Working with Sugar was one of the best experiences of our wedding planning.
posted 09/22/2019 by Margot S
Marcy was incredibly responsive and easy to work with, we used them for the ceremony (a classical guitarist), trio for cocktails, and the full band (we added an extra horn) for the reception. All three pieces were highlights of the wedding, and we highly recommend, but Sugar as a full band was way, way, way above what we’d even hoped for. From their opening they had our crowd out and dancing, brought so much energy to the evening and left everyone wanting more. They nailed our two special request songs (which were offered as part of their quote): Lizzo and Robyn. The songs were executed tightly and sounded like they’d been part of their (extensive) songlist for years. If Sugar happens to be available for your wedding... don’t wasted time, book them and thank us later.
Thank you so much to Sugar for playing at our wedding last month!!

They played the perfect variety of songs that appealed to all ages at our wedding. Everyone was up and dancing most of the night, which is exactly what we were hoping for! They were able to mix in our song requests with their own set list and it flowed perfectly. I would highly recommend Sugar for any wedding or event!
Sugar absolutely rocked the night of my wedding!

Every song they played was incredible and they were a highly entertaining group. As a musician and former performer myself, I tend to have high standards when it comes to live music. Sugar did NOT disappoint! I highly recommend that anyone in the market for a top-line wedding band consider booking Sugar!
We could not have been any happier with our decision to have Sugar as our wedding band.

They are the best. After seeing them perform for the first time years ago, we knew immediately we’d want them at our wedding – long before even being engaged! We were ecstatic to learn they were available for our day. Coordinating with Marcy was exceptionally easy – the band couldn’t have been more professional, reliable and an absolute joy to work with. They’re unbelievably talented and cover every genre in the book. They know how to keep the party going - there wasn’t one song the entire night that the dance floor wasn’t full. Our family and friends still rave about the amazing time they had at our wedding dancing the night away thanks to Sugar. If they weren’t Sugar fans before our wedding, they are now! If you’re looking to have the best time at your wedding, make sure Sugar is there.

We were fortunate to be planning a wedding 14 months in advance and had lots of bands to choose from. Sugar was our first voice and we were thrilled they were available. They were easy to work with, listened to our concerns about music and volume that would appeal to guests in a wide age range and delivered on our every expectation. We’ve heard numerous comments from our guests about how much they loved the band. We asked them to learn two songs for us, one for the father daughter dance and one that my husband really likes, and they knocked it out of the park. We’re looking forward to the next time we’ll be up in New England so we can catch them at the Newport Blues Cafe or one of the other places they play.
BOOK THIS BAND!

Sugar is absolutely amazing! Even if you haven’t heard them yet, if they are available, book them for your event! Marcy, our contact and the main singer in the band, made the whole planning process as easy as possible. We had a wedding in Newport, RI in June 2018 and the band was great! They have a varied repertoire and got everyone out on the dance floor! We got the 8 piece band and extended for an hour- helped make our day even more amazing!
What a GREAT band!

As a wedding planner and coordinator, I had the opportunity and pleasure to work alongside Sugar for one of my client's wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Izzy and Marcy were both very responsive in communicating about the timeline. Then, on the day-of the wedding, they were on time, efficient and courteous during their set-up, they were high-energy and kept the dance floor full the entire evening! One of the VERY best bands I've worked with in all my years. Can't wait to work with them again. I will be recommending them with 5 STARS!
EVERYONE was on the dance floor the entire night

Our top priorities when planning our wedding were band, booze, and food. We wanted to have a party. We were able to get the booze/food part secured through our venue, so when looking for a band, we knew we had to find a group that would get our guests on their feet and dancing the entire night. We had seen Sugar perform many times throughout the years in Block Island, and knew that they were the band for us. Once we found out they were available to travel to Tarrytown, NY on our date - we got excited, and for good reason. Throughout the (extremely stressful) wedding planning process, Marcy and Izzy went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, and answer all of our many questions/requests (we had a lot). The sound and professionalism they brought the night-of was incredible. We had them play during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We also added the extra horn section (trust me...worth every penny). EVERYONE was on the dance floor the entire night - from the youngest cousin to the oldest grandparent. Sugar truly made our night special, different, and fun, and we thank them very much for that. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
Sugar is the perfect band for a mixed crowd because they can play a little bit of everything!

While planing our wedding, our main priority was entertainment, as soon as we got engaged we knew right away we wanted Sugar Band! We actually picked a wedding date based on Sugars availability. We had seen them so many times and they never disappointed. Their high energy gets the crowd up and dancing all night long. Marcy was wonderful to work with leading up to the wedding. She put me at ease, was very organized and accommodating to our high demands. We had the 8-piece band for our 6 hour reception. On our wedding day Sugars enthusiasm and talent really showed. They did a phenomenal job at reading the crowd and were able to know what song to play next to keep everyone dancing, while also taking into account the songs my groom and I loved. After our last song of the night our guests were chanting “one more song!” All of our guests who knew of Sugar were excited for their performance and guests who didn’t know who they were, did after our wedding and some went on to become Sugar groupies! All of our guests still talk about how much fun they had at our wedding. Sugar is the perfect band for a mixed crowd because they can play a little bit of everything! Our wedding was such a fun time and Sugar played a huge role in our happy memories. If you are looking for a talented, high energy band with a huge song list then, I highly recommend Sugar! They will turn your wedding reception into the best dance party of your life.
