Vocals: The “front gal” who provides warm, crystal clear lead vocals for Sugah Daddy
is the first to say that while she loves singing lead, she also enjoys singing those tight “Manhattan
Transfer” style backing vocal harmonies for which Sugah Daddy is so well known. Though Wendi’s
experience includes everything from studio work to classical and jazz ensembles, her favorite by far, is
singing with Sugah Daddy. She loves it, and it shows!
Brian "Krupa" Kilman
Drums: The driving force of the rhythm section has studied such greats as Gene
Krupa, Buddy Rich, and Louie Belson. Though Brian has played with other fine musicians, in recent years
he had the privilege of playing in a band with John Crawford from “Berlin”. His versatility is apparent, but
his heart and soul are with Swing and Blues.
Dana Philip Angle
Guitar, Vocals: Dana is a seasoned veteran of stage and studio. Dana’s resume
includes professional touring for seven years and he has taken part in a dozen albums that he has either
produced or co-produced, winning the CCMA “Album of the Year” as producer in 1997. His versatility and
experience on guitar, enrich the Sugah Daddy experience, and provide backbone rhythms and screaming
lead guitar solos.
Kurt "Buffalo" Schenk- Bass, vocals: Kurt hails from Buffalo, New York. This seasoned veteran excels
in playing music of any genre. Playing since his early years in high school, Kurt has developed a
style of playing that keeps the energy level up for Sugah Daddy, while allowing the band's dynamics to shine
through all night long.
Keyboards, vocals: Theo is a regular on the US concert and recording scene. Bishop has
toured with too many acts to mention and been musical director for many national acts. Having written
songs for such artists as Solomon Burke and Jeff Kashiwa, Theo brings excitement to the Sugah Daddy
stage with his original swing, jazz and blues tunes. After many years of performing jazz and blues, Theo
adds an all world flavor on piano and organ and might even sing a tune once in a while.
Trumpet, vocals: Connecticut native, got his start in marching bands, appeared with east coast
favorites such as The Steve Smith Band, Johnny and the East Coast Rockers, MassConn Fusion, and is an
original member of Motown Review recently celebrating their 25th year reunion. He produced “Sounds
of Newport Beach” in 2004 and participated in numerous recording projects. His heart remains in rhythm
and blues, soul music, and style is reminiscent of Louie Prima with a desire to engage the audience.
Eric Letta, “Teach”- Horns: Eric is an exciting, creative saxophonist who specializes in finding a groove
and building on the energy of the song. His roots are deeply grounded in jazz, but his style incorporates
many genres. Eric spent the first ten years of his musical career playing in jazz/show bands, on some
well-known stages such as Nighttown, the House of Blues, the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, and Progressive
Stadium. Eric also released a full-length solo album entitled “Say,” featuring his original compositions.
Horns, vocals: The Daddy-O's networker that is at home rounding out this horn
section’s swinging "wall of sound”, with a high flying soprano, a stratospheric tenor, or poppin' it down
low on his funky Bari sax. While Dan has played with numerous groups and artists throughout his career,
most noteworthy being in the Temptations horn section, he’s always quick to tell people that none of that
was more fun than being in the moment & swinging’ it with Sugah Daddy.
