But What About Beyoncé’s Band?
Whether you’re a fan or not you have to admit Beyonce’s Knowles performance at the Super Bowl was full of explosive energy. Her 13-minute performance included a 120 dancers, a 10-piece all female band and several back up singers.
Then there’s the Super Dome staff, stage, lighting and costume designers, the choreographer, the hair and make up folks, the list goes on.
It’s no surprise Beyoncé is getting all the attention but since no one else is talking about the musicians that made that performance happen it’s a great opportunity to highlight the band.
Beyoncé says she started the 10-piece all female band called “The Sugar Mamas” so young girls could have more role models.
“When I was younger I wish I had more females who played instruments to look up to. I played piano for like a second but then I stopped,” Beyoncé said in a statement. “I just wanted to do something which would inspire other young females to get involved in music so I put together an all-woman band.”
Meet some of the band members that make up Beyonce’s band “The Sugars Mamas.”

Beyoncé and Lady Gaga Are Collaborating on a Music Video!
Pinch me, I must be dreaming. If this is true, my head will surely explode:

Grazia reports: “According to an inside source, Beyonce will don a feathered dress and Lady G, ‘something wild… the fashion is sick and insane.’ We’ve seen one, leaked, backstage photo of Lady G, wearing a white leotard, elbow length white gloves (very A/W 09) and canary yellow heels.”
