Sweet N Juicy Talk of Fruits and Music!

Trio band SWEET N' JUICY is a songwriting funky, people pleasing music sort of fellas, whose time together thus far, has made them create as well as play music! This band of fruits, literally, have taken the time to talk about their juicy goodness that is this fruity music!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Sweet N’ Juicy started out like any band of fruit fronted by a bass playing banana that writes most of the music: In a tree! Sweet the banana grew up playing with other bananas but left the jungle in search of different flavors of music. He met Juicy the Strawberry (keyboards) in a patch far away from his home and instantly fell with his fruity flavor. Juicy decided to join Sweet on his adventures for flavor, and they became fast friends- traveling from place to place. On one adventure they met Nefertitipharoahsandramundusifilopolis the Pineapple (drums). They couldn’t pronounce his name, but he was warm and as special pineapples can be, so they wanted to be his friend. N’ Joined in on their adventures and from there the three fruit made their way to Portland, Oregon. There they were the house band in a variety show for quite a while. They met fantastic artists, comedians, and musicians and quickly learned that humans love to party! Now they travel the western coast of the United States in search of the best parties they can find.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

It’s our names, silly!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Sweet N’ Juicy all live in Portland, Oregon! The music scene there has all sorts of fantastic bands and songwriters in any genre you can hope for. Rock, Jazz, a thriving Hip Hop scene, even Bluegrass. Portland has it all. Our friend just down the road is DTW (Funk band with horns), Jessa Campbell and the Saplings (Music for kids), and Sam Densmore (Folk Rock) are awesome.

4. How would you describe your style?

We call it Songwriter Funk in Fruit Suits, but it’s just shake-your-booty party music. Seldom do we write a song that doesn’t make us want to dance, and we think others want to dance too.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve released a debut EP (Golden) and a follow-up full length concept record (The Adventures of Sweet N' Juicy) about how we came to be a band made of fruit. Our music is crafted for a good time and parties, so be expecting to wag your finger and shake your hips!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Of course! We’re always writing new tunes. Our newest song is about Portland and the fun things you can do there. Another song we just finished writing is about puppies!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

It’s funny you mention that! Juicy’s on tour with a group through Central Europe right now which has been giving us time to beef up our calendar for Winter of this year and the first half of next year. As a result we have shows all over the US West Coast, including a tour to Southern California planned for most of February of 2020 (check our calendar for more details). Our shows have been described as “…like cartoons for adults” and we get compared to Looney Tunes a lot. Probably because we have adult humor wrapped up in a fruit-flavored smile!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We are gonna party ‘til we drop! Meeting people, playing shows, and getting people to dance and be happy are our biggest goals for the foreseeable future.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Where can’t you?! Let us know so we can put it there, too! Our website has links to everything, or- and I’m serious about this- PLEASE feel free to reach out to us on our Facebook, Instagram, or email, and chat with us! We love to chat. Partying and chatting are basically the backbone of fruit (since fruit don’t have backbones).

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Have fun- we sure do! We love to play this music for people and we love to party. There’s not much more to it than that. Cheers!
