The Acoustical Sounds of Big Sugar

BIG SUGAR churn out their unique blend of roots-rock-reggae, soul and dub with double neck guitars and dreadlocks flying through the air. Gordie Johnson and his Rasta brethren are well known for their thundering live performances spiced with epic dub excursions that keep crowds grooving. Big Sugar’s style has even inspired many other notable artists, including THE BLACK CROWES and GOV’T MULE. A platinum recording career that spans over 20 years includes their latest releases Revolution Per Minute, concert dvd Eliminate Ya! Live and a recent collaboration with Reggae legend Willi Williams on Bust No Guns.

Their most recent release “Yardstyle” is 13 tracks of languidly-paced, percussion-heavy acoustic reggae and will be featured on this tour. This heavy, heavy musical statement, runs the gamut from classics like “Turn The Lights On” to brand new cuts “Calling All the Youth” and “Police Bway the Vampire”. Featuring Reggae legend Willi Williams and an extended family of brethren, this is the heartbeat sound of Big Sugar.
