The Honeybees - Sweet As Honey - 12/23/99
Lead vocalists Barb Clifford and Lisa Frye's different styles contrast well for the most part: Clifford's is crisp and piercing; Frye's is rich and mellow. In "Crazy Arms", Frye provided the meat of the vocals and Clifford backer her with high harmonies.
Drummer Theresa Drda, rhythm guitarist Mark Linday, lead guitarist Todd Longfellow and stand-up bassist Phil Rainey took a back seat to the singers, keeping the decibels low. The Honeybees plan to record within the next year after they work on more original songs.
Look for the Honeybees over the next few months. If you enjoy roots music and want to practice your swing and jitterbug moves on the dance floor, this band won't disappoint.
