"Sugar, Sugar" Inducted Into Canadian Songwriters HOF
Congratulations to Montreal native Andy Kim on his "Sugar, Sugar," being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame this past Sunday, February 5, 2006. Andy was on hand at the black-tie gala to perform the tune, which was a #1 smash hit for The Archies in 1969 and garnered a gold record and RIAA Record of the Year honors. Andy co-wrote the tune with Archies producer and main composer Jeff Barry. Contrary to some reports, however, it was not Andy singing on the Archies single but rather Ron Dante (above left, with Andy), who was the lead vocalist for the group.
Andy and Ron are performing together tonight (February 11) at the Lake of The Torches Resort & Casino in Wisconsin, along with Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods. Have a great show, guys!
