The Cottage Event Center in Roanoke will again celebrate October as Country Music Month on Friday, October 11 with a concert featuring Country Band Sugar Shot. The event is a fundraiser for the Roanoke Kiwanis Club.

Billing themselves as “Hyper-active Country with a shot of Rock,” Sugar Shot features Jen Fisher on guitar and vocals and Gwendra Turney on fiddle and vocals. The group has opened for a number of national touring acts and has been included twice in the Embassy Theater’s popular “Down the Line” Concerts. Sugar Shot also performed at last year’s Fort Wayne Air Show.

Sugar Shot performances include something for every taste from traditional Country to Country Rock. Their song list features everything from “These Boots are Made for Walkin’, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” “Ring of Fire” and “Rocky Top” to “Here for the Party” by Gretchen Wilson, “Pontoon” by Little Big Town and “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The other members of the Sugar Shot band are Matt Roussel, guitar and vocals, Tommy Myers, bass and vocals, and Clarence Boyd, drums and vocals.
