in popular music today. With just fifteen months together as a
group, they have already self-produced two albums, developed a
growing fan base and are challenging the current face of
modern music. Their sound is almost indescribable. Try
mixing funk, jazz, hard rock, and an unabashed love for
improvisation and rock 'n' roll - you might be halfway there.
Sweet Sweet Candy was formed out of a series of
house parties. The band began to fine-tune their lineup and
develop their sound, moving from a funk-jam sound to a more
multi-faceted assortment of musical influences. As their
sound has developed, their loyal fan base has multiplied.
Sweet Sweet Candy draws from a wide variety musical
backgrounds. Many draw from classical training, others
from a purely jazz style, but each player adds their own
secret ingredient to the mix. Their songs, usually written by
multiple band members, are groovy, eclectic, and sure to
make your body move. The band plays original material
with influences ranging from Frank Zappa, to Groove
Collective and James Brown.
If you are still asking, "What is Sweet Sweet Candy?" It is
a band that has a conventional setup, (drums, bass, guitar,
two horns, and two vocalist) but definitely an unconventional
sound. Mixing simple funk and soul grooves with complex
rhythm, harmony, compelling lyrics and captivating
improvisation, it is hard not to love Sweet Sweet Candy.
