Sway All Stars

From picking your first dance to deciding what you’ll walk down the aisle to, music is a huge part of your wedding, so booking Sway All Stars as your wedding band could be a great way to celebrate V-Day:

We travel the world playing at people’s parties. They write the set lists. We bring the magic!

Sway offers musicianship and professionalism of the very highest standard and we guarantee that it’s ‘THAT BAND!’ that your guests are talking about on their way home.

Sway performs in elegant white (with other options for your delight!) with dance routines, audience participation and a full dance-floor guaranteed.

We have performed for royalty & film stars, on private yachts in Cannes harbour & Sun City and WITH guest singers Smokey Robinson, Alexandra Burke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ellie Goulding & Lemar, FOR Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Alia of Jordan & the King Of Bahrain.

We play pop, rock, soul, disco, funk, Klezmer, Motown, RnB and cocktail/ dinner music with a wealth of experience in entertaining people from many cultures, age-groups and backgrounds.

We’ve become the ‘pet’ band of Samuel L Jackson and Sir Richard Branson (having played at his house several times and most Virgin Atlantic flight launch parties including the star-studded Virgin Atlantic’s 25th birthday party in New York with Fat Boy Slim, the Palms Hotel, Las Vegas, Arca in Tel Aviv and were booked to play in Sao Paulo with Rita Ora in 2020).

We have built the reputation that if you want the best, stress-free, you book Sway!”
