How do you describe the indescribable? On paper, The Honorifics shouldn't work: Punk guitarists don't team up with delicate lead players and scions of jazz legends to do accoustic-electric pop, do they? Yes! Each member of The Honorifics comes to the group from very different backgrounds, with very different influences, each bringing that certain "something." And work it does: Their debut album, "!YAY!," is a testament to the enduring power of fun! It is both sparkling and unexpected. "!YAY!" is an irresistible collection of pop-gems that will have you singing along in no time. It is the most fun you can have in forty-one minutes!

If the name Corea sounds familiar, it should: Thaddeus is the son of jazz-legend Chick Corea. While he often refers to himself as a drummer, his bass playing has been the foundation for artists as diverse as Blue Man Group and Wild Colonials. He is also owner of the coolest recording studio in Las Vegas: Jaguar Recording Studio. Thaddeus' musical interests and tastes run the gamut; hence his interest in The Honorifics.
