Sug is known as one the most dynamic performers on the scene today and a fan favorite at music festivals worldwide! His last Album on Forty Below Records, Somebody Save Me, was Grammy Nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album and most critics and fans agree that his latest record, In Too Deep, also on Forty Below is arguably a stronger record than the last… and that’s saying something! While Sug’s records are Great, it is his LIVE show that he is known for World Wide and propelled him to where he is now. Simply put, Sug LIVE is a PARTY. Sugaray and his 7 piece band with horns are hungry to get out there! Look for him in 2023 coming to a city near you. Give us a call if we can help you get Sug booked for your next Big Event!

Check out Sugaray’s video, “Invisible Solider”

Annika & Paul

Chambers/DesLauriers” both popular in their own right fronting their own bands, joined forces and came out of the 2021 Pandemic with a smokin’ band and Guns a Blazin’! With a new record on the way and the phones ringin’ off the hook these two are sure to be front and center and on everyone’s wish list for the remainder of 2022 and all of 2023!

Both on stage and in private life, these two internationally acclaimed artists share incredible chemistry! Their first introduction (lasting only a few seconds) in the crowded lobby of the historic Orpheum Theatre during the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee left a lasting impression on both of them. It was not until a year later, at a recording session during 2019 IBC that their professional acquaintance blossomed into a love affair, culminating in marriage in August of 2019! Since that time, renowned Canadian Blues-Rocker Paul DesLauriers and acclaimed American Soul-Blues singer Annika Chambers have unified their artistic destiny, much to the joy of everyone who’s had the pleasure of hearing and seeing them together!

It’s rare these days to find a band that’s this super talented with this many weapons! EVERYONE at Intrepid was BLOWN AWAY when we first heard Toronto’s Bywater Call and knew right away they were a natural fit for our agency and for possibly ALL of our buyers!

Meghan Parnell and Dave Barnes are the driving force behind Bywater Call, a powerhouse 7-piece Southern Soul, Roots Rock orchestra if you will. Already playing to packed houses across much of Europe their performances there have been praised in the media with references to Meghan being one of the best singers in blues and roots today. Meghan and Dave are complimented by their stellar band of All Star Caliber musicians made up of Bruce McCarthy on drums, Mike Meusel on Bass, Alan Zemaitis on Keys, Stephen Dyte on Trumpet and Julian Nalli on Tenor Sax.
