honeyhoney - ”Little Toy Gun”
With a half-dozen stages set up for Make Music Pasadena 2012 within walking distance of the the Del Mar and Memorial Park Gold Line stations, it doesn’t get any easier to Go Metro this weekend to enjoy a piece of what summer is all about: outdoor shows. Though there are a host of artists and stages worth visiting throughout the day Saturday, when the clock strikes 6 p.m., make sure you’re in front of the Levitt Pavilion to check out honeyhoney.
Their sound is often described as a mix of soul, rock, folk, jazz and country, among others, but since I’m not one to split hairs, I’ll just define their sound as “great tunes” and call it a day. The band was formed in 2006 by Suzanne Santo, an actress and solo performer at the time, and Ben Jaffe, who was recording music for TV and film. After meeting through a mutual friend, the duo cultivated their creative chemistry for a few years and then released “Loose Boots EP” in 2008, which was followed by their first full-length album entitled “First Rodeo” that same year. After three years of performing and writing, they most recently released their second full-length studio effort “Billy Jack” just last fall.
