I had a chance to ask Barbara “Suga” Baxter some questions about the Sugar Pills debut at Blinkers in Covington, KY last week.
1. How did your debut show at Blinkers go?
It went from spectacular to over the top! From the spectacular entrance in a 1963 black Continental convertible with horn blaring and Sugar Pills squealing to the over the top standing ovation received by the Sugar Pills All-Girl Ukulele Band.
2. What did you like the best about it?
The enthusiasm of the audience. There was such a positive response from the crowd to everything we did!
3. Did you get some good feedback you’d like to share?
People really enjoyed the fact that a serious mission can be presented in a fun way.
4. What were some of the songs you played?
“Sugartime,” and Barbara’s original song “Shake Your Sugar Shaker!” and several others.
5. Was there a crowd favorite?
They loved EVERYTHING we did! A crowd favorite was “Sugartime.”
6. When/Where is your next gig?
7. Who made those super cute outfits?
Glinda – the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz. (ed: we think she may be playing coy on this one, lol)
