Gimme Sugar Bio
Gimme Sugar is a collective of Rolling Stones enthusiasts with a central focus on performing their iconic music with the intensity that the Rolling Stones are so widely famous and popular for. Their number 1 priority is to have fun. The band formed under the idea of paying homage to friend Andy Cottage who suffered a massive stroke in December of 2018. Several of the now formed Gimme Sugar band members performed the songs “Dead Flowers,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” & “Honky Tonk Women” at a benefit to help raise money for Andy and his family. That is where the idea for this band was born.

Bob Hughes on vocals, Ron “Paco” Kokay on guitar, Jake Parks on keys and backing vocals, & Bobo Adkins on guitar filled that stage with such energy and power performing for Andy. It was there that Bobo knew they had something special. He spent the next several months convincing them that it was time to start Gimme Sugar. Hughes gifted vocals have such passion and rawness, and his immersing stage presence truly makes him the star of the show. You just simply cannot stop watching him perform. Paco brings a true love for the Stones and annihilates his strings on songs like Tumbling Dice and Paint It, Black. Watch out for him, he is a deadly sniper on guitar. Bobo is just as ferocious and a near violent gunslingin’ guitar player. He puts every ounce of energy and emotion into his playing and performances. While he performs the music of the Rolling Stones, he channels his inner Terry Kath when it comes to attacking a guitar. One simply cannot say enough about Jake Parks. One of the most gifted musicians on the CLE scene, Jake is a multi-instrumentalist who fills every gap in the Gimme Sugar fold. His vocals can be heard throughout the night, singing the infamous parts of Keith Richards. Jake is an all-star utility infielder, who can pitch, play outfield, and hit homeruns as well. His value cannot be overstated.

Dick “Thunder” Dahl and Bobo Adkins have a long history of making music together. Bobo knew if he could get Dick to join the band on bass that this team would become a locomotive freight train. Dick Dahl is easily one of the premier bassists in all of Northeast Ohio. Never heard of him? Skeptical? Come see for yourself. Dan “the Secret Weapon” Kiss was brought into the band by lead vocalist Bob Hughes, having performed several Stones tunes together in their past. Dan came in a few months later and from Day 1 lit a fuse underneath the team that propelled them to where they are today. Without Dan, the band may not exist today. His drumming is one of a kind, as he is the engine that gives the band their insatiable energy. Keep an eye out for his vocals, as he is a key ingredient to the harmonies you hear as well. Becky Grano, a life-long Stones fan, came onboard and added an elegance and discipline that the band desperately needed. She is the quintessential bandmate, dependable, gifted, and always prepared. The band is immensely grateful to have her on the team. Her keys playing is both beautiful and compelling, and when she steps out in front of her keyboard to take a lead vocal, WATCH OUT! This woman can absolutely belt it. The icing on the cake is Luke “Dr. Smooth” Gifford. The tones that erupt from his tenor saxophone will captivate audiences for years to come. With the recent addition of Ruby Tuesday, we all are fortunate enough to hear him play flute as well.
