"Just to hear the buzz in the room, everybody was talking about them. We're a little bit spoiled by having them in town, but when people see them in a showcase situation, people who don't normally get to see them are like, 'Wow, this band has a lot of pizzazz,'" he says.

Moore says the band's music (which consists of both original compositions and covers of such standards as Willie Nixon's "Flamin' Mamie") isn't just for blues junkies; it's also for people with limited knowledge of the genre.

"We're able to go out and play music that was written in the 1930s — Robert Johnson, Leadbelly — and reprise covers nobody in our age group has ever heard and make people dance," she says. "We want people to understand it really doesn't matter if you don't like blues music — you damn well might like The Sugar Thieves because it is a lot of fun. We're high-energy, and the songs that we play may come out of the 1930s or they may be songs that we wrote on the way to the bar, but either way, it's bringing a whole new generation of kids that otherwise would not appreciate the genre at all."
