Sugarpie & the Candymen began in 2008, when five musicians from Piacenza and Cremona – small towns in Northern Italy – joined their forces and the shared passion for swing music, monouche jazz, pop, and vocal close harmonies.

A band was born, with the challenge to marry all these musical styles.

The band is made up of singer Miss Sugarpie, aka Georgia Ciavatta, and her Candymen Jacopo Delfini (gipsy guitar and harmonies), Renato Podestà (electric guitar, banjo and harmonies), Roberto Lupo (drums) and Claudio Ottaviano (double bass).

Very soon the band became a full-time commitment, starting an intense almost non-stop tour in hundreds of jazz clubs around Italy and Europe.

This first period allowed Sugarpie and the Candymen to work out both their sound and their repertoire: their musical caleidoscope has the most diverse artists one close to the other, such as Led Zeppelin and Django Reinhardt, The Beatles and Bessie Smith, Van Halen and Benny Goodman, Guns 'n' Roses and Ray Charles, Queen and Peggy Lee and so on.

The challenge has been won!

In 2010 the band kept evolving and started writing and performing their original songs, both in English and in Italian.

They started playing the bigger stages of prestigious festivals all around Europe, and they even did a brief US tour.

Sugarpie and the Candymen have released three albums under the IRMA Records label, the first, eponymous “Sugarpie and the Candymen” in 2009, “Swing and Roll” in 2011 and “Waiting for the One” in 2014.

Some of their songs had radio airplay on the major public radio stations in Italy (RadioRai1 and RadioRai2) and Switzerland (RSI1, 2, 3). In December 2011 they performed live at the historic radio program Caterpillar, on RadioRai2.

To further enhance their sound, the band had the opportunity to collaborate both live and in the studio with some brilliant Italiand and American musicians, such as Michael Supnick, Dean Zucchero, Paolo Tomelleri, Rudy Migliardi, Gregory Agid, Davide Ghidoni, Gianni Di Benedetto and Mattia Cigalini.

In summer 2014 the band met Renzo Arbore, a very famous Italian TV and radio personality and jazz musician himself, and started a collaboration together on occasions like the Christmas Concert in the Vatican (aired on the national TV in December 2014), the opening night of the Cremona Jazz Festival (April 2015), and the web/radio program Webnotte during the Umbria Jazz festival in July 2015.
