The Sweetbeats is rated #1 in New England for weddings 2013, 2014 and 2015 by The Knot magazine and website!
The Sweetbeats consists of some of the top professional musicians from Boston and New York, who make their living exclusively by music.
The members of the band have worked, performed and recorded with some of the finest names in the music market including Steve Wonder, Sting, Tony Bennett, Nancy Wilson, Patrice Rashen, just to name a few.
One of the main differences between our band and a lot of other bands out there, is that we celebrate your wedding with you and not just putting another check mark in our busy calendar! We are not the type of band that randomly puts a bunch of different freelancing musicians together and trying to sell it to you as a working band. Our musicians stay in the band for at least two years and go through an extensive boot camp training, rehearsing and performing with the band about 100 shows per a year. Also, we're not only musicians, but the entertainers! We have an exciting show going on with The Sweetbeats with dancing with the crowd, showmanship and a lot of fun! That's what brings us a success and all year round work.
The Sweetbeats will perform at any event – weddings, corporate and private parties, anniversaries, bar/bat mitzvahs, clubs, indoor and outdoor concerts and more. The Sweetbeats can play either a nice background music or can keep you on the dance floor all night long!
