The Honeybirds: Home
Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of central Virginia, the Honeybirds combine country, bluegrass, folk, and old-time rock and roll to create a band steeped in classic American music. Led by renowned singer-songwriter Jan Smith and complemented by a versatile group of area instrumentalists, the Honeybirds’ diverse catalog and wealth of live experience enables them to please clients ranging from newlyweds at wedding receptions to promoters for summer festivals.
“They set the perfect mood for our wedding rehearsal dinner in the Virginia mountains. The little ones, the thirtysomethings, and the old-timers alike all had a great time. I honestly could not have asked or hoped for a better evening,” says Skip Maier of Bluemont, Virginia, who hired the band for a private party.
The Honeybirds offer several different lineups, ranging from a delicate acoustic duo or trio perfect for a small wedding, to a plugged-in electric quartet or quintet for larger parties and outdoor shows. The band can even add a pedal steel or banjo player to fit the specific tastes of any country or bluegrass fan.
With a repertoire that varies from the timeless “Walkin’ After Midnight” to more contemporary hits, the Honeybirds can craft a setlist that satisfies young and old.
