Big Sugar

The legendary Big Sugar celebrate their ground-breaking “500 Pounds” deluxe vinyl world wide release from Third Man Records with “An Evening With” 2-set theatrical presentation that spans their storied career from Hugo Boss suit days to their more recent Roots Rock Reggae vibes. Gordie Johnson’s power trio breathe life into their early blues and jazz-tinged songbook that has influenced generations of guitarists. “The theatre setting gives us the opportunity to explore a much wider range of styles while still presenting a Big Sugar rock & roll show!”

Mr. Johnson has returned to the stage with new bassist and fellow Austinite Anders Drerup and 22-year-old phenom drummer Root Valach. “Our music has always been about roots and culture and this is a perfect piece of that evolution.” They have become a seamless unit of deep musicality and soaring vocals providing fans with some of the best Big Sugar shows yet.

Since the 90’s Big Sugar have been a staple on the airwaves and highways with a unique combination of Jamaican rhythms, blues tonality and heavy rock aggression. Songs like “Diggin’ A Hole”, “If I Had My Way”, “Turn the Lights On” and “Roads Ahead” with their Roots Rock Reggae style featuring Gordie Johnson’s signature guitar playing have built a loyal following, earning Big Sugar a Road Gold Award as they continue to sell out concerts across North America.
