Picture of Uncle Sugar & The Sweet Daddies


Uncle Sugar & The Sweet Daddies credits their sounds from growing up with such legends as Charles Brown; innovators such as Glen Miller, Duke Ellington, Las Vegas icons Freddie Bell and the Treniers. And who can forget the humorous and bright vocal styling of Cab Calloway and Wynonie Harris.

Uncle Sugar began as one of the strongest rhythm sections in the nation. It was just a matter of time before the horn section was added giving the band its unmistakable sound... behold the union of Uncle Sugar & The Sweet Daddies.

Uncle Sugar & The Sweet Daddies Are:


Scott Rhiner, Premiere Blues Guitarist. Scott was first recognized on his tour with "Charles Musslewhite"; and with that and eighteen years of diverse musical experience, there was no question he was the man for this musical collaboration.

Bill Bailiey, "Sweet Toe" on "Doghouse" Bass. He is a walking music library. His musical and production credits include house musician at the famed Desert Inn, "A Chorus Line" and "Sophisticated Ladies". Bill's most recent accomplishments include being musical director in Uncle Sugar & The Sweet Daddies. Asked what his fondest memory is, Bill replies, all his musical dates with Mel Torme.

"Dangerous Dave on Drums": always in the pocket, his name says it all.

Chris Hart on the trombone: Chris' trombone never stays quiet for long periods of time. When he's not playing, Chris is a licensed teacher in Clark County and teaches some of Las Vegas' most creative and emerging artists.

"Jumpin" John on the trumpet: John has got the look! His accomplisments include the Bi-Centennial Tribute in New York City for Miss Liberty herself. The most incredible experience in John's life was his participation in the 1986 Olympic Games.

"L.J." on Baritone: L.J. is a Vegas favorite, he moves and he grooves. L.J.'s credits include "Enter The Night" and being featured with the 50's & 60's legends The Dells, Lou Christy, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Little Anthony and The Drifters.

Gary Glitter, Tenor, Alto, Soprano, Baritone Sax and all Woodwinds: For eight years, Gary has been featured in the "All Stars" at the Riviera, on the Strip. And if that isn't enough, when "The Temptations" and/or the "Four Tops" are in town, you can bet Gary is the busiest man in Vegas.

Dickie Pride: A heavily influenced Rockabilly legend of the 80's, Dickie fronts this multi-talented band. He draws his inspiration from such greats as: Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Big Joe Turner, and Mister Boogie Woogie himself, Mitch Woods. Between sets Dickie finds himself reminiscing with old and new friends about the "Good Olde Days". But, one thing for sure, he assures his fans that Uncle Sugar & The Sweet Daddies will keep the "Good Olde Days" music alive and "swinging".
