Erik Krefeld of Studio 127 who I met some time ago brought this band to my attention who believe it or not I met through Facebook when I was in the process of setting up my arts studio and had some questions about video streaming and broadcasting.

I could not have done a better job on the Honey Creepers Band bio myself that was borrowed from the Reverbnation website where you can get even more information about the incredible accomplishments these musicians have stacked up over their careers as they are as about as professional as they come.

I am really glad I had a chance to meet Erik Krefeld of Studio 127 otherwise I probbably wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet up with The Honey Creepers as soon as I did. Erik and Studio 127 was a huge help with getting myself connected with my own studio which will be some really cool things happening for 2016. Who knows if you stop in at Studio 127 you may even catch myself jamming to the open mic nights and Live Music that is held there working on a mural and/or painting, but don’t get too close I may get some paint on you, especially if I am jamming to one of my favorite blues and /or nostalgic rock and roll songs, I can get pretty wild sometimes especially when I am playing my variety of air instruments.
