Blue Honey - With twin gun slinger guitars, a sultry female vocalist, two soulful sax players and a hard hitting rhythm
section "Blue Honey" can storm just about any club with a deluge of Blues, Root's Rock, Funk, Soul and more.
Every member a seasoned veteran of countless clubs, they know how to put a song over - whether it be down home
Mississippi Muddy Waters shuffle, raved up with slide guitar and sax or a Motown ass mover, pounding the club into a dance frenzy.

Elayne Fikucki - lead vocalist. Elayne was raised in a household in which the turntable was always turning. She developed an
appreciation for all types of music and has a wide category of musical knowledge. As a vocalist, she has a sultry bluesy
style which lends itself well to Blue Honey's repertoire.
Kevin Williams - Guitar. After touring and recording extensively with several other acts Kevin released his debut solo album
"Hollywood Endings" in the Spring of 2010. While playing live in support of the album he met founding members
of Blue Honey at a club in Worcester, MA and connected with them on both a personal and musical level. By the
Summer of 2012 he joined the band full-time. His take on blues playing lends a modern twist to Blue Honey's
classic rhythm and blues sound.
Darren Pinto - Guitar. Darren played in numerous Local and regional bands over the years.
He was fortunate to have toured with major National acts, shared the stage with local and National musicians.
He counts among his many influences: Albert King, Angus Young, SRV, Buddy Guy,
Justin Beliveau - Started playing bass at age 12. A heavy influence of classic rock learned from my father and uncle, a bass
player and a drummer. After high school Justin set off to Germany to pedal his four string wears, doing both original and cover
music. After 8 years overseas he returned to the U.S. landing in north Carolina. Another four years of classic rock before
returning home to Massachusetts in 2006. Played more original music before giving into his love of rhythm and blues and
finding a musical family in Blue Honey. Justin has had the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of James Montgomery,
Charlie Farren and many others.
James Bennett - Tenor Sax. James has been playing the saxophone for 20 years when, in 1983,decided to get serious. James joined the
roots blues band Jump'n George and the Blue Lites. One of the nice things about this band was that for five years it had a
weekly gig at a place called The Horseshoe Lounge. Occasionally, local luminaries such as Ronnie Earl and Jerry Portnoy would
come by and wow the crowd. Heady stuff. During the early 90's, the Blue Lites morphed into Tabasco Fiasco. Tabasco had a
heavier R&B sound with a strong rock capability. They had a good run north of Boston until 2014.
Since moving to central Massachusetts in 2000, James has been a member of New England Regional Bands Blue Honey, The Road Kill
Orchestra, The Reprobates Blues Band, Melanie and the Blue Shots, The Gurus of Blues, and Crawdade Creek.
The best piece of musical advice James received came from AC Reed, a sax player and good friend of Jimmy Reed.
"Just keep playing and everything gets easier." I am strongly influenced by Grady Gains, A C Reed, Lester Young
Richard Becker - Sax. Richard first started playing sax at age 10....played through out middle school, high school and while
attending North Texas State University, a 30 year Master Carpenter by trade, Richard has always been a sax player at heart.
Currently you\'ll find Richard playing with Mike Girard's Big Swinging Thing and Blue Honey. Richard is a fantastic performer
playing and holding Jazz, Blues, Funk, and Soul Music near and dear to him.
Austin Beliveau (Tuna) - Drums. Tuna played in many NE bands like Colt45, NE3, Austin Winch band and many others. Starting back as far as
1967 1968 playing for returning Veterans at the Natick army Labs. He's also played up and down east coast from VT to Fl and
directions west. He was influnced by Classic Rock, Country R & B and good old Blues . Tuna gets his schooling by Marching
band, many hours of live shows, and of course the big school of hard knocks.
