Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears are one of my favorite blues/soul bands out there because frankly, there are not too many that are still around today with how the music industry has evolved. They have a retro appeal much like Fitz & The Tantrums and a little bit like The Black Keys but specifically have sound a bit like James Brown and carry some of his swagger as well.
My brother saw them open up for Passion Pit last year and even though Black Joe Lewis hasn’t released new music since 2009, when they released an four song EP and then in March 2009 released their debut album, Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is!
Their album is a must buy for anybody that is down to have a good time with some soulful rock/blues. Here’s a few reasons why you should buy their album.
Get Yo Shit
Earlier today, Black Joe Lewis released a song on iTunes which is worth checking out as well.
