TAPING SETLIST

Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears Setlist

Known for creating groovy, soul infused, hits, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears have not only impressed local Austin, but have exploded into the national spotlight. The band brings their blend of raw electric blues, Southern-fried funk and turbocharged punk & roll to the Austin City Limits stage for their first appearance on the show.

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears are the real deal, and represent a revival in powerful, soul music that is both cohesive and artfully crafted. Tonight they are joined by another Texas soul band, The Relatives. After three decades of dormancy, The Relatives have rejoined to resurrect the soulful, Gospel sound that they were known for back in the day. With two of the original vocalists remaining (Tommy and his brother Rev. Gean West), the group gathered its unreleased material, and produced a full-length LP titled Don’t Let Me Fall, which was released in 2009.
