Sugar Ray & the Bluetones

Sugar Ray & The Bluetones — the multiple award-winning blues band has been entertaining audiences all over the world since 1978.

Every appearance that Sugar Ray & the Bluetones make at the Ganny is special, and we are more than thrilled to have them in the house!

Sugar Ray & the Bluetones have been playing their unique style of blues the world over for almost forty years.  Not limited to one style, but able to play Chicago Blues in the style of Muddy Waters. Little Walter and Billy Boy Arnold; Kansas City Swing in the style of “Big” Joe Turner; Texas Blues like “T” Bone Walker and Freddie King; and the swampy Louisiana sounds of “Lazy” Lester-all played with the distinctive originality of band leader Sugar Ray Norcia, vocals and harmonica, guitarist “Monster” Mike Welch, Anthony Geraci at the piano and Hammond Organ, Michael “Mudcat” Ward playing acoustic and electric bass, and drummer Neil Gouvin. 

All the members of Sugar Ray & the Bluetones have been featured on other Artists recordings which include Hubert Sumlin, John Hammond, Johnny Winter, Otis Grand, Pinetop Perkins, The Mannish Boys, Sugaray Rayford, Debbie Davies, Duke Robillard, Ronnie Earl and many more.

Recently inducted into the Rhode Island Hall of fame AND nominated for 5 music awards from Severn Records including Best Instrumentalist -Sugar Ray Norcia
– Harmonica; Best Instrumentalist-Michael ‘Mudcat’ Ward- Bass; Best Album of the Year, Best Band of the Year and, Best Traditional Blues Album. We are so excited to have them at the Narragansett Cafe!

 Sugar Ray Norcia was also the front man and vocalist for Roomful of Blues from 1991-2000. As a vocalist, Sugar Ray has a unique and instantly identifiable style, more croon than growl, smooth as silk, yet infinitely expressive. His harmonica work is the equal of any.

 Sugar Ray & the Bluetones, blues at it’s finest; one of those shows NOT to be missed!

Great blues, cold drinks, a fabulous menu, and LOTS of DANCING. A wonderful way to spend a fun afternoon with family & friends at the Ganny!
