With 2 self released CD's in one year, this band is paving the road for quite a musical career. Their first release on January 19th, 2007 "The Nouveaux Honkies" was named best roots-music CD by the Palm Beach Post and saw great reviews worldwide. The CD covered a spectrum of blues and R&B classics. The second release of the all original CD "Where Do I Go" hit the market on January 25th, 2008. This combined with over 200 dates in the year of 2007 and competing in the International Blues Challenge in both 2007 and 2008 would make some wonder where they get the energy. They say, "We haven't even started." With another album planned for release in the summer of 2008, which they say "will be quite a surprise" and plans for entertaining "anyone, anywhere, anytime," it is easy to see why they win over fans everywhere they perform. Their 2008 IBC performance saw quotes from people who caught their set that read.
"The Nouveaux Honkies imaginative originals are well-conceived interpretations of blues and R&B classics. They have a matchless sound and perform a blistering show with their futuristic approach to music that nevertheless retains an authentic American style. With fluid guitar work, reverent vocals and a haunting violin, this deep rhythm section is a discovery of the year." by Dusty Scott, Modern Guitars Magazine, Feb 2, 2008
"I was floored. I really do like your sound and presentation. (I love the tough elegance of the tattoos and evening dress!) It goes with the tough elegance of your music." T-Bone Erickson, founding editor of BluesWax, contributor to Blues Review.
"For me, the hottest band there was the Nouveaux Honkies. Were they blues, bop, swing? Don't know but they got me out of my seat." Anonymous fan at the IBC from Lexington, Blindman Blues Forum
"All I can say is that I caught their set Friday night and my jaw literally hit the floor. I don't know how "bluesy" they were perceived to be, but their live show was one of the most frenzied, energetic and enjoyable displays of mayhem I've ever seen. I had to give em' a standing "o", along with most of the audience at Alfred's." Anonymous fan from central Kentucky, Blindman Blues Forum.
