When 4ZZZ's original space was being built by hand under the Schonell Theatre at Queensland University, a baby grand piano from the theatre above was bricked in to Studio 3. We don't know how they got it out...
Fronted by the talented Emma-Louise, with Rupert Jenner on electric guitar, Toby Mellonie on double-bass, and a driving drum beat, this four piece 'filly-billy' band is sweetening the palate of Bris-Vegas rockers' with their own high energy brand of Rockabilly, Swing, Blues and Rock 'n' Roll.
But don't let the name fool you, they're not all sweetness and light.
They have been working hard playing around South East QLD venues entertaining punters with their raunchy numbers, while the last two years have seen them playing at The Big Day Out, supporting Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Imelda May, as well as playing numerous Festivals.
2010 saw the band record a 7 track self-titled EP, and 2012 will see the band in the studio again to record a full length album of original material.
The Sugarshakers are moving fast so be on the lookout when this four piece hits your town, you won't want to miss their up-beat energetic show. You're bound to be enslaved by the mix of rockin' and swingin' sounds.
