“SUGAR TOWN” was established in 2016 following the disbandment of previous line-up “THE MERMAIDS”. Pauline Berry, Manager and original member and creator of “THE MERMAIDS” along with the same Musical Director and keyboardist Stuart Pearce are also behind SUGAR TOWN.


This band is a versatile multi-purpose covers band with a sophisticated but well known repertoire of those beloved songs you want to hear at your milestone events!
