We hired The Sweetbeats for our wedding and would HIGHLY recommend The Sweetbeats for any event! As soon as I reached out for information, Sergei (the band leader) was extremely responsive and professional. He encouraged us to come see the band at a show--we went on New Year's... Read More Eve and booked them the next day, as Sergei sent the contract through immediately, even though it was New Year's Day. The planning process was extremely organized, detailed, and tailored to our musical taste. Sergei made sure we felt comfortable and even gladly accommodated a special request we had for my dad's best friend to sing "Fly Me to the Moon". The band accompanied his song and even played the song in the key of G Major, as requested by our guest, which is a great example of this band's talent. Each band member is a phenomenal musician, and as many of them hail from the esteemed Berklee College of Music, you can rest assured that the vocalists and instrumental solos will be top notch. On top of their obvious musical talent, this band knows how to put on a SHOW -- with vocalists and back-up musicians alike interacting with the crowd to create the perfect, impossibly fun and unforgettable night. We had The Sweetbeats perform the classical processional songs on the guitar at the ceremony and jazz standards on a grand piano during the cocktail hour in addition to the reception.

Sweetbeats was absolutely amazing!! They were our band for our October wedding at the Wychmere in Harwichport, Cape Cod.

Prior to the wedding he took the time to have another call with us and went over every detail to make sure he had a full understanding of how we wanted the announcements to go as well as the song lists.

They had all of our guests up and dancing the whole night and everyone was raving about how amazing the band was.

I would highly recommend booking them for weddings or any other important events!
