Welcome to the website of one of the livliest R'n'B Bands currently playing around the North East. The Sugar B's are a hard driving up tempo R 'n' B Band playing material from the 50s, 60s, 70s and even earlier.

The Bands material includes numbers by Canned Heat, The Rolling Stones, Doobie Bros, Chuck Berry, The Kinks, The Doors,  Dr Feelgood,  The Animals, and even some Bob Dylan.


We are pleased to announce that we have our new singer firmly on board and going through rehearsals with us now. Claire Vassallo is joining us and will be appearing as soon as humanly possible. Big changes are ahead for your favourite band so make sure you come to see us.

Starting her musical career as a teenager playing guitar at the local youth club and joining a band at the age of 15, she went on to play the north east clubs and later returning to pub bands pursuing her love of blues rock music. Bands from over the years include The Big Deal (country blues), The RoadRockettes (lively blues), Pink Cadillac (rock), The Blues Corporation (blues rock), and The Buzzard Blues Band (blues rock) to name just a few. One original band Primitive North East produced an album named Music from The Other Side of The Tracks

We'll let you know when Claire is ready meanwhile it's business as usual.

Throughout July we have Jonny Wright and John Robson sharing vocals with us.  Thank you to both of them for their help and support, as well as the beautiful Alex Grady joining us on saxophone for some of the gigs.

See the gig guide for details.
