My wife and I were looking for a band for our wedding. We lived in NYC but were getting married in Maine, had no time to scout out local bands or really do much research. A friend who had just been married (and who had had Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies play their wedding) said that he could make things easy for me by simply hiring Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies. I didn't know anything about them, my wife knew even less about them, but everyone I asked who had been to their wedding couldn't stop talking about them. I'm not kidding when I say these people would just go on and on, gushing over them endlessly.
Now I'm one of those people. If there was one thing that is a must have for your wedding, it is this band. Whatever youtube videos I watched prior to our wedding did not come close to capturing their energy, enthusiasm, or above all their professionalism. Make no mistake about it- you are hiring absolute pros when you get these guys. Eytan (band leader) has the poise, presence, and capacity to MC your evening and keep the flow going. The band members are all personable, charismatic, and make you feel as though they would rather be nowhere else. At least half a dozen times throughout the evening, beginning right after we were introduced, Eytan personally approached both my wife and I and asked "how are YOU doing? Can I get you anything?" If we needed a glass of wine, he made sure we had a glass of wine. It wasn't an act- it was him making sure we got what we wanted on the biggest day of our lives.
More about the band. They played for 4 hours, more or less straight, with the only breaks being for rounds of group photos. By the end of the evening there was a sweaty, elated crowd of our friends and family chanting for the band to go on, to play one more song, no one among us wanting them to stop or for the evening to be over. When it did come to an end, I asked Eytan if I could get him a drink, wanting to celebrate with him for all that he had provided us with. His reply: "I appreciate it but we don't drink on the job." Not rude, not standoffish, just another example of the true professionalism of Eytan and his crew.
Make no mistake about it- hire this band. If you're wavering because of the cost, or because you haven't seen them in person yet, or you're not sure if they play your type of music, please do yourself a favor, put your fears aside, put yourself in Eytan's capable hands and part with your hard earned cash. You have enough stuff to micromanage and worry about. This is easy, and it will be worth every penny.
There were a lot of amazing things about our wedding. Our venue was great. We could not have had better weather. The food was pretty darn good. But in the 2 1/2 months since we were married I have received more compliments on Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies than anything else. I feel writing this review is the least I can do to show my gratitude for what I consider to be the best dance party I've ever been to. I'm just glad it also happened to be my wedding.

The Sugarbabies band was absolutely AMAZING at our wedding! They're not only an amazing band, but full out entertainers. I highly recommend this band for your special occasions. They really go above and beyond to make the day the best ever. Our guests are still commenting on how much fun they had at our wedding. Their level of professionalism exceeds standards. I can't thank Eytan enough for all the times he continued to check in with us during the night to make sure we were having the best night possible. Thank you again for such a memorable experience.

This band made my wedding! Honestly they were amazing. Multiple people came up to me telling me this was the absolute best wedding band they had ever seen. Other came up to me telling me my wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to...but suggesting that it was solely because of the band.
Honestly they might be a bit on the more expensive side, but it is well worth the $$. I can't say enough amazing things about these guys...if you are going to splurg on one thing for your wedding....splurg on them!

When my husband and I first started planning our wedding, we decided there were only two things that would really make the wedding an amazing event: an awesome band and an open bar. While there's little room for error on the latter, there's a huge range for the former and (since we live out of state) we knew there was little chance we'd be able to see the band before the wedding. We loved the energy and vibe in the YouTube videos of Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies so we felt comfortable enough to go with them. This turned out to be the best decision we made around the wedding. I can not tell you how much this band blew our expectations out of the water. The YouTube videos are nothing compared to what this band is really like live. They're not only a band, but full out performers. With that said, one of their many talents is that they can balance this incredible performance without overshadowing anything. Our guests are still talking about how incredible this band was. One guest actually said that her one complaint about the wedding was that every time she went to go to the bar, another amazing song would come on and she'd have to go back out on the dance floor instead of getting another drink.
Beyond their astounding talent, the band members are some of the most gracious and helpful people I've ever worked with. Eytan (the band's founder/president/lead singer/emcee) spoke with us a few times in the period leading up to make sure he got to know us and had a good idea of what type of event we were looking for. He made us feel really confident in our decision and in the stressful times of wedding planning, he actually got us really, really excited. We requested a few songs beyond what they normally do and they were not only happy, but excited to oblige. Eytan checked in with both of us individually prior to the ceremony to introduce himself and see how we were doing. This sounds small, but it really meant so much to both of us. During the reception, the band made the time leading up to the dancing run super smoothly (not an easy task) and were then able to improvise based on the energy level of the crowd. There were a few songs that they could tell were really special to us (e.g., Mustang Sally for my mom, Sally) and they made an extra effort to make these even more special my interacting with the crowd. All of the members of the band seemed like they really cared about making the day special for us and when we complimented them after they were unbelievably humble and gracious. We couldn't believe it when they told us they were doing another wedding the next day!!!
All in all, I can not recommend this band enough. They really go above and beyond to make the day the best ever. It was such an amazing way to kick off the rest of our lives.

