ABOUT THE BAND
Laconia and The Honeytones are a sort of retro 50's folk-pop band featuring Laconia Koerner on vocals and rhythm guitar, Danny Shaheen on lead guitar, and Rory Alt on upright bass. We're a trio that formed slowly, letting the music lead us to each other.
Laconia had several tunes that were looking for a band when she met Danny, and his intuitive, studied playing style blended nicely with her vocals. The collaboration gradually yielded a sound of its own, and in time, a few of the songs begged for more rhythm.
When Rory stepped in, it was as if his swinging bass lines had been there all along. We hope you'll feel that way about our music -- fresh sounds that feel like old friends.
