I booked the Sugarbees for our formal at a venue in downtown Charleston. They were amazing. Our age range was 18-22 and everyone was enjoying it. They were also active with the crowd which made it more entertaining. They were also cheaper then almost every other band I talked too and honestly were probably better. Book Them!
Response from The Sugarbees:
Thank you for your feedback. We had a blast too! The Sugarbees are happy to hear that we made your formal event special! We hope to hear from you again. Thank you!
The SugarBees are AMAZING! Not only are they incredibily, talented musicians, but they're also super fun and just overall
NICE people. They helped make my wedding perfect from start to finish. Fred was so easy to work with getting everything set up. The band was 100% on time for everything, they sounded awesome, and they put on the best show. Our dance floor was full ALL NIGHT thanks to the SugarBees!! All of our friends and family keep talking about how fantastic the band was. A huge THANK YOU to Fred and the rest of the SugarBees for making our wedding reception a night to remember!
We had great food, good friends but the Sugarbees were the best part of the event.
I booked the Sugarbees for a conference in Hilton Head. The band leader got back to me promptly even though I booked only 2.5 weeks ahead of time. He was great at communicating, and arrived early to set up. The conference attendees enjoyed the music enough that apparently the band was able to book two more gigs in different cities. I would book them again.
I am an event planner in South Carolina and the Sugar Bees provided the entertainment for a wedding I planned and coordinated in September 2013. 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 coctas to dinner to dancing under the stars. All the guests raved about how much fun they had, how wonderf 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 looking for great entertainment!
Thank you so much for joining us. The members had a great time and have given rave reviews! I will definitely keep you in mind for future events.
