CHATS WITH SWEETIE

CHATS WITH SWEETIE BANDIE

Sweetie is geared up to rock the stage at Harbord Hotel for Homegrown after a two-year hiatus from the Northern Beaches. Make sure to get tickets to their gig on Friday 17 January, they’re playing alongside Gimmy and Liquid Time. It’s going to be a big one!
 
The band spills the beans on their Aussie favourites as well as some secrets behind the Aussie music industry. Dreaming of Italy for the sheer yumminess, Sweetie also wraps up their travel wishlist.
