The Sugar Busch is the brainchild of Albert Mizrahi (drums and vocals) and Meyer Benun (guitar, bass and vocals). The two met in the Yeshivah of Flatbush elementary school in Brooklyn, NY in 2006. Having just moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn to start 6th grade, and having no friends, Meyer quickly sought to befriend those interested in music. Shortly thereafter Al and Meyer bonded over their shared love of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium. By high school, the two had gotten into the classics: The Beatles, The Stones, The Zeppelin etc.
Meyer and Al began playing together in 7th grade in Al’s basement. They’d try to play some covers and would often improvise. They started to write songs in 9th grade. These songs were bad. It was not until their first year of college, in 2013, that they started to write good songs.
