If you're looking to satisfy your appetite for new original music, The Sugarbeats will send your musical taste buds zooming! Some say they bring a new twist of appalachian flavor to the table while others simply classify them as Americana. With their high spirits and bold nuances, the Sugarbeats bring fun to the table and are a delight for all audiences! They play the genre of fun!
With three red headed sassy girls and an equally quirky drummer, they often get asked if they are family. They will be the first to tell you that, while they feel like they have known each other for ages, they are not genetically related. But they are related through music! Your vibe attracts your tribe! They have been seen playing for several well known venues such as Terrapin Hill Farm, Ritter Park, and the La-Z Acres Campground as well as local pubs in the tri- state. They would love to come hang out and play in your hometown as well!
The Sugarbeats are taking over the world one "Cold cold heart (a song title from thir fiddle player, the and only Shirley Seim)" at a time.
