Sway was founded by Andy Hilfiger and Ted Utz back in 2011 in Dave’s basement…(who’s Dave?). It didn’t take long for these two lifetime musicians to get it together and reach out to a few other locals including the current line-up of Lou Young, Tory Ridder and Mike Bishop. “Sway is spreading the word that R&R is alive and well! Rock n Roll & Blues is at the core of our original compositions and our unique list of classic cover songs.” The band was named after that great song on The Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers!
Based in Mamaroneck New York, Sway performs regularly in the New York area, with road trips to Upstate New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
