The Sweeny The Sweeny "Family" Band

The Sweeney "Family" Band is a comedy show with tons of music & fun! These boys might be a few bricks shy of a load, but they know how to keep an audience entertained. There's lots of audience participation and they even induct the entire audience to be "Sweeney Cousins". They've been performing this act for 15 years. Each one of them is a veteran or current entertainer at Disney, Universal Studios or Sea World. They are a throwback to the days of Prohibition and would have been a great addition to the movie "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?". You never know what you'll see with this great act. It's like watching The Smothers Brothers, Jimmy Buffett, The Three Stooges and The Grand Ole Opry all at the same time! Enjoy the music and fun of The Sweeney "Family" Band! They are a hoot!
