Honeywagen draws from power-pop and garage influences and has been together since 2000, but it has undergone a few lineup changes. Matthew Swigert, the band’s original drummer, is back with the band. “Our former bass player, Pat, moved to Florida, so now we {have} Bill on bass who is an amazing singer-songwriter,” Swigert says. “We will be playing the tracks off a bonus disc Big Star Columbia Live we made for our distributor (Kool Kat Musik in New Jersey). They are going to use it as a free giveaway to help promote our back catalog of our first two records (Payday and Station Wow).”
