“The California Honeydrops...evoke the greasy rumble of Booker T and channel the spiritual ecstasy of Sly and the Family Stone.”-Rolling Stone Formed in the subway systems of Oakland, retro-soul outfitThe California Honeydropsare anelectrifying group that defy convention at every turn. They’ve become a mainstay at festivals includingByron Bay Bluesfest (Australia), Outside Lands, Monterey Jazz, Lightning In A Bottle, and touring withB.B. King, Dr. John, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, and Allen Toussaint. Led by the enigmatic and energeticfrontman,Lech Wierzynski, and drummerBenjamin Malament, each member of the band is a virtuosoin their own rite—Yanos “Johnny Bones” Lustigon saxophone,Lorenzo Loera on keyboards/guitar,Beaumont Beaullieuon bass, and regularly accompanied byScott Messersmithon percussion,OliverTuttleon trombone,Leon Cotteron saxophone/clarinet, andMiles Lyonson trombone/sousaphone—navigating through a vast repertoire of original songs and timeless classics every night. But what trulysets them apart is their unwavering commitment to the art of improvisation-a skill so finely honed thatthey have completely abandoned the use of set lists and no two shows are ever the same. Off stage, theirmusic has been streamed more than 200 million times, and placed in a variety of TV and films, including“Dead To Me,” “Alaska Daily,” “Black-ish” and more. They are currently touring North America in supportof their new deluxe album, 'Soft Spot'.
