The SUGAR THIEVES in Concert
Fly Me to the Moon Blues Concert Series proudly presents THE SUGAR THIEVES in concert. The sizzling-hot 5 piece Rhythm and Blues Band from Arizona featuring the soulful and sassy Meridith Moore belting out the vocals and Shea Marshall on Saxophone. They come equipped with a fresh new style, high-energy showmanship, and an original song list that brings music enthusiasts of any age to their feet! In 2008 and 2009, The Sugar Thieves won the Phoenix Blues Society’s AZ. Blues Showdown and were voted best blues band in the state. They went on to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (Feb. 2009/Jan. 2010) where they were voted one of the top ten unsigned blues bands in the world and won the “People’s Choice” award at the Old Daisy Theatre in 2010. The Sugar Thieves were also voted best Americana band in 2009 by the Phoenix New Times’ “Summer of Sound Series”, and were nominated for Best Local Band in Phoenix as well. The singular vision that drives this band is their plight to reintroduce what some call a dying genre, blues music, to younger generations and those that have simply forgotten. But don’t think you’ve heard anything like it before. The Thieves put on a show that’s worth writing home about.
