“The Yankees do it … The Aussies too, as well as the New Zealenders, the Brits and the Brazilians. And that is one of the reasons to why we think it’s about time for us “northeners” to brighten up our everyday rockabilly life by doing the same thing.

This summer Pinups and Kustoms Online Magazine will arrange the first “Miss Pinup Scandinavia” ever in collaboration with Mooneyes Sweden.”

The Sugar Shakers are pleased to announce their involvement in the Miss Pin Up Scandinavia Competition! Its the first of its kind in the northern region of Europe and comes as a welcome addition to the long running annual RatFink Reunion in Avesta. It is run by online magazine PinUps And Kustoms, run by Swedish pinup model MirAnna La More.
The Sugar Shakers have written the official theme song for the event, inspired by the pin ups themselves and the kustom culture lifestyle that they promote.

You can purchase it from iTunes here , along with our other awesome tunes!!!!

Its been a busy few months!!

Here’s a look back at the key events:
Billy, our drummer came back from his New Orleans trip, We kicked off the Cooly Rocks On festival with a 4hr-set in the Marquee, and We celebrated July 4th and all things Americana, 77 floors up at the top of the Q1 building.
We’ve been hanging out at our favourite joint: Lefty’s, and we’ve been working on some new venues and music!!!!

COMING UP NEXT MONTH is the annual Garterbelts & Gasoline Festival!
This years line-up includes a sensational lineup of R’billy, R’nR and roots bands, and The Sugar Shakers will be playing at the Sunday Carnivale
Sunday is the day of the festival that just about has it all, thousands of punters converge on the Tamborine Showground to enjoy hundreds of 1970 or older rods, customs, stockers, beaters, British bikes and vintage caravans. Combine these cool rides with two all day stages featuring rockabilly, Alt country and jump blues bands, kustom kulture art exhibition, lots of green grass with no dusty conditions and lots of shady trees, families are welcome to bring picnic blankets and chill out and take in the sights and sounds of the day, take time and browse through the vintage market vendors who peddle an awesome selection of must have items from frocks to accessories for you ride.
