Sugar Baron is a beat-driven musical experiment that mixes Motown influences with a modern twist of driving guitars and buttery electronic beats. The Michigan trio consists of Ryun Weber (English, formerly The Lunar Calendar, Cerilia, IKILLJACK), Randy Nelsen (formerly The Lunar Calendar, Cerilia) and Jan Kruszewski (formerly Memory to Matter).
Since the release of their first album in February 2012, "Monet on the Dance Floor", Sugar Baron has sold over 400 CDs. The group has a combined experience of over hundreds of live shows, and have played with local and touring bands like We Came As Romans, And Hell Followed With, The Summer Set, The Weakend, The Receiving End of Sirens, Misery Signals, The Ready Set, Versa Emerge and Folly. "Our goal through our music is to reach as many people as we can and help them cut loose, get down, and stop taking themselves so seriously. We act strange, we look great, and we aren't embarrassed to boogie or shred the kazoo. [+]
