Review Jane Kope
Stripped down no BS Blues/Rock was alive and well at the Fine Line on Friday August 28th as Dirty Honey brought everything they had and left everyone in the crowd wanting more. Currently on tour supporting their 2021 debut album “California Dreamin’”, Minneapolis was the second stop on a tour.
They ran thru many songs off their debut album as well as “ When I’m gone” from their extended play self-released which put them on the map back in 2019.
Vocalist Marc LaBelle, guitarist John Notto, bass player Justin Smolian and drummer Corey Coverstone send out such an amazing vibe and bring you back to the days of no flash, bluesy Rock N Roll which had people dancing and singing along..even if you had never seen them or heard of them prior to the show. Highlight of the show for me was their cover of “Last Child”. If you closed your eyes for a bit you would swear the year was 1976 and you were sitting at CBGB’s watching the likes of Aerosmith launch. Lucky for us it’s 2022 and we can all say we saw them when they played the “smaller venues”. Dirty Honey is the real deal and can’t wait to see them again.
