âItâs his life, but itâs your story!â

âOne Hit Wandererâ is a âOne Man Theatrical Productionâ written and performed by veteran singer, songwriter, recording artist, actor and comedian Henry Gross. This CD is a collection of all the original songs that appear in the show, produced by Henry Gross with full band arrangements. The songs on the CD cover every genre of music that influenced Henry in his 47 year professional career and includes the original 1976 hit version of âShannonâ produced by Terry Cashman and Tommy West.

On the surface the show is an autobiographical look back at the trials and tribulations of a life spent pursuing the âRock & Roll Dream.â A closer look reveals a story of perseverance, hope and commitment that make it a roller coaster ride of laughs, tears, disappointments and triumphs.

Born on April Fools, 1951, in Brooklyn, New York, Henry began playing clubs at age thirteen with his first band. Before long he was performing at the 1964 Worldâs Fair and spending summers singing at Catskill Mountain resorts.

Encouraged by his mom, a gifted musician and Gil Hodges, the all-star first baseman of The Brooklyn Dodgers who lived in the neighborhood, Henryâs career soared to amazing heights when, in 1969, during his first semester at Brooklyn College, he co-founded the 1950âs Rock & Roll revival band âSha Na Naâ and that summer became the youngest performer at âThe Woodstock Festivalâ.

Leaving the group to record on his own, he made over a dozen critically acclaimed albums for the most prestigious labels in the world highlighted by his classic A&M Records LP, âPlug Me Into Somethingâ in 1975.

In 1976, he received a gold record for his worldwide, chart topping, hit âShannonâ, a song inspired by the death of Beach Boyâs lead singer Carl Wilsonâs Irish Setter!

Heâs shared the stage with some of the greatest artists in Rock & Roll history; Aerosmith, The Beach Boys, Billy Joel, The Byrds, Bruce Springsteen, Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Huey Lewis, Hall & Oates, Felix Cavaliereâs Rascals, and The Kinks, to name a few.

As an actor, he starred in the road company of the Broadway hit âPump Boys and Dinettesâ with the legendary Nicolette Larson (âItâs Gonna Take A Lot Of Loveâ) and his dear friend Jonathan Edwards (âSunshineâ).

For the past six years, as well as performing his singer/ songwriter and band shows, Henry has been performing "One Hit Wanderer", a ninety minute musical, autobiographical theatrical production. This show is a guaranteed joy for people of all ages. A theatrical trailer can be seen on his website

In addition, over the past several years Henry has been recording in Ft. Myers, FL with multi talented engineer/instrumentalist John McLane producing the CD's: âOne Hit Wandererâ, âForeverlandâ, and his latest: "Rhymes and Misdemeanors" and "Right As Rain". The two new ones have twenty one new recordings on each and are guaranteed to delight fans of world class songwriting and musicianship! Henry makes these "Double albums" to offer his fans the greatest value possible at an extremely affordable price.

One Hit Wanderer
Zelda Records

Henry Grossâ 2001 release, Iâm Hearing Things, was one of the most pleasant musical surprises of the past 10 years. Now heâs back with a set of songs from a one-man show that highlights his career in music. There are 17 tunes, two of which are ringers. Youâll find the original versions of âShannonâ and the wonderful âMama Whoâs Gonna Rockâ here, but other than that, itâs Gross playing a lot of instruments, singing wonderfully, and negotiating a trip through his musical career.

For those unaware, Gross was an original member of Sha Na Na. That influence shows up on several cuts here. The boogie of âHe Canât Holâ Stillâ and the doo-wop of âYou Found Me Outâ are treats. âSix OâClockâ is a â50s stomper that would make Little Richard proud. The ballad âIf You Donât Believe In Meâ is the perfect opportunity for Gross to display his voice. It also features a metallic electric-guitar solo that is pure melodic heaven. Several cuts, like âItâs the Moneyâ are horn-driven rock that would sound good on radio, if only pop stations had any sense. It also features some biting lead guitar from a guy who can really play, but never lets the guitar get in the way of a good song. âSleeping My Way to the Topâ is a hysterical, somewhat skewed look at the music business, opening with a quote from âI Heard it Through the Grapevine,â and wrapping with a perfect Stephen Stills imitation of the opening of âSuite: Judy Blue Eyes.â In between is a guy trying, but not quite making it. And âWhat You Dream,â one of the highlights from Iâm Hearing Things, makes an appearance at the end here, as well. Grossâ music is good, old-fashioned pop and rock-and-roll. âJH
