When Sugaray belts out a song, you not only hear it, you feel it. The excitement in the room is palpable when he takes the stage; he is a superb vocalist and entertainer. His dynamic voice is large just like the man. With his old school vocal style, echoes of Muddy Waters, Otis Redding and Teddy Pendergrass can be heard. At 6’5” he is a big man, but he moves with grace and energy. His fluid dance steps will remind you of the Legendary James Brown.
Opening the show at 7pm is CJ Neary and the Bee Eaters. Now 12 years old, CJ Neary has been asking for an instrument to play since he could speak. He began playing violin at age 5, starting out with classical, then Texas-style fiddling, bluegrass, jazz, and funk. CJ is now composing, singing, and playing piano and guitar too. With multiple national titles and a Grand Ole Opry performance under his belt, CJ is currently working on his first album, with teacher Georges Bouhey, and is touring with the Bee Eaters.
