The California Honeydrops Announce Return to Montana in 2023

R&B/soul rock outfit The California Honeydrops will return to Montana for two concerts in Spring 2023. They’ll perform at The Wilma in Missoula on April 26th and The ELM in Bozeman on April 27th.

The California Honeydrops draw on diverse musical influences from Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line. From humble beginnings busking in an Oakland subway station to headlining international tours, The Honeydrops continue to grow their fanbase with energetic live shows and infectious dance-party vibes. Their concerts feature extensive jamming, improvisation, and crowd interaction.

In 2022, the California Honeydrops celebrate their fourteenth year together with the release of their latest studio album, Soft Spot. Soul and Jazz and Funk positively reviewed the album, stating “The band clearly has a great time in making this record and a good time is guaranteed for all who listen.”

About The California Honedrops

In 2022, the California Honeydrops celebrate their fourteenth year together with the forthcoming release of their latest studio album, Soft Spot. “This record is all about love and good lovin’ and other things that matter,” says frontman, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski of the new LP, which exhibits the Honeydrops’ unique musical style that draws from roots, Bay Area R&B, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second line. “We continued the Honeydrops’ album tradition of bringing special musical guests to bless the studio with their magic,” adds drummer Ben Malament. “Sousaphones, strings, space echoes—it’s all here.” Soft Spot comes on the heels of Covers from the Cave, a cover album born out of pandemic livestream videos; live albums Remember When: Vol. 3 and Honeydrops Live 2019; and their first-ever double-album, Call It Home: Vol 1 & 2, in 2018, which No Depression called “a fun-filled, funky goodie basket for all occasions.”

This year has also brought the Honeydrops’ return to live music with a fall national tour, their first headlining date at Red Rocks, as well as performances at festivals across the country including FloydFest, High Sierra, and Burning Man. Known for bringing vibrant energy and infectious dance-party vibes to their shows, the Honeydrops have taken the party all over the world, touring widely across North America, Europe, and Australia.
