Uncle Sugar: Seriously tasty blues and Americana and their versatility allows them to also deliver familiar selections of classic Soul, R&B, rock and country. The band also plays a collection of their original songs which have become local favorites. Larry Griffith (percussion/vocals/acoustic guitar) comes to us by way of Cincinnati, Ohio. Ross Pead (Slide guitar/vocals) comes to us from a trailer park in Waycross, Georgia.
Although from diverse backgrounds, locations and time periods, Uncle Sugar has a chemistry that meets on the same plane every Sunday night. With light-hearted personalities, unbeatable work ethics and a genuine love for their craft, Uncle Sugar is a must-see for anyone living, perhaps just stopping through the Atlanta area.

Tyler always knew he had to play music but didn’t always know why. The first leg of his musical path has made it clear, music is not just a project but a need. Like Col. Bruce Hampton always said, “there’s a gun to my back and I have to choice. I have to play music. I’ve tried to quit but the universe won’t let me.” This has become a mantra for Tyler, always reminding him to push ahead in the face of doubt, and believe in music as his best hope to meet his best self.”
