Kristina Helene: "I have never been able to call myself one genre. I have always been interested in a vast variety of music that calls to me. My original music and the type of music I like to perform is a complex and beautiful mix of folk, pop, soul, and jazz.

The greatest hits of top artists of the era are featured in the Honeycrooners’ show. The full band is able to accurately recreate the authentic sounds of the originals with a look and feel that matches the scene in the clubs of Las Vegas’ glory days. It’s energizing, fun and the ultimate in class. For smaller situations, the Honeycrooners can appear as a trio, but regardless of the size, the swaggering irreverence is ever present and a journey back to the timeless music of the 20th century.
