Bio

Founded in 2000, The HoneyBadgers (formerly Steel Blue) has evolved into one of Central Minnesota's premier cover bands. Our repertoire stretches across many genres of music including: Classic Country, Classic Rock, Country, Pop, 70's, 80's, 90's, & today's hit music. We feature music from diverse artists such as Johnny Cash, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, The Black Eyed Peas, Waylon Jennings & Men at Work just to name a few.

We pride ourselves on harmoniously rich vocals and the ability to adapt to our environment. Therefore, we can play an all country show, and all rock/classic rock/pop show, a variety show, themes, etc., pretty badass.  
 
Our six current members include:
  • Chris Murphy - Vocals/Lead & Rhythm Guitar
  • Aaron Lahmann - Vocals/Keys
  • Brandon Johnson - Vocals/Drums
  • Jen Lahmann - Vocals/Tamberine/Cowbell
