The difference between The Sway Party 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, Will Young, Gary Barlow, Tom Jones & Ronan Keating on tours and TV shows such as Later With Jools, TOTP, The Charlotte Church Show (house band) & This Morning.
Sway Party Allstars first shot to fame when we were 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, Beverley Knight, Lemar, Ellie Goulding, Nicole Scherzinger, Ashford & Simpson, Deniece Williams and Samuel Jackson!
Sway Party Allstars 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 have been known to play for 5 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!
“You’ll love this band. They’re better than the real thing!” Sir Richard Branson
“We wanted to write and thank you for your fantastic performance at the Barclaycard Summer party – it really was amazing. Thank you!” Jones (Barclays Communications)
