This is the second of our blogs which will be highlighting some of the very best party/corporate/wedding bands in the UK. DM Audio is proud to have regularly supplied PA and backline equipment to them all and if you’re looking for first class entertainment then you may like to consider one of these acts.
The Sway Allstars Orchestra are a party/corporate band for hire with a difference. Unlike many other bands they didn’t meet in the theatre or on cruise ships . They all met while working for major stars of the music industry like Robbie Williams, Enrique Iglesias, Kylie Minogue and Ronan Keating while on tours or on prime time TV shows. They were also the house band for The Queen’s Jubilee Concert.
They have since performed all over the world for royalty and film stars such as HRH Prince Charles, Princess Alia of Jordan, The King of Bahrain, Samuel Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. They have been invited to play on private yachts in Cannes harbour, in Las Vegas and Sun City (South Africa) and have also performed with a celebrity who’s who of guest singers including Smokey Robinson, Ellie Goulding, Alexandra Burke, Conor Maynard, Ashford & Simpson, Kym Mazelle and Deniece Williams.
Richard Branson has taken a particular shine to the band and they have been invited to play at his house several times and have performed at nearly every Virgin Atlantic Flight Launch Party for the last ten years. They were also asked to play at Virgin Atlantic’s star-studded 25th birthday party in New York in 2009, performing with Fat Boy Slim.
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 is guaranteed to have your guests talking about “that band!” on their way home. They play rock, pop, soul, disco, funk, Klezmer, Motown, RnB and background music. The usual set length is two hours but they have been known to play for five hours straight without a break!
The whole band usually performs in elegant white but other options are available on request. Sway also has a wealth of experience in entertaining different kinds of people from many cultures, age-groups and backgrounds including Jewish celebrations.
So if you don’t want to book a stuffy old function band and are looking for a band with a difference, book Sway!
