The difference between The Sway Allstars Orchestra and all the other bands around is that our background isn’t in theatre or cruise ships it’s in the mainstream music industry. We all met working for acts such as Robbie Williams, Enrique Iglesias, Kylie Minogue & Ronan Keating on tours and TV shows such as Later With Jools, TOTP, The Charlotte Church Show (house band), The Queen’s Jubilee concert (house band) & This Morning.
We were first put together to play for Tony Blair’s Cabinet at a private party in Westminster attended by past & present Prime Ministers & cabinet members and their wives.
Since then we have performed all over the World for Royalty & film stars, on private yachts in Cannes harbour, in Las Vegas, Sun City – South Africa and with guest singers Smokey Robinson, Ellie Goulding, Alexandra Burke, Conor Maynard, Ashford & Simpson, Kym Mazelle and Deniece Williams, Lemar and Nicole Scherzinger.
We have played for HRH Prince Charles, HRH Prince Andrew, Princess Alia of Jordan, The King Of Bahrain and Samuel Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin.
We play rock, pop, soul, disco, funk, Klezmer, Motown, RnB and background music and and usually play for around two hours but have been known to play for five hours without a break!
We’ve become the ‘pet’ band of Sir Richard Branson having played at his house several times and performed at nearly every Virgin Atlantic flight launch party for the last ten years and the star-studded Virgin Atlantic’s 25th birthday party in New York in 2009 (where we performed with Fat Boy Slim) and The Palms Hotel, Las Vegas in 2010.
We have built the reputation that if you want the best band for any party or event, without having a stuffy old function band, you book Sway!
…but don’t just take our word for it – ask around! If you want the best – who is the ‘must have’ band?!
Sway offers a level of musicianship and professionalism of the very highest level that can be dropped into any kind of event anywhere in the world and we will guarantee that it’s “that band!” that your guests are talking about on their way home.
The whole band usually performs in elegant white (but please ask for other options) we have a wealth of experience in entertaining different kinds of people from many cultures, age-groups and backgrounds including Jewish celebrations.
