Another Wonderful Ball for Sway

Sway Allstars had a great night on Saturday – another wonderful summer’s ball! This time it was the Regents University London Graduation Ball and what an evening!

rio-carnival-girls-sliceRegents University London is really well established and in the heart of Regents Park. A university populated by many overseas students. This is probably at least the 6th year we’ve played at their summer ball and it’s always and extremely exotic event with the rich and fabulous from all over the world, along with their parents and partners.

This year it was held at The Brewery,  a fantastic old brewery in the heart of the city, that has been converted into amazing function and conference venues as well as a hotel. The theme of the graduation ball was a Rio and Carnival event.

We played some laid back and sophisticated dinner music as the guests came in and then when they were seated there was a demonstration of Capoeira,  a dance with quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed and leverage for a wide variety of kicks, spins and highly mobile techniques – this was an amazing dance, performed by two highly experienced male dancers.

After dinner, the Rio Carnival dancers performed, which was colourful and exotic! And then, the Sway Allstars Orchestra played a fantastic party set.

So it was an evening of thoroughly great entertainment and as usual, Sway Allstars went down a storm!
