NORMAN — Sugar-Free Allstars to perform

Grammy award-winning musicians Sugar-Free Allstars will bring their music to Summer Reading with a tour of Pioneer Library System libraries.

The 2011 Grammy award was for Best Childrens’ Album for an anti-bullying CD compilation titled “All About Bullies Big and Small.”

The band will perform throughout the Pioneer Library System in June. “Tour” dates are:

Monday, June 18, 2 and 7 p.m. at the Norman Public Library, 225 N. Webster Ave.

Tuesday, June 19, 2 and 7 p.m. at the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard Ave.

Wednesday, June 20, 10:30 a.m. at the Blanchard Public Library, 205 NE 10th St.; and 2 p.m. at the Newcastle Public Library, 705 NW 10th St.

Friday, June 21, 11 a.m. at the McLoud Board of Education Building, 117 N. Main St.; and 2 p.m. at the Tecumseh Public Library, 114 N. Broadway

Tuesday, June 26, 10:30 a.m. at the Purcell Public Library, 919 N. Ninth St.; and 2 p.m. at the Shawnee Public Library, 101 N. Philadelphia Ave.

Thursday, June 28, 2 p.m. at the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library, 2201 SW 134th St.

The band got its break in the direction of family-friendly music in 2006 when the Allstars were asked to play a Show in the Myriad Gardens Twilight Series.

The rest is history.

They went on to record their first album of entirely children’s music in 2007, the same year they did their first tours with PLS and the Metropolitan Library System in Oklahoma City.

This year’s touring performances in the Summer Reading Program are sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma Arts Council, the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, Hitachi, Sonic, the Pioneer Library System Foundation and the Pioneer Library System.
