This five-piece juggernaut rips through genres like a bag of Party Mix. One only has to listen to their 2012 debut CD “B-Hive Radio” to hear that the comparison to any one band would be difficult.
A perfect example is artfully combining Hip Hop, Reggae and Drum N’ Bass all in one song (“Heart Attack”) which showcases the band’s eclectic musical tastes. This mix is displayed in their original songs, as well as in their interpretations of other artists’ material spanning hip hop, funk, jazz, rock, and even a little country.
Within all of the above, they fulfill their mandate of incorporating scorching solos and extended jams.
Lyrically, Buzy B’s words are nothing but the truth, telling stories of her personal struggles and joys, life in East Van, and the world as she sees it.
Musically, The Honeycomb Kids combine the forces of Dennis “The Doctor” Chan hammering out funky beats and samples, Matt Creed laying the bass frequencies through mean rock poses, Sean “Fultone” Fulton sending harmelodic impetus from the keys, and Dave “Shreddies For Breakfast” Pearson slaying with a six string assault.
Buzy B and the Honeycomb Kids are becoming increasingly known for their animated stage show, whilst taking the audience on a complex musical journey. Live performances incorporate multiple costume changes; each costume change reflects the many themes and moods of the music.
On top of incendiary live performances in their hometown of Vancouver BC, (including This Is Strathcona Festival), the band has made impressions elsewhere. For example, after playing their first show on Hornby Island, they were quickly adopted as “Hornby Island Famous”, which is a term the savvy locals take quite seriously.
Their recent performance in Iqaluit, Nunavut to help close the 2012 Canada Day weekend Alianait Festival “...totally energized...” and “...had folks up and dancing around the room throughout their set.” The festival organizers remarked that “...Iqaluit audiences had never experi- enced a band like this before, and they totally loved them!”
Buzy B and The Honeycomb Kids remain busy (as in Buzy) continuing to craft new material and are always ready to rock.
