Just wanted to let you know that at our Gala "post-mortem" this week, the vote was unanimous: we want Sway back for 2016! Nothing but positive reports from our Board members and guests. And I love working with you! We have never had a band for more than two consecutive years; the format gets "tired" or the dance floor doesn't seem as busy. That's never happened with Sway - thank you! On to year four!Margaret Armour, Ottawa, Ontario 11/27/2015

Rob, A few days have passed now since Samara and Dov’s beautiful wedding took place and we are still floating on Cloud 9! We cannot thank you enough for making this evening so memorable and special for us! From the start you have been a delight to work with and as we came closer to the wedding you worked so hard to make every detail and song exactly what we were hoping for. The Horas were unbelievable and again I thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into them! All our guests wanted to know where you were from and kept saying how fabulous you were! We danced the night away and even Sheldon danced through the night...now that is really a true testament to how great you were!!! Between David Smith’s extraordinary talent and yours the wedding could not have been any better. We will have beautiful memories forever! With Much appreciation and Thanks!Debbie and Sheldon Wiseman, Ottawa, Ontario

Cannot thank you enough!Dawna and Gary Garber & Family, Ottawa, Ontario
SWAY Band are incredible! My husband and I had them at our wedding last weekend and we loved every minute of their music and genuine hospitality. SWAY Band played lovely cocktail and dinner music for us and then had everyone up on the dance floor, partying and dancing for hours. What a blast! It was a night to remember! All of our guests have been raving about SWAY Band and we couldn't agree more! We thank them for helping us make our wedding day such a huge success.Angela Brammer & Ryan Connolly, Cardinal, Ontario 7/29/2017
Rob and his team were amazing! My husband and I booked Sway Band for our wedding and we could not have been happier. They played all night long and they made sure to play a wide variety of music (Pop, country, rap, old, new...). The guest loved them and everyone danced all night long. Rob was also very flexible and he organized his breaks around our schedule (with speeches, dinner, and more). Sway band also learned our first dance song. Rob’s professionalism and service are amazing! I would recommend Sway band to anyone that is looking for a band in the Ottawa area!Caroline Savage & Phil Bjerring, Ottawa, Ontario 7/15/2017
Rob, we cannot begin to thank you and Sway Band enough. Your performance on Sunday night was epic and spectacular. You kept our party going exactly how we wanted and envisioned. Our guests (many from Montreal) were thoroughly impressed by you and the band and were even surprised that such talent and quality exists in Ottawa. We are thrilled! We couldn't have asked for better! Thank you so much for rocking our wedding!Jess Mender & Sean Timsit, Ottawa, Ontario 6/4/2017
Rob, we can't thank you enough for your amazing performance at our wedding - having live entertainment was so important to us and Sway was even better that we could have imagined.

There are two great things people always remember at any special event; Music & Food!! There are no dress rehearsals in our business. Sway Band & Creative Kosher Catering are a Great Dynamic Duo! Whether it's a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Wedding or just a celebration it's great to know that Sway band and it's amazing leader Rob D'Urbano are first on my list of credits for an evening to remember!David Smith, Creative Kosher Catering, Ottawa, Ontario
I just want to let you know how pleased everyone was with the band on Friday night. You got rave reviews. Our new President Dr Mutchmor said you were exactly the type of band he wanted for his special evening. Thank you for a great night.Linda Teteruck, Ottawa, Ontario 4/18/2019
Well it is your group that energizes everyone. It is truly amazing to see so many people on the dance floor for so long. You know when it is a DJ at an event/wedding we normally just leave or go to the bar. It is such a difference with a live band. You rocked it again!! Thanks so muchFran Chilton Mackay, Ottawa, Ontario 4/18/2019
