The California Honeydrops will show off their eclectic style at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters.
Digging deep into the roots of American music, The California Honeydrops embrace the traditions of blues, gospel, second line-style New Orleans jazz and early R&B.
Since their formation four years ago in the subway stations of Oakland, The California Honeydrops have completed six European tours, spread musical honey on crowds throughout the U.S., and recorded three full-length albums of original music, all without the help of a record label or, until recently, a major booking agency.
The Honeydrops are fronted by Warsaw-born, Chicago- and D.C.-raised frontman Lech Wierzynski, whose Polish political refugee parents exposed him to large amounts of forbidden — and therefore “cool” — American blues, soul and jazz. In addition to Wierzynski on lead vocals, trumpet and guitar, the Honeydrops are Ben Malament (drums, percussion, vocals, tub bass), Johnny Bones (saxophone, clarinet, vocals), Lorenzo Loera (bass) and Charlie Hickox (keys, vocals).
The California Honeydrops’ show at The Palms Playhouse (13 Main Street in Winters) on Saturday December 7 will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $17 and are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out.
