As individuals in the local music scene, Shannon Sweetman and Tessa Barnes join together their years of skill and undiluted charm into one fun DJ duo, specialising in wedding and event music services.


Shannon is known as one of South Africa’s top female DJs with over 10 years of success under her belt. Not only has she produced her own radio show and appeared as a returning guest DJ on both 5fm and Goodhope fm, she has also released a full-length album together with fellow DJ hot shot, Lady Lea, touring the country to launch the CD, ‘Kiss FM’, in over 27 venues nationwide. As an all-round creative, with a multitude of projects on the go, Shannon now adds ‘The Betty’s’ to her list of pursuits and believes that this is exactly what the industry needs.


Tessa, the other “Betty”, has fused her talents in every combination possible since the early age of five. She found herself drawn to the performing arts which became her means of expression throughout most of her life. After graduating as a qualified sound engineer from Cape Audio College in 2001, she’s enjoyed a variety of creative collaborations as a singer-songwriter alongside other local artists, in the recording studio as well as on stage. She currently indulges in a few of her other passions, including lifestyle & wedding photography and working with animals. This “closet” muso knows a toetapping tune when she hears it, and brings a bundle of energy and fun to this exciting duo.


With over 35 years of musical experience combined and two lifetimes of creative expression,  The Betty’s are a fun, fresh addition any dancefloor. Their music offering is broad and accessible, while their professionalism and can-do attitude makes them a DJ dream team!
