The New Parish – Oakland

One of Oakland’s finest, The California Honeydrops took over The New Parish last Thursday and were greeted by an enthusiastic hometown crowd for the first of two sold-out nights. In fact, this was the first time I have seen a line wrapped around the block to see a band at the East Bay venue.

The California Honeydrops are touring in support of their latest release A River’s Invitation, an album that is well worth a listen … or 10. Next time they come back to the Bay Area, be sure to buy your ticket early for an amazing evening of music.

Hailing from Brooklyn by way of Hawaii, experimental soul artist Deva Mahal, the daughter of longtime blues musician Taj Mahal (born Henry Saint Clair Fredericks), opened the show.
