Suga Lu Band is fronted by acoustic singer/songwriter Lu Dulvarie aka (Suga Lu). Currently a Townsville local, and originally from The Sunshine Coast is a self-confessed “musical” late starter. Discovering her gift age 30 and quickly found herself frequenting original music venues on the Sunshine Coast. Meeting Steve Schultz in that time has culminated in a 20yr friendship and various music collaborations.
Since forming as a duo in 2012 to perform Palm Creek Folk Festival, Suga & Schultz have, despite geographical differences
From Townsville to Buderim, maintained a level of continuity and growth.
The release of “Sista” in 2015 saw the introduction of percussionist Dave Thornton to the studio live recording and the band. The launch at The Bison Bar was to a sold out show with the venue at capacity.
Mid 2015 introduced Ian “Christo” Christensen (ex lead singer of 80’s Townsville band “The Spliffs”), to the lineup as bass player, and third part to the already beautiful harmonies.
Suga Lu has been described as relaxed familiar and embracing, a kind of chicken soup for the soul. The songs capture life experiences and observations of human interactions beautifully.
Suga & Christo leave for a small tour down south with shows at The Bison Bar, Chill Café 89 , with the appearance at Caloundra Music Festival being a highlight of the trip – Suga Lu Band . Caloundra Music Festival boasts a huge line up including Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Cat Empire, Guy Sebastion, Blue King Brown.
Due to geographical distances, Suga Lu as a duo with Christo work to their strengths and utilise the talent they have to create a very workable duo.
