THE SWEET SUZI BAND
True survivors. An absolute original. Breathtakingly bare and honest. New York City Saviors. These are a few of the acronyms used to describe The Sweet Suzi Band. Steeped in a blues/rock gumbo, but dripping with soulful droplets, The Sweet Suzi Blues band's meteoric rise from NYC club heroes to International festival headliners is nothing short of legendary.
With dirt under their feet, the band originated in some of the grittiest NY tri-state area clubs and bars. The band, comprised of professional touring musicians with decades of experience between them, dedicated themselves to a musical journey that would blur the lines of Blues, Rock, Soul, and Psychedelia. Turning any-size venue i...nto southern juke-joints is their specialty, and their legendary performances, led by Sweet Suzi's sexy and unstrained moans of pure blues goodness are well documented.
In just a few short years, The Sweet Suzi Band, with uncompromising integrity and a brutally fierce work ethic, has toured most of the US, and much of Europe, to wide critical acclaim and overwhelming fanfare.
Today, anywhere The Sweet Suzi Band performs becomes a must-see on the musical calendar. From the mud of the Southern US, to the dirt and dust of the NYC area, to the green plains of the Northern UK, Sweet Suzi and her band of renegades are there to satisfy your cravings… For an honest, well-groomed, saucy piece of blues rock American pie.
