Brighton Centre For Easyjet

We had an amazing night on 9th February 2016. Well obviously it was most of the day too but what a great atmosphere! We have worked for Easyjet for 5 years now and this was the 4th Spirit Awards event we have played at. Easyjet are an amazing company and recognise people from the entire workforce worldwide in various categories, from ground staff, cabin crew, pilots and management for their attitude, work ethic and customer service. They have a special awards night just for this.

The awards are held in a different venue every year and we have played at The Brighton Dome, The Indigo and at Wembley – this night was at the Brighton Centre.

The Brighton Centre for Easyjet was a brilliant gig. The crowd, as always, were up for it! We performed live “stings”, (bespoke shots of music) during the awards ceremony as the speakers, awarders and award winners walked on and off stage.

A lot of events have recorded music playing as people walk on and off stage but we performed all the stings live. This is something we love to do and are very proud of – you see this sort of music played on many chat shows like Jonathan Ross, The Tonight Show in America, Letterman, etc.  Not many bands actually perform like this, but Sway Allstars excel at this!

After the awards we did a 90 minute party set and the crowd went WILD!
