New York City's Live Honey first formed in the spring of 1997, but it wasn't until three years later and numerous members coming and going that the definitive lineup took shape: guitarist/harmonica player Steve Roiphe, drummer Tony Gibson, bassist Glenn Nataupsky, and last but not least, vocalist Shelly Bhushan. Roiphe is the only native New Yorker of the group, as the other members relocated to the Big Apple in search of finding a rock band (Gibson from Barbados, Nataupsky from Massachusetts, and Bhushan Texas). The focal point of Live Honey is frontwoman Bhushan, a classically trained singer with blues and jazz experience, who replaced Roiphe as the singer in the group. December 2000 saw the release of their debut CD, Move Yourself, comparable to such modern-day funk-popsters as No Doubt, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Sugar Ray.
