California Honeydrops

BRIAN PALMER

Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[BRASS BAND JAZZ] Sounding like the kind of band you would hear on Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland, the California Honeydrops are more than just a brass band that makes upbeat music. And don’t call them a ragtime or Dixieland jazz band, either. That would sell them short. What they are is a band that fuses gospel, R&B, blues and second-line New Orleans jazz that gives you the time of your life. This is the sort of stuff you might hear at a funeral procession when the deceased has requested the day be a celebration of life rather than a mourning of death. The Honeydrops will make the brokenhearted rejoice and the despairing feel hopeful again, and God knows you can never have too much of that.
