Best part of our whole wedding
When I first got engaged, we reached out to SUGAR to ask for their available dates for the following summer. Essentially, we would choose a date around their availability. We had been to 2 weddings that they did, and love following them perform locally at events and bars, and we are SO glad we had them be a part of our wedding day. Months later and our friends and family are still raving about the band. They kept everyone dancing all night.Sent on 10/15/2020
During the planning process, I was extremely pleased with their communication. They came out to the space ahead of time to check with the electrical capability, and were wonderfully responsive, encouraging, and professional in every interaction.
We hope our friends will copy us for their own weddings so we can have the pleasure of experiencing them perform again soon!

SUGAR was hands down the best band and I am so glad I chose them for my wedding! Marcy was so responsive to emails and was so easy to work with. The dance floor was always packed when they were performing. My guests had a wonderful time and were raving about how good the band was. If you are looking for a fantastic wedding band then look no further, book SUGAR now!Sent on 09/18/2019

The highlight of our wedding
Working with Sugar was one of the best experiences of our wedding planning. 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 waste time, book them and thank us later.Sent on 09/22/2019

The best band🬟
My wedding guests have been RAVING about Sugar ever since my wedding. Many of my guests have even traveled to see them again since. They are absolutely incredible musicians and people. We had the perfect wedding day thanks to their professionalism and talent.Sent on 11/11/2019

A highlight of the night!
SUGAR was amazing!! Everyone was on the dance floor all night having a blast, singing along, and kept telling us SUGAR was the best wedding band they’ve heard! They’re so lovely and wonderful to work with and have a fantastic selection of songs. Look no further because you’ve just found your wedding band!Sent on 12/30/2019

Hands down BEST wedding band!
As soon as I got engaged, I reached out to Sugar to play our wedding. I love their energy and ability to get everyone on the dance floor each time I see them perform. Music and dancing were some of our top priorities for our wedding, so it was an easy decision to book them!Sent on 12/04/2019
Marcy was great to work with and always responsive. I had a few questions and changes leading up to the day. She made it very easy and never made me feel any stress. Not only did the band perform at our reception, but we were also able to book the acoustic guitar for our wedding ceremony. It was beautiful!!
I highly recommend Sugar to anyone looking for great music, great service, and most importantly great people at their wedding or event! They made the evening into the party I was hoping for. Thank you.
Ashley Daza · Married on 05/04/2019
AMAZING!! SO glad we picked Sugar!
I cannot say enough!!!! Sugar absolutely made our wedding, and our family/friends were out on the dance floor before it even got dark out. Every single person was having the time of their lives and kept raving about our band throughout the night and even still, months later. They were professional, communicative and responsive leading up to our big event. And, day of, they absolutely rocked it! I’m so glad we chose to move forward with Sugar and we can’t imagine our day without them. We chanted “one more song!!!” At the end of the night, and then played one last final song for us before we were Forced to close down the place. By the end of the night, it looked like we were all at a concert with our favorite band. I can’t say enough!!!! You will not regret booking them and look no further :) I wish we could do it all over again!!Sent on 10/30/2019

The BEST Wedding Band!
We were lucky enough to get Sugar for our wedding band and were lucky that they became available on our wedding date. We booked them without seeing them previously perform, based on a recommendation from a friend and seeing all of the great reviews. They were one of the best parts of our wedding! They were flexible in accommodating our song requests, adding music for our ceremony, and feeling the crowd out to keep everyone dancing. Their music appealed to both the younger and older crowd, which meant the dance floor was packed at our wedding and everyone seemed to be having a great time. I would highly recommend them for any wedding or event!Sent on 11/20/2018
Suzanne · Married on 08/11/2018
We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to hire Sugar for our wedding. We were fortunate to be planning a wedding 14 months in advance and were thrilled that Sugar was 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.Sent on 08/25/2018

Hiring Sugar was probably the best decision we made throughout this whole wedding planning process! Our venue told us about Sugar and that weekend we want to Block Island to listen to them and we booked them just a couple days later! Their interaction with the crowd was what really sold us. They played both oldies and newer songs and put their own twist on them. They just seemed so happy to be there performing for everyone! Marcy was always so responsive to my emails and they were very flexible wit our requests. In addition to their long song list, we were able to request two additional songs that they would learn to play at our wedding. All of our guests had so much fun dancing and singing along to Sugar. I wish I could hire them for every single party I throw in the future! I highly recommend them for any event!!Sent on 07/16/2018
Evan · Married on 07/06/2018
As a wedding planner and coordinator, I had the opportunity and pleasure to work alongside Sugar for one of my client's wedding. What a GREAT band! 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!Sent on 07/17/2018
Joanna · Married on 04/07/2018
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.Sent on 09/18/2018
Peter · Married on 02/01/2018
We had Sugar for our wedding and I cannot say enough great things about them! They were always very responsive with answers to questions, agreeable to plays songs we requested and knocked it out of the park the evening of the wedding. From the very first song to the last, people were dancing and could not get enough of them. We have become huge fans of their's and now follow them around where they are playing. Cheers!Sent on 02/01/2018
Eric · Married on 11/10/2017
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.Sent on 01/14/2018
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.
Daria · Married on 10/08/2017
Sugar was AMAZING! They were very responsive and very accommodating! I would recommend them to anyone. My guests are still talking about how much they loved the band, worth every penny!Sent on 10/30/2017

