There’s a New Party in Town
Honeyboy is back with a new style of blues band, with surprises and fun at every gig. Honeyboy’s House Party is what the new band will be called.
What’s so special?
Some of the best blues musicians in town will be joining the House Party at each gig.
The band will be 4 pieces (see below) with a different fifth piece each gig. Sometimes it will be a harp player, sometimes a sax player, and sometimes another guitarist. You might even see a special vocalist come in and join the party. You never know who’s going to show up! Honeyboy’s House Party will be new and fresh every time. You might even see some additional invited guests join the party.
The Core Band
Rick Honeyboy Hart – Guitar
Rick has been playing for more than 40 years. He’s played with The Bluescorchers, RockBottom, Nitro’s Blues Machine, The Roger Salloom Band, and of course many of his own bands.
Rick Curran – Keyboards
Rick has been playing around the area for many years. He’s known as the B3 man, cause he brings his Hammond B3 and Leslie speaker to every gig. Not many keyboard players do that anymore. You can’t beat that authentic B3 sound. Rick also plays with the Doobie Brothers cover band, China Grove.
Jeff Avrin – Bass
Jeff is Mr. Solid when it comes to the role of holding down the bottom of The House Party. Think of him as the foundation. Jeff has played with many bands over the years and currently plays with The Charlie Morris Band, The Gearz, Walker Smith Group and others.
Eric Elsner – Drums
Eric is one of the great young drummer around. He is always in demand and Honeyboy is lucky to have him in the fold. He has played with many bands in town including T.C. Carr and the Bolts of Blue, The Charlie Morris Band, and many others.
The Mystery Guest
This “player to be named later” will be different at each Party. Sometimes it will be longtime “Mississippi Saxaphonist” Earl the Pearl. Sometimes it will be a sax player. And sometimes it will be another guitarist or singer. Someone new and interesting each gig.
One thing you can be sure of… it will be one of the best players in the area and they will help take The Party to a whole new level.
To get an idea what this band will sound like, here’s Honeyboy’s live CD, Live From The Hive. Many of the players on that CD will be featured at Honeyboy’s House Party.
