THE SUGARLAND BRASS COMPANY ORIGINATED IN 2008 IN Sugar Land, Texas, founded by Vito Varone and often referred to as "SBC".
A band a bit different than most in the Houston area with the members decked out in suits, ties and hats reminiscent of old time gangster of America's Prohibition Era
playing music that goes back to the Cab Calloway, Louis Prima and Louis Armstrong days.
Then you'll hear Bobby Darrin, Jimmy Reed, ZZ Hill, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Sam Cooke, Bobby "Blue" Bland just to name a few.
The music took you around the states from Sweet Home Chicago, to On Broadway maybe A Rainy Night in Georgia on down to New Orleans for the Second Line / Dirge
Parade where Vito Varone would put on his white gloves and carry his parasol asking the audience to participate in the Saint James Infirmary march. He with his trumpet and soulful funeral
procession voice followed by Josh Sanchez on trombone and Dan Carpenter on sax.
Next came the Memphis Blues and down to the Texas Gulf Coast or up to Mowtown for a little My Girl.
