Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears

Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears

This eight piece band, led by the irrepressible Joe Lewis, has come storming out of Austin, Texas with their latest CD, “Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is.” Esquire Magazine listed Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears as one of the “ten bands to break out at 2009’s South by South West festival”. With groovy guitars, sexy horns, raw up-tempo rhythms and a ball of energy guiding them centre stage with a voice that recalls James Brown, Oddis Redding and Lightnin‘ Hopkins. The Honeybears’ rhythm section knows how to lay down a wicked groove and plays together as a unit instead of seeking individual glory. Their groove is deep and fierce and this stew is really beginning to simmer.
