Biography: Hometown Sweethearts
Hometown Sweethearts are way more than one of the best cover bands out there today. This may be a bold statement to make, but they can really back it up.

Their wide range of musical styles mirror their eclectic achievements.
The Hometown Sweethearts bill themselves as a "music lovers party band" because they've dug up a repertoire of songs that are timeless, relevant, and most importantly, not played out.

And since this band has been playing together for so many years, they can effortlessly blend one song into the next without a pause. They perform music like DJ's make mixes!
