Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears

April 3, 2009



Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears is an 8-piece soul/blues band out of Austin that will kick your ass with hi-octane tunes reminiscent of Little Richard and James Brown.  Joe Lewis attacks the mic with fits of urgency and The Honeybears bring it with a tight horn section, janglin’ guitars and nimble, prominent bass lines.  Think Daptones on a coke binge.  A total throwback. 

Their current tour skips New York (?) but I’ve got a feeling they’ll be here before long.  Don’t be surprised to see them as a late addition on the festival circuit as hype about their live show continues to spread.  Their major label debut, Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is!, is available here.  Two tracks below.  Current tour dates after the jump.m_6a23abc4edec46c5bf1c2f027639232a
