Continuing the trend of taking a cool vintage style and laying in a heavy dose of bad assery, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears have created something straight from a James Brown wet dream. Their debut album, “Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is”, released on March 17th, is a full-tilt groove-laden boogie down production of old vs new including funky originals and some obscure blues covers. They are currently on a nationwide tour that ends in a series of Pac NW shows. One here in Seattle on May 22 at the Tractor, one in Vancouver BC, and one at the Wild Buffalo in B-HAm in the 24th. For a full taste of the album check their Myspace. For a dose of the live isht check the vid below! Good Gawd Aaawmighty!
