Sugar Queen review…June 21, 2019….

SUGAR QUEEN

AND THE STRAIGHT BLUES BAND

LIVE

SQ2-2019

GIVE SUGAR–WANNA TAKE MY MAN–BIG MAMA TOLD ME–BULLOCK BLUES–TWOS AND FEWS–NOTHING’S GONNA HOLD ME BACK–TRAVELLING MAN–I CAN’T WAIT–BIG LEG GIRL–HOLD YOUR DRANK

Sometimes, the only thing that can soothe your soul is some of those good ole, down-home blues from somebody that sings ’em,and sings ’em well.  If that’s what you need, then you came to the right place, ’cause, straight outta Chicago, we are proud to present our review for one of the biggest, purest, voices in all of the contemporary arena, Sugar Queen and her Straight Blues Band, with “LIVE!”

Her real name is Michele Denise, and her roots are in Alabama, but, fans, she is blues to the bone, as these ten cuts will attest.  She busts outta the gate with her shufflin’ theme song, “Give Sugar a little sugar!  She cuts a playa off at the knees who might “Wanna Take My Man,” with the news that “it sounds like a damn good plan,” ’cause he’s “no good in bed,” either!  This one is some slow’n’ sexy blues at its best, as our girl takes that other woman right on down to the alley!  The band hits a cool Junior Wells-styled groove while Sugar explains, “I’m A Big Leg Girl, and I like a big long car,” and shares some sage advice that “Big Mama Told Me, how to catch and keep a man–just fire up that fryin’ pan!”

Sugar Queen is currently based in the Netherlands/Belgium region, but you can’t take the blues out of her soul.  This “LIVE” set proves it, as she brings the heat on these ten sweet cuts of soul-savin’ blues!   Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues And Roots Alliance.
