Brian KilmanWendi Kilman

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!

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.

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.
