I have been transported to other worlds before but nothing quite like this - your concert in Vancouver was STUNNING and fantastic - I am thrilled to have seen you and met you all and loving the new CD. Even more fun enjoying the show with Michael - please get in touch if you're ever in Vancouver again and would like helpful tourist advice! CHEERS!

From the drummer's first note you blasted us out of our normal lives and made us listen like mad - and we did -listen to every note you all played and sang. And it was magic, and big and awesome, so Thank You!.

Saw you at Union Pool last night. Hadn't heard of you before, what a treat! You guys are incredible. I jumping off to itunes now to buy your insanely great, inventive music. Thanks.
July 20, 2009
Hey, saw you in Krakow- first during the Jazz Klez, then the Shalom. You're incredible- a big "thank you" for proving that music still can be a great mystic moving force, and for taking the absolute best of two seemingly different worlds of sacral and rock? alternative? music. I hope to see you again next year, this time fully prepared for this unusual experiendce, but excited all the same:)
July 12, 2009
There is fairest group in the world Sway Machinery .Concert in crakow - great event
July 8, 2009
I am under great impression.
You hit in my heart .
July 8, 2009
Went to your concert last evening not knowing your music; left deeply touched and excited by your group's spirit and talent. As a gentile living in the East Village, it makes me happy to know that these rich musical and cultural traditions continue to blossom in new ways.
July 5, 2009
There were a amazing parformance at Krakow's Jewish Festival in Poland. Really enjoyed it. Extraordinary show, not so Jewish, not so psychodelia, not so progressive. Excellet mix. Thanks
July 5, 2009
Thank U for great show in Kasimir, Krakow! ;-) see U soon here in Poland!
July 5, 2009
Saw you in Krakow.....great!
Would be interesting to see you att other folk/rock european fesivals.
June 8, 2009
We really enjoyed your concert last night at the DCJCC. Especially after Jordan was kind enough to bring us ear plugs! Loved the music but these old ears just couldn't handle the volume. Great to see the exciting collaborations of the next generations. Thanks.

Dear Friends, a little 9-year old girl is crying out for our help. Olga is sick with cancer and urgently needs 100,000 Euro for bone marrow transplantation. Her parents do not have this money, but hope that kind and mercifull people somewhere in the world still exist.
In order to continue her life, a little 9-year old Ukrainian girl Olga Netyukhailo desperately and urgently needs your help.
Olga was diagnosed Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (blood cancer) and currently needs 100 000 Euros for bone marrow transplantation from unrelated donor.
This type of surgery cannot be made in Ukraine, therefore, Olga's parents brought a girl to Israel. Olga is hospitalized in "Hadassah" hospital (Jerusalem) and is staying there since December 2008. During these 3 month girl has been prepared for surgery - getting chemotherapy and waited for remission. But in addition to cancer, it was discovered that Olga's lungs are infected with fungus, which makes the treatment more complicated.
I saw your band at the world financial center tribute concert toJohnny Cash tribute. Your choice of instruments was interesting and sounded great! Your band reminded me of the 1980's band "Pigbag" because of the, to me, quirky rhythm shifts in both bands. That's a compliment! Do you have any CD's available yet?
April 3, 2009
You guys were amazing last night. First time I have heard of you and your music blew me away that I had to buy your cd. I cant wait until the next time you guys are back in town!
April 3, 2009
Show absolutely ROCKED in Boston Wednesday night! Too bad Brian wasn't there, but, well, just no words! AWESOME!

I just gave a listen and I'm really sorry I didn't see you men perfom live. Thanks for the C.D. It's a definite that I'll be at your next City gig.

Oh man, you guys were incredible tonight! The music you're playing is fantastic, I only wish there had been more space so everyone could dance!

Wow! I used to live very near where your performance will be tonight and now I am in the country 2 hours north. But I am loving your music from here, believe me. Just discovered you erev yom tov! How cool is that!

My son, Joshua Urist, introduced me to the world of Jeremiah Lockwood and Sway Machinery. I was blown away by what I saw and heard. JL has fulfilled his stated intention (in his project description for his 6 Points Fellowship) to revive and revitalize cantorial music, and he has done so in breathtaking fashion. It's great that there is mainstream support for Jeremiah Lockwood's talent and vision. I'm thrilled that I got to hear him and his group live in Prospect Park in the Celebrate Brooklyn! festival. I was already invested in the group, since Josh's friends include Sway Machinery's Stuart Bogie and Colin Stetson, buddies from Michigan, but Jeremiah Lockwood's soulful transformation of cantorial music mesmerized me. -Rochel

you guys can't wander on over to new haven, can ya?
January 17, 2008
I saw the Sway Machine in Williamsburg and was incredibly impressed. Not only did the band give me one of the best concerts I have ever seen, but they are something new - something you don't see everyday. Every member of this band makes the music - but especially the drummer who gives such a fresh style to a what I consider a boring part but essential part of the band.

I would like to buy the dvd, where can I get one? :)
September 19, 2007
I heard your stuff on the Mendy DVD. It is incredible!! I am not Jewish but I have loved all the Jewish music I have heard and I am putting yours up around the top!!
August 17, 2007
It's not the age it's the mentality. I'll be there for Rosh HaShannah. Can't imagine a better way to bring in the new year!
August 3, 2007
when are you guys coming to the san francisco bay area?
March 20, 2007
I saw you in Houston 3/14/07 and I loved the music. Terrible audience though - I need to see you guys when more than 5% of the audience is younger than 50.
