Concerts at the Cadillac: the California Honey Drops

by Paul Hogarth on March 25, 2009

Join us at 12:30 p.m. this Friday, March 27th at the Cadillac Hotel — where our performers will be the California Honey Drops. From roots and blues to R&B and soul, the Honeydrops’ sound feature unique instrumentation, soulful vocal harmonies and a funky, good-times New Orleans style. Playfully crossing genres from roots and blues to R&B and soul, the California Honeydrops’ sound is tied together by their unique instrumentation, soulful vocal harmonies, and a funky, good-times New Orleans style. The Honeydrops’ unusual instruments include a home-made gutbucket bass, jug, and washboard. Their greasy down-home rhythms are punctuated by joyous blasts of trumpet, rollicking piano riffs, and passionate bluesy vocals. The only band of its kind, The California Honeydrops’ live shows have quickly gained a reputation as the best party in the Bay Area.

“Concerts at the Cadillac” is a monthly series of Friday noontime concerts — featuring the Patricia Walkup Memorial Piano, an 1884 Steinway Concert Grand. The Cadillac Hotel is at 380 Eddy Street (@ Leavenworth), and the concert is free of charge. Ten lucky audience members who stick around for the whole program will win a free CD at the end of the show.
