Bee’s & Honey are a six piece Ska and Soul band made up of some of the UK’s finest musicians. Formally known as P45 (described as modern SKA and cockney opera). P45 formed from the covers band (The Coverup). As an original band P45 played the original music circuit. Places like Camden In North London, Shoreditch In East London and many other places would be taken over by P45 and its fans during mid-week.
P45 were signed to an independent record label called ’54 – 46 Records LTD’ who financed huge projects and recording studio time. This saw the release of the bands debut album titled “stories to be told” of which two singles charted. P45 had toured and gigged with bands such as Bad Manners, The Beat, Madness, Bruce Foxton, Chas & Dave, Simply Red and many MANY more.
The members of the band had always been friends and always stayed in touch and spoke about getting back together under a new name but the time was never right. Until now. Bee’s & Honey have been formed and we are back stronger and better than ever. As well as covering some huge ska and soul classics we will also be showcasing our original music. We hope that you will join us in our new journey.
