Bittersweet Sound Productions represents two generations and over thirty years experience providing entertainment for weddings, banquets and private parties.
In 1972 Joe Auriemma Sr. formed the band Bittersweet, which quickly became one of the capital district’s top wedding and banquet bands. Over Joe Sr’s 27-year career with Bittersweet, he became extremely respected in wedding planning and execution. He published a wedding guide that was read and used by thousands of brides.
In 1986, Joe Jr. joined the band as a full-time member. In 1988, Bittersweet became the first “live” band in the Capital District to incorporate a DJ into their performance, thus providing continuous, uninterrupted music. This is where Joe Jr. began his career as a DJ.
Over the next several years, Bittersweet continued to lead the industry in providing entertainment at weddings and private parties. Recommended by banquet managers, photographers and other musicians, Bittersweet performed at over one hundred weddings a year in New York, Vermont and Massachusetts.
Eventually, as changes in the wedding industry developed, Bittersweet moved away from “live” music and eventually became a full-time DJ service. With this change, Bittersweet Sound Productions was born, with Joe Jr. now orchestrating wedding receptions as well as working with brides, banquet facilities and photographers.
