The name of two gropus of musicians

1. Today’s “Sugarbear” consists of Ivan Bailey on bass, John McLaughlin on lead guitar, and Eric Chick on drums. Ivan and John have been together about 44 years. Started out in Miami as “The Goldtones”, later changed to “The Roustabouts”. Moved to the Ocala area and became “The Merger” and in 1972 changed the name to “Sugarbear”. Eric joined in 2002.

The band is still very popular all around Marion County. Check out their website at
Their sound is sweeter than ever!

2. An American band who released one self-titled LP in 1970. A charming chunk of rural rock from the Sunshine State. Originally released on No Label Records (NR5392), this four-piece outfit from Florida (named after the hip American ’70s singin’n’guitar-playin’ cartoon character, Sugar Bear) have managed to produce an album of high originality which defies categorisation. From the rock’n’roll opening track, via the superb ‘Honey Love’, and the album’s two standout tracks, ‘Season For Love’ (vaguely reminiscent of Neil Young’s ‘Southern Man’) and ‘The Garden’, this is a record of real depth and intelligence. Three of the band’s members share the vocal duties, as well as taking turns to deliver some highly-proficient harmonica playing that, particularly on ‘Honey Love’, supports excellent instrumentation.

    Is there some way to edit this band's pages? As the writer below indicated, one of the pictures depicting the group is not them! The music selections provided is not their music! There are groups out there with similar names and the need to cleanup this mess is sorely needed. The genres indicated and tagged on the pages are so far off base it is funny. They currently are a classic rock group and the information on this site should reflect what they do.

    The Sugarbears shown in the photo and info written is NOT the same Sugar Bears that you have music for. They are NOT a rap group.
