ABOUT

Sugar Highway is a high-energy modern country cover band actively gigging around Chicagoland playing top venues, bars and some festivals. We are female & male fronted, backed by two guitars, bass and key's.

We are in need of a seasoned , tight drummer, one who is an outside of the box thinker. This person should know how to play / work with pre-defined / mixed backing tracks. Understand it's technical usage, educated on how the routing works, and know the lingo when working with engineer's. Note: our goal in using B/T's is mainly to round out our FOH sound, adding in instruments that we cannot cover and / or do not play seated properly in the mix.

Not a mandatory need however having the ability to sing backup is always helpful too :)

A bit about us: Currently we gig about twice a month, could be more for the right gig's. We have recently took on a engineer whom will travel with the band to assist in our stage plot setup which will include monitoring our IEM rack system, be the middle man b/t us and FOH, and mix the show. We all work full time day jobs, are all laid back however serious about what we do. We are not looking to get rich from it, our goal is to entertain and have fun doing it all.
