About Sugar Britches

Sugar Britches has organized a tribute to our favorite singer-songwriter John Prine, with the full Sugar Britches band AND a cavalcade of Colorado singers and pickers jumping in to sing and share their favorite John Prine songs. Performers include: Erik Lundesweet, Virginia Joe Schicke (West side Joe and the men of soul), and more!

Sugar Britches is a blend of mischievous high-brow honky-tonk with eclectic instrumental accompaniment and clever lyrics, written by Brian Johanson and performed by a cavalcade of characters. Combining good ‘ol country heartache along with snarky folksy wit, Sugar Britches has been playing non-stop throughout Colorado and the great West in bars, parking lots, weddings, bat mitzvahs, rodeos, amphitheaters and regular theaters since 2017.

Sugar Britches have received critical acclaim and plain old criticism. They have opened up for many national touring artists, including Reckless Kelly, Wynonna Judd & the Big Noise, Hannah Dasher, Jaime Wyatt, Big Richard, Billy Bob Thornton and the Boxmasters, Pokey LaFarge, Corb Lund, The Reverend Horton Heat and Jason Eady.

The Band features Brian Johanson on lead vocals and guitar, Lance Ruby on lead electric guitar, Ansel Foxley on Dobro, Cameron Collums on upright bass and a rotating cast of amazing guest musicians.
