This New Boston based band was formed in late 2016 when guitarist Todd M. Smith, a veteran of Boston area bands (Starr Faithfull, the Peacheaters, Rolling Nectar) approached his pal, former bandmate & seasoned powerhouse drummer Chris Botelho (Thomas Anderson, Guilty Pleasure, LoVeSeXy) about an idea he had for a unique new musical project. Todd explained..“I want to put together a band that rocks up old rhythm and blues tunes like Free, Humble Pie and the Faces did, but get a real lady soul singer, instead of a skinny white dude trying to sound like one." It didn't take long for Chris to say... “Well, I’ve got just the girl for you,” and introduced Todd to the flamboyant & incredibly gifted Gospel & Soul vocalist Shanell “Sugar” (Boston Pops, Sisters Of Soul, American All Star Band) along with bassist extraordinaire & Blues sideman Steve Bigelow (Neal & The Vipers, Greg Allman, Willie Dixon, Sleepy LaBeef, Dr. John) After their first rehearsal the chemistry was instantaneous & the members were excited to start working on a remarkable playlist from a variety of artists and songs. The name also came very quickly and it was pretty obvious. We had the "Sugar".. and she was backed by the "Spice". But not any ordinary spice... the Essential Spice!
SUGAR & the ESSENTIAL SPICE bring you Classic, High Energy Rock n' Soul, Rhythm & Blues, along with that extra little bit of special spice.
Performing classic songs by Aretha Franklin, Laura Lee, Ike & Tina Turner, Sweet Inspirations, BB King, The Faces, Isley Brothers, Candi Staton, Freddie King, Erma Franklin, Big Mama Thorton, Al Green, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Ann Peebles, Willie Dixon, Junior Watson, Etta James, Free and many more!
