Legendary rock band Sweet (aka The Sweet) shot to the top of the charts in the 1970s, selling over forty million records with such hits as “Ballroom Blitz,” “Fox on the Run,” “Love is Like Oxygen,” “Little Willy,” “Blockbuster,” “Hellraiser,” “Action,” and many others. Even during that decade of excess, Sweet stood out with a charismatic stage presence and a relentless, innovative fusion of grinding hard rock and melodic vocal harmonies that was far ahead of its time.

Universally acknowledged as the “godfathers of glam,” Sweet were and are far more musically sophisticated than they were given credit for in their own time. They have since come to be recognized as an iconic group who produced timeless hits, and they still deliver these songs with an energetic stage performance that appeals to audiences of all ages from eight to eighty.

Toronto’s first album, Lookin’ for Trouble, was released in 1980, and lead single “Even The Score” was a minor hit, just missing the Canadian Top 40. Head On (1981) followed, after which Costello and Fox left the band to be replaced by Gary LaLonde (later of Honeymoon Suite) and Barry Connors (later of Coney Hatch). The band was nominated for a Juno in 1981 for “Most Promising Group of the Year” along with Loverboy, Martha & the Muffins, Red Rider and Powder Blues Band (winner).

This sextet recorded Get It on Credit (1982), with lead single “Your Daddy Don’t Know” reaching top 5 in Canada, and hitting No. 77 in the US. It remains their best-known hit. “Your Daddy Don’t Know” was also nominated for a Juno Award in 1983 for Composer of the Year (the song was written by Geoff Iwamoto and Michael Roth). Lalonde was then replaced by Mike Gingrich for 1983’s Girls’ Night Out in 1983. This album also received attention, as did the band’s Greatest Hits album of 1984. In 1984, Holly Woods was nominated for a Juno for “Female Vocalist of the Year” along with Dalbello, Shari Ulrich and Anne Murray (winner).
