The California Honeydrops

Don’t let the Sunshine State moniker fool you: The California Honeydrops hail from the Bay Area but sound like they rose out of the Louisiana bayou, with strong Dr. John and Nevilles influences along with a touch of the Radiators’ slow-jammy groove. Bandleader Lech Wierzynski studied trumpet under Ray Charles sideman Marcus Belgrave and enlists tub bass, washboard and other grubby grooves here. Chris Riemenschneider
