The format provides an exciting and fun event for area high school students modeled after the show ‘Jeopardy’ with a total of four fast-paced rounds.  Students must buzz in to answer quickly, but not too quickly. On the final question of the night, teams risk it all to provide the right answer. How they answer, and what they wager, can be the game-changer.

WHAT: Sugar Lime Blue is capturing listeners with its grooving style of blues infused rock. Drawing from an ever expanding list of original material and far reaching covers, SLB will keep listeners on their toes waiting to hear what is next and how it is going to be played. Pulling from staple R&B artist like Otis Redding, Al Green and Bill Withers, classic jam style bands like Little Feat and the Grateful Dead, and current day rockers like Sheryl Crow, and the Black Crowes, Sugar Lime Blue pulls off a retro type of vibe with a sound that you probably won’t be able to compare immediately to any one artist.
