The California Honeydrops

The California Honeydrops don’t just play music—they throw parties. Led by dynamic vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski, the band draws on diverse musical influences including roots, Bay Area R&B, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second line to bring vibrant energy to their shows. Assembling their five core members plus two to three more world-class musicians each show, the Honeydrops deliver an eclectic performance and innovative recording style, evident in the seven studio albums, three live albums, and two cover albums the band has released since forming in 2008. Their highly anticipated forthcoming LP, Soft Spot, is set to release in the fall of 2022, coinciding with a national tour.

AJ Lee & Blue Summit

AJ Lee & Blue Summit

AJ Lee and Blue Summit made their first appearance in Santa Cruz in 2015. Led by
singer, songwriter, and mandolinist, AJ Lee, the bluegrass band has performed all over
the world, but finds home in California’s Bay Area.

The latest full length project, I’ll Come Back, debuted August 2021 - with national touring
in support of the record ongoing. Although falling loosely under the bluegrass label,
AJLBS generally plays sans banjo, with Sullivan Tuttle and Scott Gates on steel stringed
acoustic guitars, AJ on mandolin, Jan Purat on fiddle, and Chad Bowen on upright bass -
a configuration effectively used to create unique space and texture in the arrangements
not as commonly found in the music of their peers. Drawing from influences such as
country, soul, swing, rock, and jam music, the band uses the lens of bluegrass as a
vessel through which to express and explore the thread that binds and unifies all great
music.

“AJ Lee & Blue Summit are pure, beautiful American music. Soaring harmonies, top notch
picking and strumming as well as a healthy respect and reverence for the classic country,
bluegrass and folk music of the past all add up to a band who are masters of the genre. That’s
not to say that AJ Lee & Blue Summit are antiquated in anyway. While the band tips a hat to the

American masters of the past, their sound is modern and thoroughly of today. The band are
great torch bearers of the music that helped build America. ”