Sugar was beyond our wildest expectations, and our guests were blown away! The music was perfect, and everyone was dancing all night long! Highly recommend this exceptional group of musicians, singers, and entertainers!Sent on 12/19/2017
Katie · Married on 06/23/2017
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.Sent on 12/27/2017
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.
Mara · Married on 10/08/2016
We had first heard of Sugar through a friend that had heard them perform at a local bar. After some research and looking at the reviews, we went to the Wind Jammer to hear them play. They were AMAZING and had the whole bar up and dancing the whole night. We chatted with Izzy and Marcy after the show and were convinced that night that they would be perfect for the wedding. Working with them through contract negotiations, song choices, and logistics was made pretty easy by how responsive Marcy is. That night, they were the one thing that truly made our wedding. Everyone can't stop talking about how amazing they were and the dance floor was so packed all night people were dancing on the carpet. We can't thank them enough for making our night the best!!Sent on 10/21/2016
Ashley · Married on 09/24/2016
My wedding would not have been what it was without SUGAR. I first heard of them when a friend asked me to check them out for her own wedding.... But we soon realized that this was the band for us! Fast forward to our wedding on block island at the spring house... And it was magical. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how amazing our band was! The best part was... I never gave SUGAR a full list of songs. We gave them a few songs that would be nice to hear and then an overview of what we didn't want our music to be like. I told Marcy to feel out the crowd and do what they do best! Not a single person was sitting. We danced from 8pm-midnight, it was truly magical, I would recommend everyone to have SUGAR at their wedding/event!!! I wish I could do my wedding over again just to relive that night!!! Hands down, SUGAR is what you need to make your wedding what it should be. Inquire with them!! Have fun!!Sent on 09/29/2016
Thanks Marcy and crew!
Allison · Married on 09/17/2016
My husband and I have seen Sugar perform numerous times and decided long before we were engaged that we didn't just want them, we needed them at our wedding. When the time came to look for venues we based our search around Sugar's availability. Luckily the starts aligned and we booked them for our September 2016 wedding at Jonathan Edwards Winery. Marcy made the pre wedding process so easy and was always responsive to our emails. Fast forward to our wedding day. Sugar ROCKED!! We new we were in for a special night when after our first dance all 200 of our guests flooded the dance floor for the next song. Seriously, everyone was on the dance floor and it continued that way until the end of the night when everyone started chanting, "one more song, one more song". Our guests are still raving about our band over a month later. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Sugar! Book them! You won't regret it.Sent on 10/30/2016

Sugar is the BEST band ever!!! Our wedding guests never sat down. They all asked where the band was from and wanted them to do an event for them. Our photographer had Sugar at their wedding 10 years ago and she told me that they were awesome then and at other weddings she had done in the past. We did not need another review we were sold. You will not be disappointed you will be ecstatic . Hire them for your wedding or next event!Sent on 08/10/2016
Lucy · Married on 06/18/2016
Sugar is the best band in the area, hands down! They have a huge repertoire from oldies to current music and they are just soooo good! You have options with the number of players (and therefore $$) and the songs you want them to play as well as for how long. I arranged my entire wedding around Sugar's availability because I absolutely had to have them. Everyone has been talking about the band ever since the big day and the experience from my initial conversation with Marcy was top notch, no complaints. So easy to work with and so professional. Cannot say enough good things. If you want a good band you need Sugar!Sent on 06/28/2016
Jordan · Married on 06/04/2016
We had Sugar perform at our wedding this past June and they did not disappoint. We still get compliments from our family and friends! They have such a great combination of both new music and oldies that really got everyone out of their chairs. This band really made our reception come alive! We highly recommend them and continue to see them perform when they are local.Sent on 10/11/2016
Thank you again for making our wedding so special!
Heather · Married on 05/20/2016
I cannot say enough about Sugar! They played my wedding two weeks ago and my guests having been raving about them ever since. Marcy was a true professional in the planning and organizing of my night. I knew I didn't have to worry about anything. They are such a diverse and talented group of musicians and hiring them for my big night was one of the easiest and best decisions I had to make.....highly recommended!Sent on 06/01/2016
