Honey Gitters original song writing can be classified as Americana with timeless character sketches and pearls of wisdom that could easily belong in Ben Franklin’s “Poor Richards Almanac.” On the other hand, it takes only a flip of a switch for the Gitters to barrel down a Rock-n-Roll Avenue with tasty licks over a driving rhythm section. Appropriate for all ages and many genres. Their music can be classified as Rock/Americana, but the banjo adds a twist of twang to the movement. The Honey Gitters play songs about guns, sitcom reruns, chase scenes, chimney sweepers, whistlepigs, cities of gold, caribbean islands, shifty ramblers, lonesome pork butchers, trains, wet cigarettes, weddings, historical figures, food, and other pressing topics. Their usual instrumentation includes guitar, banjo, bass, drums, and vocals. Sometimes they wield all acoustic instruments, sometimes all electric, sometimes a little of both, depending on the situation.
