Watermelon Music’s “all-star band,” The Honeybadgers, will be back this week at Thursday Live! Opening Thursday’s dance concert at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis, will be The Twanglers.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. in the newly remodeled upstairs hall. All Thursday Live! shows are free and open to all ages. All donations go directly to the musicians.

The Honeybadgers play a mix of blues-based music, including rhythm and blues. Band members are:

* Jeff Simons, owner of Watermelon Music, on bass and vocals. He has played with Anton Barbeau, Bill Scholer, !Akimbo, Linda Book and various bands over the past two decades.

* Ron Cowden, owner of Watermelon Music, on guitar and vocals. Cowden grew up in Davis, and has played in various bands locally since the late 1970s, including Roommates, Weird Harold, Bill Scholer and Biscuits and Honey.

* Leo Adamian, drum department manager at Watermelon Music, on drums. A New York native, he played and recorded professionally there. Remember the “Piña Colada” song? That’s Adamian on drums.

* Scott Morris, guitar instructor at Watermelon Music, on guitar and vocals. Morris was raised in Sacramento and has played with various bands from the Sacramento and Bay areas.

* Al Qahhar, a longtime customer at the music store, on guitar. Qahhar has been a guitar student of Morris’ for the past several years, concentrating on blues guitar.

The Twanglers are a new ensemble composed of old and new friends. They call their sound Neo-Americana-Euro-Latin-Blues Fusion. Members are Jan Peters on mandolin, harmonicas and vocals; Al Vasquez on percussion and vocals; Sean Feder on percussion; Don Bassey on bass and vocals; and Don Fox on finger-style telecaster and vocals.

Upcoming Thursday Live! shows will feature The Rita Hosking Trio, Misner & Smith, Biscuits and Honey and Hardwater.
