Biography

A band whose sound defies definition, but whose magnetism commands attention. They have been called a jam band, which leaves a slightly bad taste in their mouths. Sweating Honey’s music is more a melting pot of styles including rock, reggae, funk, calypso, bluegrass, Dixieland, latin, blues, jazz, and rockabilly. Song writer and founder of the band, Luke Beckel describes the band as “…New Americana spliced with socially conscious lyrics and a powerful train wreck of energy…every month or so our style changes. We are products of our environment –half the year dark and cold, the other half endless vibrant energy. Been to Fairbanks? We’re pretty much all nuts. We try to play music that accommodates yet balances the mood of the emerging generation plagued by the chaos of shit accumulation. In other words we have songs for everyone.”

The band has been compared in published reviews to The Grateful Dead, Phish, Rage against the Machine, and Sublime. Anyway, they certainly appeal to the same wide fan base. Sweating Honey has a large and dedicated following, and as hundreds of people file into crowded Alaskan venues to see them play week after week, it is easy to see the possibility of them following closely in the steps of their predecessors, however in terms of sound they have cultivated a music that is all their own.



Sweating Honey regularly draws a crowd of over 300 in bars and has played for crowds of thousands at various music festivals including their headlining performance at the Okonogan Barter Fair in 2003.
