Honey B Mama appeared at the Ealing Blues festival on th 22nd of July and apparently wowed the audience with their style of R&B.
Earlier in June they appeared at  the celebration of the "Older People's" festival and the special launch week of the re-opening of Queen Elizabeth Hall
where the blues band rocked the joint with a paced rendition of the Ella Fitzgerald classic "My baby just cares for me".
