Black Joe does Daytrotter

Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears were recently featured on Daytrotter, offering up four live studio cuts from their self-titled album and an unreleased cover of a Junior Wells original. Here's an except from the article:
"It’s merely an extension of the raw and just plain honest music of Joe Lewis and his Memphis-flavored band of guitar, horn and pianah players. This band of merry – and lascivious – young men have the scent of last night’s woman or women, a whole carton of smoked Camels, a boozy romp and lived in clothing – coming out of their amplifiers and speakers."
Check out one of the funky fried tunes from their Daytrotter session below, then hit the link for more. Ben Kweller is there, too. Get on the bus.