My husband and I stumbled upon the Sugar Babies when we were leaving a Red Sox game a month or so after we got engaged at the end of last summer. What was supposed to be "one last drink" turned into closing down the Landsdowne Pub listening to and dancing with the band. The next week we contacted them to see if they played weddings and we never looked back! Booking the Sugar Babies was the best and easiest decision that we made during our wedding planning. They are so great to work with--their energy, enthusiasm and professionalism is beyond compare. A month after our wedding I am still getting compliments about how great the band was and inquiries about how we found them. Eytan was an excellent MC and people were dancing the whole night, just as we hoped. I would recommend booking the Sugarbabies to anyone planning a wedding. They are so talented (they play everything from motown, classic rock to Top 40 hits) and fun to be around. I want to have another party just so I have an excuse to have them play!

Book Them Apples right now! You will be so happy you did.
We had Them Apples play at our wedding at a The Seaport Hotel on 10/12/13. I cannot even express how truly amazing they were!!! Maybe I'm slightly biased because it was our wedding, but I think this was the BEST band I've ever seen and I've been to a ton of weddings. Right from the beginning, Cody and Them Apples were so accommodating and professional. I'm really particular about things and Cody was willing to meet my husband and I in person to discuss our thoughts for how the reception would go, timing, playlist, etc. They were also extremely responsive with email and easy going with last minute requests and changes. Once they started playing, no one left the dance floor!!! They sounded so so so great! They make you feel like you're at a live concert with all of your favorite songs - they are incredible!!! On multiple occasions our friends came up to us to ask for the bands info and to tell us how fantastic they were. Even at one time, a guest came over to me and said "I swear, I thought the song that's playing right now was a recording because it sounds exactly like the original song". They really get the crowd up on the dance floor and interact with the guests too. If you're looking for a band with high energy, extreme enthusiasm and unreal skills, Them Apples is your band! I highly recommend them! We were beyond happy with their performance!!!! I loved every single song they played. They truly are phenomenal and so talented!!!!!

We can't say enough good things about the Sugarbabies. They were absolutely amazing! Eytan was a great MC and throughout the night ensured Dave and I were happy and having a good time - from making sure we had a drink, to checking in with us throughout. They had everyone up and dancing the whole night and did a great job mixing up the playlist, ensuring to play the songs we requested as well as mixing in ones that kept the party flowing. We wanted to end the night with Journey's Dont Stop Believing, and Eytan had a great idea, he said the song before he would tell all the guests it was the last song, so then when that ended, the crowd went wild cheering for "one more song" - and then that's when they played Journey. They even handed over the mic and let my husband and I belt out the last few lyrics. The band did the best rendition of Shout, and even got down on the floor as they played. They were so interactive throughout the night, from the guitar player playing on top of the speakers, to dancing with the guests. They are a true performance band and worth every penny. Our dance floor was packed all night. All our guests told us too how much they enjoyed our band. Book the sugarbabies! You won't regret it!!

Eytan and the sugarbabies are unbelievable!!! Everyone was on the dance floor all night long. If you had the extra money for them I would absolutely recommend them!!!
Member Since: 4/1/2012
The Sugarbabies were AMAZING at our wedding. Eytan continued to check in with me during the night to make sure everything was flawless. They interacted with the crowd throughout the night and had everyone out of their chairs and on the dance floor. I would highly recommend them to any couple looking for a professional, fun, and energetic group of musicians to make their party one to remember. Thank you Sugarbabies!!

