"Honey Bee" is a duo comprised of singer-songwriter-guitarist
Michael D. Amitin and percussionist-singer Betty Rojas.
The two met playing a gig as hired guns in a champagne parlor in Paris.
Poet, storyteller, musician, Michael D. Amitin travelled the roads of the American West from California- east through the smoky burgs and train depot diners of Western Colorado, crisscrossing the highways of America- before moving to Paris in 2009.
His credits include songwriter/musician on the RCA album "First Fire" self produced albums 'Seaspiders' Jemima Puddle-Duck' and 'Three Party System.' Michael's songs have been recorded by Motown greats David Ruffin, Natalie Cole and others. In Paris, he's played in clubs and concerts.
Percussionist, Singer Betty Rojas.. moved from Miami to Paris in 1990 and has since played in numerous festivals ( Jazz à Vienne, Festival de jazz de Nice, and many more) with Rumbanana, a Latin Jazz big band, with French pop star Camille at Festival de La Rochelle. She’s also played on television with Dick Rivers and on Dominique Farrugia’s, La Grosse Émission. Betty played with Leon Parker and was featured on his latest album, The Leo. She plays in many other groups around town as well.
East Coast- West Coast, the collaboration of these two creates a unique brew -
country-blues tunes stacked with bristling, soulful vocal harmonies with latin percussion percolating infectious grooves beneath.
