‘Modern Music For Modern People’ is a concept album about Mista Twista and his interactions in the world in 2020. He is a quirky man who enjoys the quiet life working in his barbershop and has brilliant stories to tell of his adventures and travels. In Act 1 he is transformed from barber to celebrity when his band hits the big time only to fins himself surrounded by the perils of modern life – the internet, selfies and politicians. After a brief intermission...... Act 2 begins – he starts feeling the pressure of modern life but aside from that, the oceans start rising and Armageddon strikes the world. At the end of the album the only two people left on the earth is Mista Twista and his lover all alone serenading each other trying to survive to live to fight another day.

Steve Hensby Band are splitting at the seams with an assault to the musical senses with elements of funk, soul, ska, world, a sprinkle of psychedelia and a dash of folk. The 8-piece ensemble features a healthy sized horn section and is very danceable!
