longer.
