Honeyboy Des

Blues musician in Melbourne VIC, Australia



Once you've heard “Honeyboy Des”, you are hooked.….. Honeyboy Des does it best with his pulsating, rhythmic drive on guitar and Slide, leaning sometimes towards a jazzy blues feel or a bluesy country feel or a blues shuffle, a Boogie or plain Slide madness. Honeyboy Des says: “My music is about pulling on heart strings it's about conveying your deepest feelings without holding back. It's about bearing ones soul fearlessly with honesty and that’s why I am so passionate about it. Music is truth; my music will resonate in your soul because everybody gets the blues. Everybody feels love, sorrow, passion and pain”.


My proudest achievement has been raising more than $28000 in a single day for the families of victims of the Burke street mall tragedy in Melbourne in 2017; through a charity busk in the Burke Street Mall, along with fellow musicians. We pressed 1000 CDs and sold all of them within a few hours. Plus we donated hundreds of dollars in coins and notes from tips.


My other great achievement has been playing for a charity to raise money and awareness for homeless people through events held by radio station 3aw in Melbourne.
