Honey Don't is the musical union of Bill Powers and Shelley Gray, perhaps better known as one half of the Paonia, Colorado based old time-bluegrass band, Sweet Sunny South.
Their music is acoustic and based in the folk tradition. They draw from their bluegrass and old-time background but also inject some country, blues and a little swing. The songs are catchy and engaging, funny, sad, lonesome and uplifting. Most of the songs are original, but select covers and traditional tunes are part of their repertoire as well.
Bill describes himself as a writer first and foremost and all the while that Bill has been writing songs for SSS and otherwise, Shelley has been right there by his side working out arrangements and adding her bass and smiling voice to the mix. Honey Don't is the harmonious result of their long-time partnership. Bill and Shelleys comfort on stage and with one another creates an endearing vibe that comes shining through the music. The term "laid back" has come up often in describing that sound. Many of the songs have a wonderful sweetness and dreaminess to them but some get right down and rock too so there is something for everyone's tastes.
High Mountain Hayfever A Prarie Home Companion, Boulder and Fox Theaters, The Durango Meltdown, Four Corners Folk Festival, Moab Folk Festival, Rockygrass, Silverton Jubilee, Flagstaff's Pickin in the Pines, Wintergrass in Tacoma WA and many, many more. These folks are pros and know how to entertain and although Honey Don't is a new group on the scene the individuals know their way around the craft.
