Sugar Ray to perform free New Years Eve concert at Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana

GARY, Ind. (December 6, 2023) – Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana is planning a night of free music to ring in 2024. For the main event, multiplatinum rockers Sugar Ray will perform a free concert on Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana’s Hard Rock Cafe stage on December 31 at 11 p.m. Popular party band The Spazmatics will open for Sugar Ray at 9 p.m.

About Sugar Ray

Beyond sales of 10 million records, four top 10 songs, hundreds of millions of streams, and millions of tickets sold, Sugar Ray — co-founded by Mark McGrath [vocals] and Rodney Sheppard [lead guitar] — embody the endless summer of popular music and culture.

1994’s Lemonade & Brownies took the guys around the world and earned cult classic status for its frenetic and unpredictable hybrid. It set the stage for FLOORED in 1997. The latter’s immortal lead single “Fly” [feat. Super Cat] made them a household name. 21 years down the road, Post Malone incorporated “Fly” in “Sugar Wraith” on the triple-platinum beerbongs & Bentleys. Helmed by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer David Kahne [Sublime, Paul McCartney, The Strokes], FLOORED earned the band’s first gold plaque and eventually went double-platinum.

Two years later, 14:59 bowed in the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200, went triple-platinum, and gave us “Someday,” “Falls Apart,” and their second #1 “Every Morning.” In 2001, Sugar Ray crashed the Top 200 at #6 as “When It’s Over” staked out a spot on the charts. It added another platinum plaque to their walls.

Enjoying a renaissance, Sugar Ray headlined the Under the Sun Tour 2013-2015. They inked a deal with BMG in 2019 and dropped their seventh full-length, Lil Yachty.

About the Spazmatics
