sway at spirit awards 20

Wembley Stadium for Watford FC

At the end of every season every major football club in the land has an awards ceremony to mark the achievements (however large or small) that the players, the staff and the club itself has made. We were luckily enough to be asked to be involved with Watford FC’s awards dinner which was held in the Bobby Moore Room at Wembley Stadium. This is a beautiful huge function suite built into the stand on one side of the stadium, and we have played there before, but it’s always nice to be able to open your set with the words “Hello Wembley!”

“Hello Wembley!”

We played live walk-on stings for all the awardERS and awardEES during the ceremony so we loaded in at lunchtime and rehearsed with the crew and all the speakers throughout the day. Live stings are much more impactful and impressive than recorded impersonal stings. It’s something that we’ve been specialising in for many years now and it always adds a little bit of magic to the proceedings. All the players, staff and top brass of the football club were there which made it a very glam night.

Take a look at the couple videos from the night. You may spot us!

After the Awards ceremony we went straight into a party set, the lights went down, the dance floor filled up and the party really started. We kept that dance floor full for two hours until they had to pull the plug. There were winners and losers but, thanks to Sway Allstars, they all went home singing and dancing!

This is what they had to say about us:

“Absolutely brilliant band who added a completely unique element to our awards dinner as well as getting everyone up off their feet to party the night away! Thank you very much for bringing our event to life, you were great to work with and I’m looking forward to having you back for next year’s event”
