Sugar and The Hi-Lows in Studio B

Friday, February 10th at 3PM: Sugar and The Hi-Lows

As they tell it, Sugar & The Hi Lows (Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup) are "bringing back the era of feel good music, the days when one take was enough and an auto-tune was a thing you did to your ’55 Chevy.  It's a bit of a nostalgic love offering."  Just in time for their Valentine's Day album release, and shows in Knoxville, Asheville, Carrboro, & Charlotte this week.
