Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears Is a Rock, Blues and Funk Cocktail 

Wednesday, July 11, at Alive After Five

Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears is known for its soul-baring lyrics, which cover everything from breakups and hookups to revenge and redemption. But the lyrics are backed by a cocktail of rock 'n' roll, blues and funk influences gleaned from the band's hometown music scene: Austin, Texas.

Lewis jumped into playing music when he pulled a guitar off the wall at a pawn shop where he was working, hoping to get out of the daily grind.

A few years later, after struggling to be heard and working on his chops, Lewis formed The Honeybears, named after a crusted jar of honey on the band's rehearsal room floor.

The seven-member group has stayed true to its unique style, dubbed "a churning slab of rock 'n' roll, blues and funk, laced with a double shot of 100-proof punkitude."
