Yeah, there are barely any original members left in the Sweet. In fact, this is one of those cases where there are two versions in existence. Bassist Steve Priest’s Sweet tours the U.S. and Canada, while guitarist Andy Scott’s Sweet plays Europe. So we get the former and, while purists may scoff at the credentials, Priest has assembled a band that does the classics justice. Essentially, this is an evening at the Whisky where you get to hear tunes such as “Ballroom Blitz,” “Little Willy,” “Fox on the Run” and “Blockbuster,” one after the other. It’s British glitter — just have a good time and don’t take it all too seriously.

The Sweet plays with The Swansons and Henry Gayle at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 9 at the Whisky A Go Go.
