Sweet Taste

Sweet Taste


Sweet Taste blend the funk of James Brown, the Soul of Aretha Franklin and the blues of the deep, American south with 60's and 70's rock'n'roll, creating a sound to dance, laugh and cry to.

Pounding drums. Deep, grooving bass. Electrifying guitar, and vocals that range to kingdom come and back.


Sweet Taste are a band based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, who blend funk, blues and soul with 60’s and 70’s rock and roll, creating a sound that is unique, yet universally familiar.

They released their debut, self titled, 3-track E.P in September 2009, to great public and critical acclaim. Since then they have adopted a relentless touring philosophy, which has moulded them into one of Ireland’s most sought after rock acts, as well as receiving extensive radio airplay in the U.K and Ireland and further overseas. They have played some of Northern Ireland’s premier rock venues, such as The Limelight, The Spring and Airbrake and The Empire Music hall.

In September 2011, they were nominated to play the “Highway to Hell” competition in Glasgow, making a shortlist of 24 bands out of an initial 700+. They placed third in the competition, winning a covetous slot at Hard Rock Hell in December 2011, where they shared the stage with Black Stone Cherry, Therapy?, The Quireboys, Crash Diet, and dozens more.

A new, CD release coming soon. A U.K and Irish tour will follow.

"An all singing, all dancing mix of nice guitar work, well planned beats and pure, honest vocals." Phil Allely - Total Biker FM

"Irish boys Sweet Taste are snapping at the heels of The Black Crowes with their swagger and groove." - Viki Ridley - Rushonrock.com
