Soul singer Brett Wesley burst onto the local music scene six years ago a front man for Wesley Bright and the Hi-Lites, who packed area clubs with the sweaty, high-energy music until they disbanded two years ago.
Wesley himself went on to form a new band called the Honeytones, featuring many of the same players and a similar sound with roots in classic ’60s and ’70s soul music. The band’s name is a hat tip to Wesley’s other passion, beekeeping in urban lots and selling honey and honey-based skin care products as the Akron Honey Company.
Catch the band’s horn-driven R&B at the Beachland Ballroom where there’s plenty of room for the requisite dancing. Alanna Royale opens. Admission is $15.
