Amoeba Music is on the scene at the 56th annual Monterey Jazz Festival with our mini-Amoeba tent full of great deals and amazing signings with some of the festival's best musicians. Friday night was a blast with signings from Roberto Fonseca, Gregory Porter, and Snarky Puppy, and today (Saturday) has been epic indeed as we got to sit down for signing with The California Honeydrops, baritone sax player Claire Daly, and Big Sam's Funky Nation. Later tonight, we'll welcome The Relatives and Ravi Coltrane!
Digging deep into the roots of American music, The California Honeydrops embrace the traditions of blues, gospel, Second line New Orleans jazz, and early R&B. Plus, they're a hilarious bunch. We captured some of the fun on video:
When we caught up with Claire Daly and North Coast Brewing's Doug Moody, we discussed Baritone Monk, which was released by North Coast Brewing in October of 2012.
The high energy performance of urban funk band Big Sam's Funky Nation was followed by a high energy appearance at the Amoeba tent!
