What’s the Buzz?
What’s that Buzz you’re hearing? It’s the sweet sounds of the Honey Bees! Equal parts 30’s era Jazz, Western Swing, Folk-Rock and oddball Americana, the Bees mix it all up with flair, fun and a hint of mischief. Standards, favorites and chestnuts are equally delivered with the original music of chanteuse Mary Fagan, who also keeps time and tone on her acoustic guitar. Guitarist Chris O’Neill colors the nectar with sassy chording on a hollow-body jazzbox and nimble runs on the Fender Telecaster. Holding it down low on the “big” bass, Jock Irvine keeps it cool and swinging while enhancing the mix with casual back up vocals. Occasionally, the groovy one, drummer Ed Raczka, buzzes in to kick it up a notch and make it sizzle. Venues all over New England are coming alive to the sounds and vibe of this sweet swarm so check your calendars and save the dates!
