Ripping guitar solos, catchy horn licks and powerful vocals, HONEY WILD is funk rock with an attitude.
The band is the brain-child of singer-songwriter HANA DENSON, whose early performance background and musical taste includes classical, musical theater, rock, pop, and jazz. In 2011, she did a 4-year stint as a resident of New Orleans, where, heavily influenced by the active Blues, Jazz and Funk scene, she began writing her own tunes. Her lyrics describe personal experiences with a mixture of borderline-uncomfortable-honesty, sass and humor.
The band's core includes STEVE BARE (bass, guitar, vocals), CHRISTIAN LOPEZ (drums, vocals), NICK MARZULLO (bass, guitar, keys), and NIKO ARENA (guitar). A three-piece horn section adds excitement to studio and larger-venue performances.
Over the past five years, HONEY WILD has been featured in prominent venues throughout New York City and New Jersey, including: The State Theatre New Jersey, Asbury Lanes, The Saint, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Arlene’s Grocery, and more.
In 2023, HONEY WILD released a two song live EP and two singles, 'Strange & Distant, and 'Sweat on the Brain', a 5 song EP will follow in November. The band has plans for another 5 song release in 2024.
