Dance the night away Saturday at The Palms

By From page A9 | February 03, 2012

The California Honeydrops and Arann Harris & The Farm Band will bring their fun, vibrant and danceable music to The Palms Playhouse in Winters on Saturday.

Digging deep into the roots of American music, The California Honeydrops embrace the traditions of blues, gospel, New Orleans jazz and early R&B. With stellar performances of traditional material as well as their own innovative music, The California Honeydrops get people out of their seats and onto the floor, dancing, sweating and singing along.

Since their formation four years ago in the subway stations of Oakland, The California Honeydrops have completed six European tours, spread honey on crowds throughout the United States, and recorded two full-length albums of original music, all without the help of a record label or major booking agency.

Their secret? An irresistible sound that blends the energy and intimacy of a street performance, undeniable talent and musicianship, and the soul and fervor of a spiritual street parade.

Playing first is Arann Harris & The Farm Band from Petaluma. Harris and the band play danceable original and traditional blues, jazz and up-tempo roots music.

The show begins at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at The Palms, 13 Main St. in Winters. Tickets are $15, available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland and Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters. Tickets also will be sold at the door, if available.

For more information, call (530) 795-1825 or visit palmsplayhouse.com, cahoneydrops.com and reverbnation.com/arannharrisfarmband.
