How does 2024 stack up for the band? One word: amazing. 

This year marks (or is it MarQs?) Sweet Crystal's 50th year together as a band! That's 5 decades of the music, message, mission and ministry that you have come to know and support, and we think it's absolutely amazing to look back and see the path God had laid out for us and continues to move us along on even now.

New graphic for our 2024 shows this year...because 50 years of Crystal is certainly a Sweet accomplishment to promote!

Check Out This Very Sweet Review Of What We Do! Thank You Radio Airplay.

Pretty sweet read from the good folks over at Metal Digest (reviewing '7th Heaven'): 

“It is said that the Devil has all the best tunes. This is broadly true. But Heaven has the best choreographers”

Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch 

'Rock and Metal is normally more closely associated with the other guy. The fire and brimstone guy. Horns and all that. Some notable artists however, take their inspiration from above. Sweet Crystal take this a step further by using their music as a ministry, a mission. By the power of Prog they want to reach out with a positive message of God’s love for all.'
