9 - Sugar Mama

Genre: Reggae/ Funk/ Rock
Location: NYC
Website: www.myspace.com/sugarmamarock 

Bio: Sugar Mama provides the groove. With influences ranging from Sublime, to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Jimi Hendrix, this band can't go wrong. Their catchy tunes include trippy escapades to psychedelia that always return back to the source. Their infallible experiments with form are exquisitely delicious. For a trio, these guys create a sound much greater than the sum of its parts. The intricate guitar work of Kyle Lalone locks in with Dan Africano's counterpuntal bass grooves, and their voices dance together like nymphs in an evergreen forest on a dewey Autumn morn. Don't forget Joshua Steingard's killer funk- train drum stylings (dumps like a truck!). The dictionary says that stylings isn't a word. Fuck the dictionary! Sugar mama equals stylings, many stylings, tasty stylings and wild stylings!

With a new album in the works, these guys are hard at it killing shows across the Northeast! Look out for these bros on college radio in the near future! After a sensual meeting at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA this group formed in 2008 and has been jammin to the max ever since. If you're in the city lookin for a good time make sure you hit up Sugar Mama for her salted morsels of carmelized crunknicity. If you're a fan of Rage Against the Machine, Queens of the Stoneage, RX Bandits, Sublime, or The Peppers give them a listen! Their myspace contains a library of un-discovered ancient alien architecture. They are the Wise-men from the Northeast on a journey to quench your thirsty ear-pussies!
