Sugar Bear's All-Star Birthday Bash

Please note: This event has already occurred.
E.U.‘s fanbase is one of the broadest in Washington, encompassing those who remember when “Da Butt” was a cultural phenomenon as well as a newer generation that might have never seen “School Daze” but know there’s something special in E.U.’s funky go-go. Singer and bandleader Gregory “Sugar Bear” Elliott is celebrating his birthday this weekend with a party that promises to bring together two of the genre’s most popular bands — E.U. and Rare Essence — with a slew of guest musicians and rappers at the Best Western Hotel ballroom in Lanham. (Dress to impress is the rule.)
