The California Honeydrops have an old school sound that appeals to audience members of all ages. People young and old are swing dancing at Lincoln Hall tonight to their blues/soul/indie rock vibe. In a tribute to the band starting off their career busking at a BART station, they all step to the front of the stage and play “Pumpkin Pie” acoustically. It’s a short and sweet song so well written that it seems like you’ve know it all your life.
Later on, they play When It Was Wrong to the crowds delight. They extend the song to over 10 minutes by including call and response with the audience and long improvised solos. It’s an interactive delight that creates a great party atmosphere. Towards the end of the night, the band unplugs again and walks into the audience playing the whole way. It has that New Orleans feel of a band playing on the street which is very exciting to be a part of. See them live on tour this fall for an unforgettable experience.
