It’s safe to say there aren’t many bands in Northeast Ohio like The Sweet Delights... Considering The Sweet Delight’s imaginative m lange of country, rock, soul and funk, it’s not a stretch to paint the band as falling into the current indie rock zeitgeist emanating from Brooklyn, where genre lines blur with impunity.

"One thing The Sweet Delights are serious about is having fun, putting on a great show and making sure everyone in the audience has fun."


"Right around midnight, dressed in formal attire, a herd of musicians known as The Sweet Delights took the stage. Throughout the show, many of them appeared to be wondering the stage aimlessly, which works with The Sweet Delights’ satirical songwriting."


- Valley 24

Bio

Formed in the late 90's, college friends Obie Savage and Sean Tress recorded "Sweet Milk", 20 lo-fi tracks filled with samples and Casio riffs. It wasn't until seven years after "Sweet Milk" that the two reformed and teamed with George Lyras to begin work on a follow up album. Seventeen new tracks were recorded and the release of "Sweet Sweet Delights Baadasssss Songs" EP was teamed with outrageous stage perfomances. Through several changes of live backing members, the band found itself complete with its current eight man line up and went straight into the studio to record what can be considered their official first album, "Sweet Science". Losing the samples, the band spent 15 months drawing from their heavy influences of soul and funk to complete the album. The album is to be followed with touring through the summer and fall of 2009.