The Sugarbabies performed at our wedding in August and we were truly blown away! Not only is the band extremely talented, but they also know how to make a crowd come alive! We loved every second of their performance. They got all our guests up and dancing, both young and old. The band leader really listened to the types of music we wanted played and the band took that and ran with it- selecting the perfect mix of songs to entertain our guests. What's also great about them is that they're a young fun group, which means they're able to play the latest music on the radio and not just the older more classic wedding tunes. We also had a few members perform during our cocktail hour, which was the perfect addition!
Having moved out of state, it was very difficult to research and find vendors remotely. This band came with the highest of recommendations from the various venues we visited as well as from some of our friends who had attended weddings with the band in the past. They are great communicators and stay on top of your needs. Our guests are still raving about the Sugarbabies and we could not have been more happy with their performance.

So let me start of by saying how I came upon finding Sweet Tooth and the Sugar Babies. Last summer, while enjoying a beautiful summer night in Newport, my fiancé and I came upon Newport Blues Café and decided to check out the band that was playing that evening. From the second we stepped foot inside the cafe I instantly knew that I wanted STSB to play at our August 2013 wedding. I loved how the band interacted with the audience and they were so fun that I couldn't help but start to dance and the friends we were with were impressed by them too! After that night I began corresponding with Eytan and he was super helpful and answered all questions I had prior to booking. Even after booking the band we stayed in contact with Eytan throughout the year and he was always prompt to respond to all emails. Alright now fast forward to our wedding in August in Newport, RI…. I cannot say enough great things about the band and Eytan! They were absolutely amazing and I wish I could get married all over again just so my husband and I and all of our guests could dance the night away with the Sugar Babies.. Eytan kept things running smoothly throughout the evening even when my MOH had a mini breakdown because she was nervous about giving her speech Eytan jumped into action to help calm her down. Once the crisis was averted Eytan got things moving and the dance party started! All of my guests flocked to the dance floor and started tearing it up and from the very start the band was AMAZING!!! They aren’t your typical wedding band and that’s what I love about them.. They interact with the guests and they literally got everyone on the dance floor.. I had guests of all ages who attended the wedding and STSB played a little something for everyone. I still have guests coming up to me and raving about how awesome the band was at our wedding. If you are looking for a band that will have your guests raving about what a good time they had then Sweet Tooth and the Sugar Babies is the band for you!! They exceeded my expectations and they were worth every penny!!!!!! And I seriously can’t thank Eytan enough for all that he did to ensure that my wedding day was a night that my husband and I would never forget.

If you want to have the time of your lives, Sweet Tooth and The Sugarbabies are the band for you. They played at our wedding on Cape Cod and were unbelievable. We had countless guests come up to us during the ceremony and after to say how ridiculously freaking good the music was. The dance floor was mobbed from the very first note until the last. Not only did they play songs that provided the party atmosphere we were looking for, but the band checked in with us personally two or three times over the course of the night to make sure we were having a good time every step of the way. Eytan made planning ahead of time a breeze, quickly putting us at ease by answering all our questions in a timely manner in the weeks and months leading up to the day. If you're looking to dance your face off at your wedding and are hoping your guests will do the same, look no further.

The Sugarbabies were an awesome, fun, and entertaining band! I can't say enough how thrilled we were to have them perform at our wedding. They kept the night flowing and got everyone on the dance floor. Eytan was great and easy to work with, he helped make the night seamless. He kept in contact with me right before the wedding to make sure we had everything we needed too. So many of our guests came up to me at the wedding and still now telling me how great they were! You will not be disappointed if you book these guys for your wedding!

My now-husband and I looked into the Sugarbabies band after a friend mentioned that she was using them for her wedding. We went to see them play live in the Boston area several times - the first to get an idea of who they were and how they sounded - the other times it was because they were simply amazing and so much fun to watch and hear. When it came time for our wedding, they did not disappoint. They delivered the best wedding performance I'd ever witnessed (in my humble and unbiased opinion). Beyond the music itself, which kept our guests on their feet the ENTIRE reception, they were complete professionals from a business standpoint and continually stayed in communication with our coordinator and myself throughout the night to make sure we were pleased with everything. I can't say enough about the job they did. It speaks volumes that we've had countless compliments from guests and several who have now sought them out for their own upcoming events. They are truly a gem of a vendor - I recommend emphatically!

Book this band now. Hands down the best decision you will ever make for your wedding. Eytan is a wonderful band manager and they were the highlight of our wedding. People started dancing right after dinner and did not get off the dance floor until after the wedding was supposed to end. Some of our family members loved them so much- they went to see them at Chello's the next day! I cannot say enough good things about the Sugarbabies- the variety of songs and energy they have is unlike any other bands. They are young and energetic- not like a band who has been doing this for 20 years and playing the same songs over and over again. They are by far the best wedding band around. Book them the second you get engaged.

