A harmonious musical expression
The California Honeydrops had their start in 2007, busking on the streets and at subway stations in the Oakland Bay Area where they quickly gathered a passionate local following because of their unusual sound. Instruments like a home-made gutbucket bass and washboard are played in vibrant harmony with saxophone, guitar, keyboard and drums. Lead singer and guitarist Lech Wierzynski, who started playing blues and jazz in his native country Poland, arrived in the US as a teenager. After studying trumpet, he moved from Washington D.C. to Oakland to start his own musical career. He soon met percussionist Ben Malament to form the California Honeydrops. More musicians joined the band, with Johnny Bones on the tenor saxophone and clarinet, Lorenzo Loera on the keyboard and melodyhorn, as well as Beau Bradbury on the bass and percussion. Synonymous with their beginnings when they played at subway stations, they named their debut album "Soul Tub!", which was released in 2008. That album was soon followed in 2010 by their second creation "Spreadin’ Honey". Three more albums and their first tours followed until 2016 when they opened Bonnie Raitt at the spring and autumn concerts of her US Tour. In 2018, they released their first double album "Call it Home 1 & 2". You can now buy or sell your California Honeydrops tickets right here at StubHub.
California Honeydrops touring worldwide
From the very start, California Honeydrops took their music live to their fans and soon-to-be fans. The concerts often feel very much like their jamming sessions in the subway stations, as they interact directly with the crowds from the stage. Early on, they toured in Wierzynski’s home country Poland as well as Germany and The Netherlands. In between, they toured extensively in the US, but soon ventured out as far away as Australia. The gigs are just as colourfully mixed as their music, and they have regularly performed at their own headlining concerts, music festivals and open airs. Is the jazzy blues your favourite music? Then you might also like artists and bands such as Jerron Blind Boy Paxton and Leftover Salmon. Get your California Honeydrops tickets now at StubHub.
