cd cov final

Honey of the Heart (fronted by Justin Ancheta and Maren Metke) is described as “a feast for the senses and a balm for the soul”, leaving you with “chills and an open heart”. This versatile, inspiring duo, backed by their dynamic and talented band, weaves together soaring, rich vocals and melodies… haunting, epic, three-part harmonies… powerful beat boxing & contagious polyrhythms infused with a deep, soulful presence..

The show will be full of musical magic, from the subtle and soft to powerful, motivating music that will inspire you to get dancing! “We’re so pleased to be playing at the Center for the Arts again” says Maren Metke, one half of the gifted duo. ”Both Justin and I have deep roots in Nevada County. There’s nothing like introducing our music to new audiences and coming home and playing in front of friends and family at the same time.”
The show will be opened by Cello Joe, the world’s only beatboxing, long distance bicycling, looping cellist. His beatboxing (vocal percussion) and funky cello grooves form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics and his music spreads love, joy, laughter and conscious vibrations.
