Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears: “Handshake Drugs” (Wilco Cover)

Posted by on Jul 5, 2019

If you tend to keep your dial on 98.9FM, you’ll already know Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears. They’re no stranger to Studio 1A or our airwaves thanks to the fearless frontman‘s drive towards perfection on guitar and vocals. Lewis’ perky, irreverent, but endearing blend of blues-funk-soul is great on its own but with the fiery horn arrangements and added energy in the room, catching Joe with his Honeybears is such a treat.

KUTX presents Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears and Emily Wolfe next Saturday at the Mohawk and we’re betting on some new tunes from the gang somewhere off in the horizon. The band put out two albums last year, one live and one in-studio, the latter of which features a fresh spin on a Wilco classic, “Handshake Drugs”!
