Dutch band Sugar Boy and the Sinners brings the blues back to the masses. The band’s energetic live shows earned them a solid reputation among long-time bluesfans and young festival audiences alike. Their style is a modern mix of classic Blues with Soul, Funk and Rock ‘n Roll. This diverse sound has earned the band festivals spots together with acts such as Robert Cray, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Gov’t Mule, Status Quo and Walter Trout.
