Rose Weaver

The Honeysuckle Rose Band's musical motto is "Keep the Heritage Alive!" Its nucleus of blues and jazz - what leader Rose Weaver learned growing up out in the country town of McDonough, Georgia and polished on stages throughout the world - contributes to the bands lively, passionate, and fun relationship with their audiences.

From sultry ballads to shuffles, swing, or the blues, Rose's singing captures the essence of the great songs by paying attention to the underlying grooves of the period in which they were created. She is not an imitator, but an interpretive singer and actress, whose vocal range and ability to give multifarious textures to the melodies and lyrics allows her to be true to the written melody and find her own variations and nuances.

Colorful and frisky costumes are a part of the band's showmanship. They specialize in playing feel good music through songs like This Joint Is Jumpin', Ain't MIsbehavin', Honeysuckle Rose, When the Saints Go Marching In. The Honeysuckle Rose Band brings back the laughter, fun, tears, and pain indigenous to blues and jazz music found in the black experience.
