The Line Up
Akron Rolling Thunder Vet Fest 2019!

The Swizzle Stick Band, formed in 2007 (or "SSB as we call it for short!) is truly evolved from a jam session! Some band members got together at a party many years ago just to jam and then did it again and again until a band was formed! We've been known to jam out on a tune or improvise something midstream without a hitch. It makes every performance exciting for the listeners and the band. Everyone really has a good time and loves playing music.


The players come from a wide variety of backgrounds - many even studied music in college - covering many genres including jazz, funk, blues, rock, country, classical and more. This diversity of skills along with the horn line gives "SSB" a big sound unlike any other band. We love to see the audience get up and dance and move so we strive for an exciting and fun show!  


We have performed at many venues in NE Ohio and Western, PA including many summer concerts and special events including the Akron Summer Concert Series, Wade Oval in Cleveland, The Stone Soul Festival, First and Main, Lock 3, Springfield Lake's "Rock the Docks", Crocker Park, Bavarian Fun Fest in Sharon, PA and many town community days and civic events in the area. We have played weddings and parties also and pleased the group every time! You can often find us performing at area clubs as well.


The Swizzle Stick Band has been recognized in many local media outlets including The Akron Beacon Journal, The West Side Leader, The Falls Press and Fox 8 to name a few.


We are available for clubs, special events, receptions or about anywhere you want a very professional and exciting Motown/Funk band!
