What Makes Us Tick

You’ve read our bios, you’ve seen our photos and you’ve heard our music, but we’d like to tell you a little bit more about us. What are we all about? What makes us tick? Read on to get an insight into the minds of the Sway Social boys. If you dare.



We live for music. We love it. Each of us has been in the music industry for years, dare we say it, decades. It’s our bread and butter, our raison d’ĂȘtre. We’re constantly singing, playing and nosing around for new songs to learn. That’s why our repertoire is constantly expanding and you’ll always be able to find something for everyone on our playlist.


We may have mentioned this before, but that’s because it really is the essence of the band. We’ve known each other donkeys years, you could even say we’ve been through the trenches together. Why does this matter? It means we’re comfortable with each other and work together well on stage. The result is a performance that is a completely natural performance that is nothing short of seamless.


They say it’s the spice of life, and we’re not ones to argue. We all have our favourite types of music. Gav can’t get enough of ‘Toto’, while James is a big Freddie Mercury fan. But the thing is, as a band, we like playing all types of music. Playing just one genre would be totally boring, and definitely wouldn’t give us a proper chance to challenge ourselves and flex our musical muscles. This is why our playlist is positively bursting with songs of every kind. From modern to motown, perusing our playlist will leave you feeling like a kid in a candy store.


Not only do we love music, we’re damn good at playing it. Performing is our passion and nothing fuels our fire like a dance floor filled with people. When we put on a show, we really put on a show! With countless live performances under our belts, a stint as the lead singer of a band apiece, and a live gig every single Sunday, we have singing, playing and performing down to a tee!
