About this Act

The Sway Allstars Orchestra were originally put together for a one-off event in the late 90s. The organisers needed the best of the best and hand picked each band member from the mainstream music industry and they went down so well they have remained together ever since.

This flexible 7 to 12 piece band have an enviable repertoire too taking in acts as varied as Guns 'n' Roses, Earth, Wind & Fire and Blondie to name but a few. 

With experience comes versatility - having performed all over the world for royalty, A -list celebrities and Forbes listed companies they have built a reputation for giving a fantastic performance whilst being extremely professional and reliable on and off stage. Whether it's background dinner music, Klezmer, rock, pop, RnB or disco Sway will expertly create a set list to exceed all expectations!
