Funky Sounds of Honey Blo on the Bagpipe "Love and Alcohol Just
Blo, the funkiest playin' bagpiper from the windy city, Chicago.
His music has a unique sound that takes funk to another level
that will please any bagpipe lover and newcomers it is a little
something new to explore. The capability of this fine instrument
goes beyond people's stereotype image of men wearing kilts and
playing music heard in Scotland. The old Ohio school funk style
mixed, with a hip hop/pop funk is not known to exist in an instrument
of this type, except for Honey Blo, the man who is making history
with his creative musical skill.
music teacher Duke Payne, who also taught him to play the alto
saxophone and flute, introduced honey to the bagpipe in grade
school. His funky style of singing comes from growing up listening
to the "Godfather of Soul James Brown". Honey Blo is an independent
artist on his own label, he produce, writes his own music and
have his own dance style to amaze any one who check out his
video on YouTube. Honey Blo is on a mission to educate the world
to the other side of the bagpipe with his new release Blazin'
& Steppin' written by long time friend and business associate
Walter Newby a.k.a "Funky Walter" Honey stated, when he first
heard the song he knew that adding the bagpipe would be off
the hook, so he asked and received, with it now blowin' up the
radio stations and internet.
swaggering and energetic music is gaining popularity, and he
is deservedly becoming a Chicago Blues/Funk legend; with performing
at numerous Chicagoland clubs and taverns; specifically, Durkin's,
The Taste, and East of the Ryan. He's been tested by the best,
having played with Chicago Blues master, Muddy Waters; the talented
