Honeydrop Hometown Throwdown 

When: Thu., June 5, 7:30 p.m. and Fri., June 6, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $15, $20
The California Honeydrops have come a long way from the days when Lech Wierzynkski and Ben Malament played obscure, old-timey, handmade instruments at local BART stations. Since then, the band — which now also includes Johnny Bones on tenor sax and clarinet, Lorenzo Loera on keyboards, and Beau Bradbury on bass — has completed nine European tours, performed at major festivals such as Outside Lands, and released four albums. But the self-described “party band” still sounds as humble, down-to-earth, and dedicated to exploring the vast spectrum of American roots music — a unique blend of New Orleans second-line, soul, funk, and Americana — as ever. This week, the group will play two shows at The New Parish (1743 San Pablo Ave., Oakland); Cajun blues band Tri Tip Trio and New Orleans-style brass band MJ’s Brass Boppers will open the show, and the food truck Roderick’s BBQ will be selling Southern food.
