This is the website for SWEET45, a tribute to SWEET.
SWEET (sometimes billed as THE SWEET) were a Glam Rock band that rose to worldwide fame in the 1970s, with their most famous line-up being: Brian Connolly (lead vocals), Andy Scott (guitarist), Steve Priest (bass player) and Mick Tucker (drummer).
SWEET45 are a tribute to this era of SWEET. Formed by the members of 70s Glam Rock tribute band, Glam45.
Using no backing tracks, samplers or artificial harmonies (unlike some tributes on the circuit) just four highly talented and experienced musicians with a re-creation of the great SWEET live shows from the 70s that fans know and love.
Playing alongside the likes of 70s legends such as: Suzi Quatro, Slade, Alan Merrill and the Arrows, Showaddywaddy, Mud II, The Rollers, Rubettes, Alvin Stardust plus many more, members of SWEET45 have honed their playing skills for many years.
They have played festivals, auditoria, theatres, clubs, holiday camps, hotels, conference centres, armed forces bases, sports stadia and outdoor events, in the UK and Europe, presenting their professionalism and showmanship to several hundred thousand audience members at countless shows over the years.

SWEET45 are available for 70s themed; tour support or single show slots, holiday camp shows, birthday parties, weddings, corporate events, divorce parties(yes they do exist) and other occassions. We can perform a one hour set of SWEET's Glam Rock Classics for your event.
For private events SWEET45 are completely 'self-contained' and can bring along; full PA, lighting rig, full drumkit, amplifiers and guitars. We can usually fit in most places but prefer approximately a 4m x 3m area or larger to set up in.
We require access to the venue at least two hours before guests arrive to load in and soundcheck with a secure room for costume changes and to keep away from your guests, preferably close to the performance area.
If any of these are a problem please contact us as we will try to be flexible if we can.
Please be aware that both SWEET45 and Glam45
are generally booked well in advance, sometimes as much as 18
Please check the Gigs section on this page and the Glam45 Gigs page for dates that we are unavailable.
For obvious reasons Friday, Saturday and Bank Holiday Weekends are usually the most in demand.
To avoid disappointment please contact us as early as possible.
If we are already booked on the date you require this year why not book us now for next year's event to avoid disappointment.
If possible give us your prefered date first but then some alternatives if this is feasible.
We can, sometimes, move our dates at venues given enough notice, so it still may be worth getting in touch to see if we could play your event.
We will try our best to accommodate your needs.
