Honey Pie Jones is a multi-genre no holes barred, spontaneous band of gypsies, artists, and characters. Our genre defying music can take you from the rawest low-down and dirty gut bucket blues, sophisticated jazz, seductive soul, nasty funk and everything in between. We've been known to surprise even the most jaded audience members. Honey Pie Jones has been playing the L.A. scene for a while under several different iterations and names. We're a band that is constantly evolving.
Currently the lineup features Lianne Ward on lead vocals and keys, John Abella on guitar, vocals, and keys, Simon Hancock on drums, and Kevin McPherson on bass. We are constantly updating our song list in order to keep the whole performance fresh, fun and spontaneous. we've been known to forego our set list and start creating a jam based on audience participation. Come on out and witness pure unfiltered, unedited and authentic music performed right before your very eyes. We are playing in the local Los Angeles area quite often, so don't miss out on all of the fun!
Honey Pie Jones is a band of ragtag misfit skilled mercenaries. Each member has their own unique background and story to tell. The various stories and diversity helps to create our own unique sound. Our sound is constantly changing and growing. Through our live performance and spontaneity, we build our whole vibe and repertoire. We can and will do everything and anything. Every performance is played as if it is our last. It is almost if as we take you, the audience, on a musical journey, where we eventually will climb right up to the edge, dangle over for a minute and jump right off!
Did I happen to mention that we also host a burlesque show as well? We've been working alongside of dancers for years now. Not only will the music by itself floor you, BUT, there's also an incredible visual aspect of our burlesque shows. We play with some of the best dancers in the business. If I were to post everyone's resume on this here website, I would never get the chance to use my own words and tell you that the shows we do with the dancers is a thing of beauty and something to truly behold. But don't take my word for it. Come on out and see for yourself
