Oklahoma kindie rockers The Sugar Free Allstars have won the SonicBids contest to perform at this year’s Austin Kiddie Limits, the family-friendly venue that’s part of the annual Austin City Limits Music Festival in Texas.
Blending New Orleans funk, Memphis soul, Hammond organ-drenched gospel, with the occasional disco and hip-hop beat for good measure, The Sugar Free Allstars present a “funky fresh” soundtrack for any party. Their new CD is called “Funky Fresh and Sugar Free.”
The Allstars will play the Austin festival at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9 and 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 10. Kids ages 10 and younger get free admission to the Austin City Limits Festival.

The Sugar Free Allstars are Chris “Boom!” Wiser (lead vocals, keyboards, saxophones and bass clarinet) and Rob “Dr. Rock” Martin (vocals, percussion). The duo has been making funky-fresh music for families for five years. Their first family music CD, “Dos Ninos,” received national critical acclaim and regular plays on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio. The new Sugar Free Allstars song “Tiger in My Backyard” and other tunes get regular rotation on Sirius-XM’s “Kids Place Live” show.
See the Allstars’ bouncy new animated video, “Cars and Trucks,” after the break.
