The Sweet Things sling timeless rock n’ roll served up from the streets of the East Village New York. It’s arena aspirations realized by bar band moxie.
The band formed in 2015, forging a bond based around The Rolling Stones, Johnny Thunders, Izzy Stradlin, old country and blues, and a love for arena rock. There wasn’t a game plan—it was just about the music. The guys had been in various punk bands, and this was a chance to do the music they loved as kids.
After three rehearsals, they stumbled into the studio, the music and whiskey flowed, and they recorded some foundational demos—what came out was natural.
Since that fateful session, The Sweet Things have released singles on Lanark Records and Spaghetty Town Records. Their debut single, “Love To Leave,” was named “Song Of The Week” in Steppin’ Out Magazine. The Sweet Things have performed at The Webster Hall Marlin Room, The Bowery Electric and Beast Of Bourbon, among other venues. Select live highlights include sharing the stage with Toilet Boys (sold-out show), Faster Pussycat, The Dead Daisies, a feature on local news channel NY1, a videoed jam with Jyrki 69 that wracked up 13,000 views in 4 days, and L.A.M.F. (featuring members of Blondie, The Heartbreakers, The Replacements, and The MC5).
The Sweet Things are: Dave Tierney (The Sharp Lads), Lorne Behrman (The Dimestore Haloes, L.E.S. Stitches, The Dead Tricks), Sam Hariss (Stiletto), and Darren Fried (Mazard, Tongue). More often than not, The Sweet Things have been joined onstage by Liza Colby, an Iggy Pop meets Tina Turner force of nature who fronts her own rock n’ soul powerhouse group, The Liza Colby Sound.
