Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears

When: Mon., July 16 2012

Neo-soul artists have been popping up regularly for decades, dating all the way back to when the original soul artists were still neo. And when it comes to Colorado Springs, their destination of choice is the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave.,, which has already played host to the talents of Fitz & the Tantrums, Allen Stone and JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. Now comes one of the best of the new breed, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, an eight-piece, Austin-based outfit that brings to mind a latter-day James Brown or Wilson Pickett fronting a horn-driven, punk-inflected soul band. Catch them for $12 in advance, $14 at the door at this 8 p.m. all-ages show that's bound to be one of the most outrageous funk-soul celebrations of the summer. — Bill Forman
