Countdown to Bonnaroo – 26 Days – Artist of the Day: Black Joe Lewis

14 May

Holy Bonnaroo! Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears are going to make some new fans. From the first 10 seconds I heard “Sugarfoot” I was hooked as a BJL fan (Funny enough I discovered them while looking up some Donavon Frankenreiter info on the Lost Highways site a few years ago). Anyways, what can I say about this Austin based band except they will blow your minds with a gritty rock show. Having seen them half a dozen times live, they get better every time and are currently touring in support of their new record, Scandalous.


New Music Tuesday: Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears – Scandalous

15 Mar

I love new music Tuesday and today is an extra special one as Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears drop their sophomore effort, Scandalous.  I need to grab the disc and will report back with some thoughts but this should be another winner from the Austin group.  Check out “So Scandalous” below. And if you’re at SXSW be sure to swing on through and see the guys live.

TONIGHT: Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears – Las Vegas Best Be Ready

26 Jan

Today is officially one of the best days in 2011 at least for me as Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears descend on Las Vegas to begin a four-night residency at Book & Stage at Cosmopolitan.  I know I practically live there but you can’t blame me as they are bringing in some amazing groups to perform and let’s just say if you miss out on these Black Joe Lewis performances you are only hurting yourself.

Belting out blues, soul, funk and rock, Black Joe Lewis has the potential to be our modern day James Brown. I know that is a bold statement but come check out the shows and you’ll have to agree.  Having had the pleasure of seeing the group perform in a room of 200 and an arena of 14,000, these guys bring it each and every time and can get a crowd dancing and feeling the groove in no time.

On the verge of releasing their new album Scandalous on March 15, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears will have an arsenal of  sweet music to treat us to for the next four nights.

To get you in the right state of mind, check out one of my favorite tracks, “Sugarfoot” off their album Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is and see you at the Book & Stage.
