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.
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.
