"Maggie Worsdale is a performer that delivers on every note." Kevin Eubanks - The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
"John Colianni is the essence of a swinging pianist … – THE NEW YORK TIMES

Sweet Whiskey's sound is a mix from all genres - traditional and international jazz, gypsy jazz, blues, country, pop, and original tunes. Traditional New Orleans Jazz meets Rio de Janeiro Sambas - lush gorgeous tones meet foot tappin' swing.

WORLD CLASS JAZZ PIANIST and cofounder of Sweet Whiskey, John Colianni has been a force on the music scene since first working with famed bandleader and vibraphonist Lionel Hampton for three years, at the tender age of 19, as Hampton's band pianist. Add five years and six albums as Mel Torme's personal accompanist and then being chosen by guitar legend Les Paul to become a part of the Les Paul Quartet and you have an idea of what John brings to the table with musical chops – and that just happens to be his nickname "Johnny Chops."

Sweet Whiskey's cofounder, vocalist Maggie Worsdale has performed nationally and internationally and as a budding artist had the pleasure of working with Bob Hope and George Burns, as well as guest singing with Les Brown and his Band of Renown. Maggie has recorded four albums of her own and was chosen as one of the top ten vocalists in the NY/NJ area and honored to perform at the Sinatra Birthday Bash at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ.

Maggie is simply extraordinary. Her voice and range are phenomenal; the Standards come alive as she stamps them with her signature style. Her ability to "read" a crowd and adapt is a godsend. Her choice of accompaniment was amazing as well. We are very fortunate to have discovered this amazing performer. She is prepared, on-time, organized and enthusiastic. My guests were thrilled. THANK YOU Maggie
