It has been wonderful to be back on the road with Bonnie Raitt this past few weeks. We have been humbled by the opportunity to share the stage with her. Catch our final shows with her this Saturday in New Orleans and next Tuesday in Austin and our own headlining shows next week in DC, Philly, and NYC

We would like to give a big THANK YOU to those that participated in our Hurricane Matthew Relief Fundraiser! Together, we raised over $6500 to support relief efforts in Haiti and Cuba.  Small efforts like this make a BIG difference in those communities!

We will continue our Hurricane Matthew relief fundraising next week by donating net proceeds from our Austin show to Hurricane Relief in the Carolinas.

hurricane-relief-postTomorrow we’re beginning a national tour opening for Bonnie Raitt! We’re very excited to announce that at this weekend’s sold out concerts in Phoenix and Albuquerque, both Bonnie and the Honeydrops will donate net proceeds from merchandise sales to humanitarian relief efforts in Haiti and Cuba (later on in the tour, we will do this again to help support recovery efforts in the Southeast US). Information on the beneficiary organizations are below. 

Even if you won’t be at the shows this weekend, YOU can join us in this effort and encourage other artists to do the same! Please SPREAD the word to your favorite artists and bands.  If we come together, we can make a difference. Every little bit helps!
