Formed in Austin, Texas in 2007 the retro-blues soul band Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears began after lead-singer Joe Lewis picked up a guitar at a pawn shop. Heavily influenced by James Brown and Howlin' Wolf, Lewis played around town before getting the attention of locals Spoon and Okkervil River.
Spoon's drummer, Jim Eno, ended up producing their debut release "Tell 'Em What Your Name Is!" Their follow up album "Scandalous" was released in March 2011.
Songs performed: "Black Snake," "You Been Lyin'," and "Living in the Jungle."
