A Taste of Honey
Claim to fame: Quick quiz: Which of these artists won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist of 1977? The Cars, Elvis Costello, Toto or A Taste of Honey? Since you’re here, you probably already know A Taste of Honey won. A Taste of Honey was one of those here this morning, gone this afternoon acts that disco seemed to specialize. Perhaps no other genre of pop music produced so many one- and two-hit wonders. A Taste of Honey’s claim to looking better than Costello and The Cars was a song called Boogie Oogie Oogie. And yes, it was as bad as it sounds.
A Taste of Honey
Where are they now? Where A Taste of Honey differed from most of disco oddities is in the fact that they never actually disappeared. The band produced a few other minor hits and added Suzan Thomasto their lineup in 1984. The band still manages to sell to sold-out crowds in concert halls, music festivals and casinos around the country. They recently released an enhanced-CD called Until the Eagle Falls which was inspired by band founder Janice-Marie’s Native American roots.

Just wanted to let you know, that Taste of Honey disbanded many years ago,
and Janice Marie and Hazel Payne have led separate lives and careers for many years.
I am a singer who has worked over the years with Hazel, and she said that she
and Janice have not spoken for more than 10 years. Apparently there is a lot of ill will since the demise of the band.
Hazel has a cover band that does worldwide tours to sell out crowds.
she currently resides in Las Vegas
I love Honey still to this day :) said:
