SUGAR THIEVES
SUGAR THIEVES
The Sugar Thieves have a sultry blues roots foundation, and powerhouse delta sound that will take you back in time. They also 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 to shake that meat! 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 in 09, and won the “People’s Choice” award at the Old Daisy Theatre in 2010. The Sugar Thieves were also voted best Americana band in 09 by the Phoenix New Times’ “Summer of Sound Series”, and 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.

BRIAN KEITH
Brian Keith Wallen is on the road all the time. From one coast to another, Brian is spreading his brand of alternative blues across the country. His lightning licks on guitar will never let you forget his name. In just a few years, Brian has released five albums and performed over 1,000 shows in 18 states. iSpy Cincy writes, "His raw passionate sound encompasses the blues soul with perfection."

Brian placed 2nd in the 2015 International Blues Challenge, ranking in the top two out of hundreds of blues artists from all over the world. He is also the winner of the Star-Gennett Blues Artist of the Year award, the Cincy Blues Challenge, and the Dayton Blues Challenge.

Incorporating elements of blues, rock, bluegrass, and folk, Brian has brought his foot-stomping, one-man-band show to timeless treasures, such as Dollywood and the Ryman Auditorium. He's also taken it all the way to countless blues festivals and the one and only Beale Street. "The artists that I love bring energy and soul to their music," Brian says. "They put it all out there, and it's real. I aspire to get to that level, and every performance is an opportunity." Check out tour dates on the Shows page, and on Facebook.
