Art on the Rocks: Sweet Crude

Art on the Rocks: Sweet Crude

Boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, Sweet Crude seeks to reconnect with their Louisiana lineage in the context of 4-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks. In just two years as a band, Sweet Crude has had an amazing ride winning the 2014 Big Easy Award for “Best Emerging Artist” and being nominated for “Best Rock Band” at the 2015 Best of the Beat Awards. Even more compelling is that they already graced the main stages of BUKU Fest, Festival Internationale, French Quarter Festival and more. Additionally, the band made their New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival debut in April 2015. Beyond such notable bookings, Sweet Crude’s music has been featured in FX’s American Horror Story. Sweet Crude has tested their frenetic sound on the road, packing venues from New Orleans to NYC taking their energetic music and their mission of preserving Louisiana tradition far and wide.
