"What a band! Sweet Thunder really entertained a sold-out crowd  when they first appeared at our club. So professional, with a no-fuss attitude, top-notch players and a terrific repertoire that includes lots of great dance tunes.  They clearly love what they do and they share that enthusiasm with the crowd.  I recommend them without reservation; we couldn't wait to book them back."
