We were fortunate enough to have the Sugar Bees play for our Wedding, December 5, 2009. They were so easy to work with and so personable that we felt like we had known them forever.



Everyone felt at ease and danced the night away. They had a floor show that was just magnificent. Everyone had a great time and participated the whole night.



We would use them again and again and hope to do so in the future for other family members Weddings.



I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a good time and to feel at ease.

I am an event planner in South Carolina and The Sugar Bees provided the entertainment for a wedding I planned and coordinated in September 2010. The event was on Edisto Island, SC, so the band members all had to commit to travel to be at the event. What an amazing group of people! The Sugarbees were so easy and accommodating to work with and helped make planning for the event smooth. They met all of mine, and my clients', needs and special requests. The band arrived early for set-up due to the layout of the wedding ceremony and reception. All band members were early and prepared to entertain the guests.
They played to crowd from cocktails to dinner to dancing under the stars. All the guests raved about how much fun they had, how wonderful the music was and what a great band The Sugar Bees were!
Overall, The Sugar Bees made my event a success. I was thrilled with every aspect of the band, and so were my clients! The experience was perfect and I would recommend them to anyone look for great entertainment!