My cousin and her husband hired the Sugarbabies to play their wedding, and this band was fantastic. As a musician myself, I tend to be quite critical of live music, but there was not a beat or note missed in this performance. With youthful exuberance, impeccable timing, song selection, vocal and instrumental quality, these guys blew me away. Whether you want motown and classic rock (my favorites) or contemporary rock/hiphop/r&b (never my go-to's, but still done masterfully by the SB's), this band can not only play the song accurately, but bring an energy to the room that wasn't there before. Eytan was an excellent MC, and ensured that the guests had a buzz in the air even before the first note was struck. I would highly recommend the Sugarbabies for any wedding or function, and hope to have an opportunity to see them again.

If you are looking for a band that can read the audience and jump start your wedding into the right direction then this is the band to book! Our wedding took place at Belle Mer in Newport RI and we also had guests from Switzerland and Germany. Eytan did a great job to overcome any language barriers and to integrate our international guests! Most important: we received extremely positive feedback from all our guests - they all had a fantastic time - epic fun is guaranteed!

There are not enough words to express how great the Sugarbabies were in all aspects of our wedding. Eytan was exceptional to work with. He was extremely organized, gave great advice, and wanted our wedding day to go exactly as we wanted it to. I felt confident that he would ensure we would have an awesome evening of dancing and celebrating. I had no idea, however, just how awesome the Sugarbabies would make our night. They had almost every guest on the dance floor with their first song and no one left all night. The entire night we had people telling us that the Sugarbabies was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. All of our guests had the best time thanks to the Sugarbabies. Their energy and enthusiasm was contagious. Sugarbabies, THANK YOU SO MUCH! You made our wedding night exceptional, not only for us, but for every guest at our wedding!

My future wife and I first saw the Sugarbabies a few years ago at a private regatta event. We were so impressed we knew we wanted them for our band for our wedding. During the consultation with Eytan Nicholson, he told us that time we saw them was their 3rd gig ever! Now they have 100's of weddings under their belts and they bring the party!
We were so impressed that they came out to Central NY for our wedding. Everyone we have talked to in the past month can only keep on talking about the band and how amazingly awesome they were. The band does rock, and hip hop, and funk, and everything. But the relationship you build with the band beforehand is a unique and wonderful thing. Eytan is extremely professional and easy to talk to and he wants your wedding to be the absolute best it can be.
The band is extremely flexible and given enough time, they can learn a song or two if it isn't in their long song list already. We asked them for "We Are Young" by FUN and that was the last song of the evening. It was truly magical having all our family and friends swaying in a circle while my bride and I danced close in the middle. The band brings passion and spontaneity that opens up moments you will remember forever.
If you've read this far, it is a gushy review, but this is a class act outfit and our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them and their talents. What are you waiting for, book them now!

Eytan and his awesome band, Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies did an AMAZING job at our wedding this past month. Eytan, the main contact for the band, was just awesome! He not only played multiple instruments and sang, but he also did the perfect amount of mc’ing and was excellent to work with. He was responsible for helping us pick the appropriate musician(s) for the ceremony and the cocktail hour as well as organizing the logistics and the order of the evening. His guidance throughout the evening from the very start including the entrance of the bride and groom and their first dance, the speeches, the cake cutting until the very last dance was right on! He worked great with our caterer and everything flowed extremely smoothly from beginning to end.
This 8 piece band itself was filled with at least 3 amazing lead singers and just phenomenal musicians. Our family and friends were awed by their energy and talent and the dance floor was filled for the entire evening……leaving everyone extremely sweaty but indeed very happy. Not only did they sound awesome but they were also incredible dancers and showed this by performing and dancing with us and our guests. The guitar player played his guitar backwards while on Eytan’s shoulders! Everyone said it was the best band they have ever heard. So anyone looking for a band in the RI/MA/CT area, this is the one for you!
Thank you Eytan and the Sugarbabies for making this wedding a night to remember.
Sweet Tooth & the Sugarbabies - Let's celebrate!
In the true essence of classic Motown Revues, the Sugarbabies entertain with a full show rather than just a band. We combine many different styles of old and new popular music with high energy, choreography, and talent to ensure an exciting and memorable celebration for everyone in attendance!
