The Big News!

After much deliberation, Emily and I (Candy Lee), have decided to drop the band name "The Sisters Sweet." It created too much confusion, as we were still being associated with previous incarnations of the band, and people seemed to be really upset by the fact that Emily and I are not really sisters. Thus, we have decided to take on the name "Melody Pond." This is a Doctor Who reference, if you're a fan of the show. If not, we don't want to nerd you out, and we'll just say that it's a beautiful name and we hope it invokes the same kind of imagery we create with our sound. Thanks for following my journey, from solo artist, to band, to duo, to other-named duo. We're excited about this new name, this new chapter on our musical journey, and the ability to perform with other musicians if needed, without any confusion as to, "Hey, if you're The Sisters Sweet, who's that dude playing music with you?" So, if you have liked The Sisters Sweet on social media, we're transferring everything over to Melody Pond, and are hoping you don't have to go scouting for our social media pages. 

Upcoming Featured Show:

The Sisters Sweet show with The Ghost Pines from Springfield, MO on Jan 30th has changed location, time, and band members! Whaaat? 

Due to unforeseen circumstances on EVERY front, the show on Jan 30th has changed almost entirely. We are determined to make this work! Candy Lee and Emily, The Sisters Sweet duo, will still be there. The show will now be held at Maxine's Taproom in Fayetteville Jan 30th, 7:30pm. Liz Carney from the band formerly known as The Ghost Pines, will now be coming to Fayetteville with her other band, Bella Donna, which we are especially excited about! Bella Donna is a jazz ensemble influenced by the Ozarks. "The creak of tree limbs in the winter, the summer sounds of cicadas, and the rolling hills off highway 65 have helped influence their sound to create what they like to call 'Ozark Jazz.'"

This is a FREE show. Come show our Missouri neighbors a good ol' Fayetteville welcome! Show them we love Ozark music. Show them we appreciate female fronted bands. Show them, yes, we do go outside our houses in winter. Show them we care about local and regional music. And show Maxine's we support local business. Have a cocktail, delicious gourmet popcorn, and take in and enjoy some truly wonderful music in a comfy, intimate setting.

Join us at the end of the first month of the new year. May it be a good one for all. Hope to see you there!

The Pickin' Post show has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The Ghost Pines are still coming to Fayetteville, so we're throwing a show at Maxine's Taproom! The Sisters Sweet will still be playing too! 7pm-9:30pm. It is now a free show. Come join us for an evening of amazing music, delicious cocktails, and Maxine's famous gourmet popcorn!
