ABOUT THE SWEET
British rock band “The Sweet “aka “Sweet” rose to worldwide fame in the 1970s as one of the top three “Glam Rock" acts of its era. This movement carved out a decade of new style and horizons for both music and fashion, which in turn helped fuel a new sexual revolution, embracing an "anything goes" attitude into western society. The Sweet’s influence has been touted and revered across many genres, from Boy George to Kiss, to Poison to Guns & Roses. In an interview on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, lead singer for Guns & Roses Axl Rose gave credit to two bands that influenced him the most growing up.Sweet is indeed one of the leading architects that changed music and fashion forever.
Decades later, the late great founder Steve Priest came out of retirement to put together his version of how he wanted his legacy to be presented, represented, and preserved into the future. After hearing drummer Richie Onori and keyboardist Stevie Stewart, he enlisted two more top-caliber musicians that could equally capture and deliver with the same intensity and prowess as his original line-up did. They were off to the races performing hundreds of shows around the globe.
Today, Stevie and Richie’s talented line-up proudly features the amazing Patrick Alan Stone on lead vocals, blazing guitarist Jimmy Burkhard and keyboard wizard Dave Shultz. With the upcoming release of “Little Miracle,” The Sweet is poised to capture the hearts and minds for a whole new generation of fans.
The group's live show boasts the massive iconic hits that additionally are being continuously placed in blockbuster movies such as, “Guardians of the Galaxy 2”, "Suicide Squad," and the “Black Phone” to name a few among countless TV series and commercials.
The group is dedicated to carrying on the legacy and tradition of The Sweet well into the 21st century and most importantly adding on to the band's heritage with thrilling new music that respects the integrity of the sound, quality, and energy of the early group. It is an extension of the same alluring eminence that the band always projected. No two songs ever really sound the same, which adds to the groups mystical and enduring sound and originality.
