A Band Called Honalee draws inspiration from The Mamas & Papas, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Byrds and other legends of 1960s folk/rock. By reinvigorating their iconic songs with fresh harmonies, A Band Called Honalee brings this vital American music back to life.

Following in the footsteps of Peter, Paul & Mary, A Band Called Honalee got its start in the heart of New Year City’s East Village in 2009. Since then, they have pursued an active touring schedule around the country. Their self-titled debut CD was released earlier this year.

A Band Called Honalee believes the melodies and messages of the 1960s folk and folk/rock era are just as relevant today as they were when they were first sung, perhaps even more so. Their mission is to share this uniquely American music with new audiences, while rekindling the passion of long-time fans. Above all, they celebrate the undeniable ability of these songs to inspire people and bring them together once again.
