My husband and I were Lucky Enough to have Swithas Band

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Swithas band play at our wedding; they were absolutely fantastic from start to finish.

We recently went to another wedding and thought the band was incredible, little did we know that Swithas band would completely blow them out of the water. Their song choices were fantastic and suited each stage of our day. Switha sang some beautiful songs at our ceremony, set the mood at the drinks reception and had everyone up and dancing from the first song. I have never seen people hit the dance floor like that but no one could help themselves. Every time I went to get a drink I was disappointed I was missing another great song. All our guests are still talking about how excellent the band were. In addition, they were all incredibly lovely, were willing to learn our first dance song and were wonderfully accommodating. I would recommend them for any event, you won’t regret it.

Thank you so much Switha’s band!

Highly recommended

Silvio’s talents are endless. We all know how much the music is important at a wedding and these guys rocked it. Silvio has so much experience and it really shows… himself and the band had everybody up dancing. 2 weeks later guests are still talking about them. I would highly recommend them…. and might some day twist their arm to come to a party in Ireland too 😉

Best wedding band ever!

The Swithas played at our wedding in June and were simply amazing! All throughout the day the music was awesome and everything ran so smoothly – Silvio and the guys put so much work into ensuring that everything is just perfect. Silvio’s relaxed acoustic set worked great during welcome drinks and in the evening the band were INCREDIBLE – they are fantastic musicians and sound so tight – we have many photos and videos of guests going crazy on the dance floor! We really wanted a band that were the real deal (and not a gimmicky wedding band) – and the Swithas were certainly that. Thanks SO SO much guys – it was the best decision ever to book you. All the best and hopefully see you at a gig in the future! Chris & Faye x

The Swithas band were the

The Swithas band were the absolute BEST and made our wedding party!! The variety of songs they play is so impressive (from latest pop to country to Irish!) and the dance floor was full the entire night. They even took special requests which meant so much to us. All of our guests the next day couldn’t stop talking about how great the band was. Thank you all for a fantastic evening!! 🙂 Stephanie and Matthias 05/07/2019.

Amazing

Silvio and his band played at our wedding last September.

If your looking for a great band and entertainment, look no further. These guys do everything.

No need to worry that they’ll get people dancing and having a good time, they won’t let you sit down.

The other small things make all the difference too, they allowed the couple of small children to play along to songs with a tambourine – this made their day.

Thank you for making our wedding day so special.

Oh but sorry about our friend who decided he could sing and borrowed you mic – he couldn’t sing haha!!

We’ll be back to see you perform again this year.

An amazing wedding band!

Paul and I had our wedding last week and we are still buzzing over the amazing music provided by Silvio and the band. We cannot recommend Silvio and The Switha band highly enough. Our family members provided music at the ceremony and each one have remarked on how kind and helpful Silvio was helping them setup. The acoustic set before dinner was perfect but the best was yet to come. The music during the reception was absolutely brilliant, at one point it looked as though every single guest was on the floor dancing! Silvio’s song choices during the live performance and DJ set were nothing short of perfect, so thank you so much Silvio & team, you were the best! Paul & Lisa x

Incredible performance

Silvio and the band are, simply put, incredible

We asked them to play our wedding after seeing them at a few gigs where they tore it up, and we’re not disappointed.

The floor was packed, each song was flawless including our first dance and I still have people asking me about the band who played at our wedding.

Thanks again guys, you were such a great part of the day

You will not be disappointed!

We had the absolute pleasure of having Silvio and his band play at our wedding reception in Vilamoura in June 2013, and it was one of the best decisions we made. They are not only extremely talented with an extensive song library with something for everyone, they are true professionals and the most genuine lovely people you will meet. We would not hesitate in recommending The Swithas Band for your wedding or event, and get yourself down to The Brewery on Vilamoura Marina if you don’t believe us – you will not be disappointed!!

Silvio and the The Swithas

Silvio and the The Swithas band did our wedding in June 2017, and were absolutely amazing! Silvio sang at our reception and ceremony and also DJ’d until the small hours! Would recommmend Silvio to anybody as he is the best in the business down in Vilamoura or on the Algarve. Totally cool dude, super relatable and so talented! Obrigado Silvio!

Amazing night!

Myself and my now wife Gemma chose Silvio & the band to play our wedding in Portugal on 9th October 2017 – and they were truly awesome.
Silvio has a beautiful voice and did some stunning acoustic covers for our welcome drinks.
The full evening band were incredible, playing through songs we had requested. The wedding party got a bit rowdy (as you do), and Silvio obliged in playing some proper rock n roll covers for the guests to get out the air guitars, including a head banging rendition of Rage against the machine.
We loved it, the guests loved it, and I can’t recommend them highly enough!
Cheers guys 🙂 xxx

Why not?

I challenge anyone who is unsure if they should hire the Switha’s to try find a reason NOT to, after they have heard or seen them! They are an amazing band and true entertainers (not just talented musicians). Two years on from my wedding and the guests are still talking about how good Silvio and crew were.

Peter Serpell

Perfect music

Silvio and his band did an amazing job not only singing for the ceremony but for cocktails and then upping the tempo for a great evenings entertainment. Everyone at the wedding loved them and when we come back to Portugal we have to go and see them as they are always such good entertainment and so much fun.

Awesome Band

The band are brilliant. They play live music from all genres and even played Metallica, Rage Against the Machine and Foo Fighters at my brothers wedding on 2/9/17. It means a lot that they took the time to find out the type of music my brother and sister in law like.
All the band members were really friendly and happy to chat to the guests once the set had finished. They then did a DJ set with loads a varied music.
There was a great atmosphere and everyone had an amazing time

We chose The Swithas band

We chose The Swithas band for our wedding in Portugal on Easter Tuesday this year.
We were given a few recommendations by our wedding planner and as we never got a chance to go see the band play we listened to them on you tube.
Myself and my ‘now’ husband listened separately to a few different bands and we both decided on the same one and we did not regret our decision!
This band were truly amazing and made our wedding day so special. We booked them for the whole day package and we were completely blown away by their professional and their amazing talent, Silvio’s voice and choice of songs were perfect!!
Silvio sang for our wedding ceremony followed by our drinks reception. We were married in a garden villa and the sound of him singing with just his guitar was fantastic. Following the dinner the band played and answered all requests they could and then finished off with a dj session.
I can honestly say that the dancefloor was never empty. The guests are still complimenting us on our choice of band and caterers!! Everyone had an absolute ball.
The band played right til the very end and efficiently cleared up after themselves. They were very humbled by our gratitude.
We told the band we would be heading onto Vilamoura for the next week and they said to call see them. We went to watch them in The Brewery bar and as soon as they recognised us come in, they played a special request for us, our first dance song. We thought this was such a lovely gesture and we chatted and caught up with Silvio, Paul and the rest of the band.
I honestly couldn’t recommend this band enough to anyone. We will most definitely be going to watch them again when back in Portugal.
Trust me, if you choose this band for your wedding day, you will not be disappointed!

Amazing band

We had the Switha’s Band play at our wedding on the 29th May 2017 and they were absolutely amazing. Silvio’s voice is beautiful and the whole band is so talented! Their version of Kings of Leon “Use Somebody” that we had for our first dance was incredible – I may be biased but it’s my favourite ever version. They had everyone dancing all night. Thank you again Silvio and the rest of the band, you made our evening reception perfect x
