.Giveaway: The California Honeydrops


Lech Wierzynski doesn’t have a typical American funk and soul artist backstory. For starters, he was born in Warsaw, Poland. But as a youngster, he was introduced to the music of Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong and others, and when the family moved to the U.S., Wierzynski’s love of music grew. When a friend introduced him to the Rebirth Brass Band, he found his musical calling. Now frontman for the California Honeydrops, Wierzynski leads one of the funkiest dancefloor-packing acts in the Bay Area and beyond. With tight horns, irresistible grooves and a New Orleans-inspired sense of get-down, the band is pure joy in action. On Dec. 1, the Honeydrops bring the party to the Catalyst. 

INFO: 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $20/adv, $22/door. 423-1338. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 27 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
