Sugarbeat feat Red Bennies Burlesque
Sugarbeat are a force, a gang… a band dedicated to authoritative soul & funk.
They are disciplined funk brokers, conduits to fundamental groove. You can dance to them!
Sugarbeat are Rohan Wallis on vocals and trumpet, Chris Pappas on tenor saxophone and backing vocals, David Rex on alto and baritone saxophone and backing vocals, Jason Dickie on guitar and backing vocals, Steve Hadley on electric bass and Barnaby Gold on drums.
Sugarbeat are blooded with years of live performances and recording as musicians in their own right.
Sugarbeat are confident purveyors of funk yet honour Maceo Parker & the JB’s, Curtis Mayfield, The Meters, Tower of Power and Sly and The Family Stone
Days was shaped in Sing Sing Recording Studios under the gaze of distinguished sound engineer Andy Baldwin. Bass steward Steve Hadley, a phenomenon in music, was the producer.
Sugarbeat huddled and in three clammy days and sleepless, wired, intense and at times dangerous nights fashioned Days.
Sugarbeat were honoured, by Lord of Australian jazz, James Morrison providing a weave of magic flugelhorn on one of the tracks on the record.
Sugarbeat are live at various times at Tony Starr’s Kitten Club, The Belgian Beer Bar, The Vineyard and Blue Diamond.
Guest accomplices include Jake Mason keyboards; Phil Ceberano rhythm guitar; Leo Salvo percussion; Kieran Conrau trombone; Katie Thompson backing vocals and James Morrison flugelhorn.
