Any band that turns "Amazing Grace" into a dance song and then covers Tom Petty has a pretty good idea of what music is all about. It took a few songs before Sweet Japonic got the crowd at Billy's Lounge out of their seats on Thursday night, but once they did, no one went back until the band took a break. The band's improvisations shined through the smoky atmosphere. Sweet Japonic kept the crowd clapping and dancing to the catchy rhythms with their drink of choice in hand. A wide range of ages, 21 and older of course, spanning from local college students to several people old enough to be their parents were among those in attendance
