The Sugar Thieves (Link to website: http://www.thesugarthieves.com) are built from a sultry blues foundation with a powerhouse delta sound that will take you back in time. They also come equipped with a fresh new style, high-energy showmanship, and an original song list that brings music enthusiasts of any age to their feet to shake that meat! In 2008 and 2009, The Sugar Thieves won the AZ Blues Showdown and were voted best blues band in the state. They went on to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis where they were voted one of the top ten unsigned blues bands in the world, and won the “People’s Choice” award at the Old Daisy Theatre in 2010.
The Sugar Thieves were also voted best Americana band in 2009 by the Phoenix New Times’ “Summer of Sound Series,” and were also nominated for Best Local Band in Phoenix. The singular vision that drives this band is their plight to reintroduce what some call a dying genre (blues music) to younger generations, and those that have simply forgotten.
