Thank you so much for your beautiful background Jazz music at our 40 year Medical School Reunion Dinner for 130 people.
You might think that with so much hubbub that no one noticed, but many did and many expressed their pleasure and enjoyment.

Thank you also for making every interaction with you simple, efficient, professional and friendly.

Hopefully we’ll see you again for our next reunion.

My wife and I hired Sway to play our holiday event recently and we were very impressed! The event had a mixed group in attendance of all ages, tastes and backgrounds and Sway was a huge hit among them all! Their musicianship was impeccable and their song choice was perfect. They easily entertained our crowd for over three hours or more. This magnificent trio was even flexible about where they played as half way through the night it started to rain on our outdoor function and we had to bring everyone inside. Within five minutes Sway was set back up and at it in a new section of the room and were entraining the group brilliantly as if nothing happened.

I could not recommend Sway more highly for your small or large event whether it’s a private function or a corporate event. Sway will definitely not disappoint and will exceed your expectations.

Thank you Sway Jazz ensemble for providing such a memorable wedding day for us. Walking down the aisle to your rendition of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is something that will stay with me for a long time.

You were professional, versatile and lots of fun. Having all our guests up and dancing for the afternoon was everything we hoped for.

Matt, you were wonderful to deal with from start to finish and no request was too great. Michael, having “Heya” as part of our third set was a real highlight. Bianca, your voice and range is incredible and our first dance to “At Last” was absolutely amazing. Sonny, your smile is infectious and your cool tunes on the double bass kept us dancing all afternoon.

We will definitely be looking for another occasional to book you again soon.

We booked Sway to play at my husband’s birthday event and were thrilled with their professionalism and repertoire. The female vocalist was very delightful and talented. My husband is an experienced musician and he couldn’t praise them highly enough for their performance and would recommend them for various types of musical entertainment.

We booked the Sway group to play at our wedding day and were thrilled by their contribution to our special day. From start to finish they were a pleasure to deal with, nothing was a problem and their professionalism was matched by their genuine friendliness. Musically they were faultless. We could not recommend them highly enough and hope to enjoy their services again at some point in the future.

Sway played for our end-of-year dinner at Vue de Monde and helped to make it an incredible night. Their professionalism meant that everything ran incredibly smoothly; set list was absolutely perfect for the vibe of the night and they looked a million bucks! I’d recommend them for any function in a heart beat

Michael, Matt and Sonny entertained us at our recent Senior Medical Staff formal dinner. Their relaxed cool groove definitely defrosted our usually stuffy dinner. The boys are professional in all regards and have just booked them for another gig!
