Sugar Road: The Story

Sugar Road, a longstanding Massachusetts-based band, is made up of a talented team of creative musicians who have been playing together since 2000. They pride themselves on their technical abilities and musical versatility, breaking boundaries with their high energy sound. Currently, Sugar Road is focusing on an eclectic mix of blues, country, and rock covers - songs you don't hear regularly but that will wake up old memories and come to life in our performances. Mixing covers with original songs creates inspiring performances with energy, nostalgia, and adventure.

The longstanding core members of the Sugar Road team include:

  • Roy MacKinnon - Lead vocalist and guitarist Roy has had a storied musical career, performing regularly both in the US and Europe. Roy's abilities cross many styles, from blues to eclectic rock to country with expert picking styles to rival the best.

  • Mark D'Antonio - Mark is a guitar player and multi-instrumentalist who mixes deep-hooked rhythm playing with tasteful leads. He is adept at a wide range of styles and has played venues from the coffee-house circuit to high energy old school rock settings, always bringing an intense energy to Sugar Road performances.

  • Gary Epstein - Gary serves as the rhythmic backbone of Sugar Road, playing drums and many other percussion instruments  to bring texture, depth, and intricacy to all arrangements. He energizes each song, adding expert flourishes while maintaining the song's rhythmic foundation.
