Honeyboys performed at the Bottlerock Napa Valley Music Festival over Memorial Day weekend, marking their first major festival performance. It was notable as members of the band are indigenous to the area and performed in front of many friends and family who were in attendance – lead singer Ari Eisenberg from Napa, drummer Matt Sato from San Carlos California, and saxophonist Nathan Stanley from Walnut Creek, while guitarist Reese Garnder hails from Boston and keyboardist Grady Gallagher from Germany. The five-piece was founded in San Luis Obispo, California in the fall of 2019 by Eisenberg and Gardner while still in school and quickly became known for their energetic live shows and their infectious blend of rock, funk, and soul. Merging influences ranging from Jacob Collier, Vulfpeck, John Mayer, The 1975 and Dominic Fike to Nirvana, Slush Puppy and Pink Floyd, they released their debut EP, “Grapevine” was released in 2020 to critical acclaim, enabling them to tour throughout California. Their first full-length album, “Maple Blue” was released a year later and elevated their profile even higher as they opened for artists such as Mt. Joy, Still Woozy, and Phoebe Bridgers. The band just released the video for their song “Come on Over” and are already planning their second full-length.
