"If they continue to produce even a percentage of the sound they achieved with Mad there is nothing that can hold this band back. I can’t think of a better record to kick of the year."
"Lead by powerful vocals, with some nice raw backing instrumentals, the band delivers a compelling record that is great from start to finish."
"Honey & the 45s combine the low-fi sonics of eighties punk, the gorgeous rolling cadences of seventies R&B, and the infectious hooks of sixties pop."
"[MAD's] sultry funkiness draws you in from the beginning, and as we listen to the song we realize how soulful the band is as a group"
"This isn’t some by-the-numbers thing; there’s a lot of heart in this band’s music. Which gives them that certain something – and Honey & The 45’s have it. So by all means – get Mad."
Honey & the 45s wins best Blues/Jazz band of 2014 at Chicago Independent Music Awards.
