The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes

Sugar Ray

July 13,2022

Turlock, CA (April 25, 2022) – “Spread your Love and Fly” on over to Stanislaus County Fair, this is one concert you don’t want to miss!

The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes Modern Rock Legends Sugar Ray! Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at the Xfinity Mobile Concert Series on the Coors Light

 Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m.  The concert will be hosted by KHOP @95.1 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

            “We are so excited to have Sugar Ray at the fair this year,” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “These unforgettable songs will have you singing along and dancing to your favorite hits”.

            Everything continues to change. Leaders cycle in and out of office. Trends fall in and out of style. Vinyl dies and comes back to life. Television shows go off the air and end up somewhere on the internet.

However, Sugar Ray might just outlast them all. After over three decades, a world without the group—co-founded by Mark McGrath [vocals] and Rodney Sheppard [lead guitar]—feels downright unfathomable. Beyond sales of 10 million records, four top 10 songs, streams in the hundreds of millions, and millions of tickets sold, the band embody the endless summer of popular music and culture.

How many artists still pack sheds a whole generation removed from their genesis? How many acts can claim sharing the stage with The Rolling Stones, KISS, and Sex Pistols, collaborating with Run-DMC, and being interpolated by Post Malone?

We need Sugar Ray now more than ever…

“You could say we’re still performing because the music means a lot to us,” observes Mark. “However, the real reason is it means a lot to so many other people. All the time, we hear fans say, ‘Boy, those songs were so important to me growing up’ or ‘I listened to you on my first date with my girlfriend, and now she’s my wife’. I’m the last guy to brag about this band and the first one to make fun of it, but we wrote some killer tunes,” he smiles.
