Sugar City Sideshow

Sugar City Sideshow - project documentary with Kevin Meehan


Sugar City Sideshow is an unholy alliance of ska, punk, reggae, and americana.  

In Summer 2018, Kevin Meehan hit the acoustic circuit with Billy G, known for his work with Contra Coup, The Stingers, ATX, and as a music doer who has helped countless acts (including Sugar City!) develop everything from studio recordings and record releases to video production, live performance, and booking tours.

While touring European cafes, pubs, and even a festival in Hamburg, Germany, they hooked up with Sergei Schwarzkopf of Studio Longboard. The vibes were sweet enough that Kevin, Billy and Sergei reconvened in February 2019 to record a full length set with multi-sax wizard Mark Wilson at Tweak Freq Studio in Austin, TX.

Look for their release in early 2020, more touring, and check out Kevin’s solo acoustic sets at the Audubon Park Farmer’s Market, Iron Cow, and other indie venues in the Orlando, FL area.

Here is the trailer for the first single, from the album Sugar City Sideshow, due out at the end of February 2020 from Studio Longboard Records

Die Audio Trickkiste – Teil 4 „Der Lautsprecher“

Der unkonventionelle Einsatz von Audiogeräten – von Florian Rosnau Lautsprecher und Mikrofone dienen zur Wandlung von Schall zu elektromagnetischen Schwingungen, jeweils in unterschiedliche Richtungen. Da sie vom Prinzip her den gleichen Aufbau haben, kann man sie auch umgekehrt nutzen: das Mikrofon wird zum Lautsprecher und der Lautsprecher zum Mikrofon.  Das lässt sich prima beim Recording […]
