San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM for a live performance with the Honey Wilders on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 @ 8:00pm in the market garage.

"Knock-out 70s-style boogie rock" -Guitar Player Magazine

The Honey Wilders' brand of boogie is undeniably 70s-flavored, recalling the era of big hooks and big guitars before all the big hair. Their refreshing sonic cocktail is something like one part Exile on Main Street and Damn the Torpedoes, with a splash of In Color, served up Live and Dangerous. Strongly recommended for rockers and power-poppers who like to get down and get with it.
