Sugarcraft Debut at The Next Page

February 24, 2013

Music & Entertainment

It may have been a cold, raw February evening this past Saturday night, but things were really hot inside The Next Page in Weymouth as the debut of the South Shore’s newest cover band Sugarcraft was underway. Although these four guys are veterans of the music scene, there’s always a bit of nervousness when something new is underway. They may not have hit everything perfectly, but the support they got from a jam packed crowd of friends and patrons at The Next Page made for for a fun and electric night. I doubt very much that they could have hoped that their debut gig could have possibly gone any better.

Sugarcraft’s set list reads like a set list that you’d expect to see from a rock cover band. They play the familiar favorites like “Roadhouse Blues”, “Rock and Roll All Night” and “Hard to Handle”. They also do some songs that some other, but not all bands are doing like “Superstition”, “Paralyzer” and “Shimmer”. To mix things up a bit, they throw in a few modern Country songs such as “Take a Little Ride” and “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy”. Finally, they play a few songs I hadn’t heard other bands do like “Fall down” and “You May Be Right”. all in all, everything they played the whole night, people were up dancing and having a fun time. Heck, there were people dancing to the iPod during the breaks so this was a charged crowd and the band did a great job in keeping them that way the whole night.

Sugarcraft’s lead singer and guitar player Peter Celestino and Pat Quackenbush respectively used to play in the local band Heat. The bass player Jason Murphy and the drummer Bill Clancy also play in the local band Road Soda. I don’t have any info on where they are next, but definitely keep an eye out for these guys. If the first show is any indication, they are going to be worth checking out. For more info, you can visit their website here or visit them on Facebook here.
