A Taste of Honey: Boogie Oogie Oogie (1978)

Like it or not, disco produced some great bass lines. Jeff Kerestes shared this music video of A Taste of Honey, featuring bassist/vocalist Janice-Marie Johnson, on our Facebook page.

The song, “Boogie Oogie Oogie,” is a classic example of groovy bass from the ’70s.

“I just came across this video,” Jeff said. “Classic bass line! Great female bass player.”

disco, or some of it at least was quite funky. I love the way Janice plays the bass (not necessary the singing.. but she still can sing much better than myself)!



Oh! What a Fun Time that was!!! 1978! I was there!!


Singing bass player. Always impressive IMO :)
For some reason it’s very hard to notice other band members in this clip :)



PURE RESPECT!!!! IMPOSSIBLE TO PLAY AND SING AT THE SAME TIME!!! (caps on purpose!) “Listen to my bass, yeah!”
