Chris “Boom!” Wiser (Hammond B-3, lead vocals, saxophone) and Rob “Dr. Rock” Martin (drums, back-up vocals) make up the dynamic duo of Sugar Free Allstars. As Wiser multi tasks the outfit covering bass lines on the B-3 and cranking out Maceo Parker-style sax solos, Martin lays down a rock-solid beat that keeps the heads bopping and hips shaking.

The music is a unique blend of New Orleans funk, Memphis soul and Hammond organ-drenched gospel all wrapped up in a rock and roll package. Add to the mix a touch of pop songwriting sensibilities and a high-energy live show and you’ve got the Sugar Free Allstars.

The Sugar Free Allstars’ discography includes four studio albums, three of which were recorded in part or whole at Bell Labs in Norman, Oklahoma. Bell Labs studio also claims recordings by the Starlight Mints, Mike Dillon (of Critter’s Buggin’ and Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade) and the Flaming Lips. Music from Sugar Free Allstars’ second and third studio releases, Dos Machos and Return of Dos Machos, has appeared in episodes of PBS’ “Roadtrip Nation” and both albums have spent time on the Jambands.com’s top 30 radio charts. Return of Dos Machos also features a guest appearance by Fred Tackett, guitarist for Little Feat. SFA’s most recent release and first kid’s album, Dos Ninos, has received favorable reviews by national children’s music reviewers such as Warren Truitt of the New York Public Library, Stefan Shepherd of “Zooglobble”, and Fred Koch of “Chicago Parent” magazine. The album also made it into Fids and Kamily’s top 15 “Best Music of 2007 for Kids and Families” awards list. The first song on the disc, “Bathtub Boy”, was in the XMKids’ (XM radio channel 116) top 13 charts for thirteen weeks, peaking at #1 for two of them. The band’s songs have also been featured on several community, college and internet stations in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Colorado, North Carolina, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maine, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Michigan, Oregon, and down under in Australia.
