OC Music News already told you about the new ‘90s festival popping up in August, and now we can tell you the headliner is… Sugar Ray!
The Newport Beach pop rockers responsible for “Fly,” “Someday,” “Every Morning,” “When It’s Over,” and “Falls Apart” will help launch Flannel Nation on August 13th in San Pedro.
We were introduced to Sugar Ray with their 1997 single, “Fly” off “Floored.” The attention helped propel their 1999 album, “14:59,” up the charts with help from “Every Morning” and “Someday.” The songs were on repeat on radio stations in the ‘90s, and in 2019, the band released what may be the most perfect album for this seaside event. “Little Yachty” came along 10 years after their previous album and the first single, “Make It Easy,” captures the summertime jams. Seriously, listen to it and see how long it takes you to kick back with a blended cocktail topped by a fancy umbrella.
