CL's Hal Horowitz Recommends: This horn enhanced West Coast outfit leans towards upbeat New Orleans music as they mix jazz, blues and soul into a compelling concoction that has rightly attracted an enthusiastic cult audience over the years. Their shows are one big soulful party where the audience is as much a part of the performance as the band. Leave your troubles behind for a few hours and dance the blues away with the Honeydrops’ frisky, intoxicating music. — HH

Assembling from 7 to 8 musicians, the band delivers an eclectic performance and innovative recording style. Since 2008, the Honeydrops have released 7 studio albums, 3 live albums and 2 cover albums. Their forthcoming album is set to release in the late summer of 2022.
