Having provided wedding music and musical entertainment for thousands of weddings and events worldwide, we were often asked by clients if we provided other entertainers aside from bands.
We now offer the full range of entertainment options for weddings and corporate events, from fire dancers and magicians to acrobats and stilt walkers, including other professionals such as wedding photographers.

They were absolutely incredible and really fun! We would really like to thank them for making our day even more special!! :) Many thanks, Mariana."
"Os Outbreak foram super profissionais na preparação do evento, tocaram bem, leram bem o publico e criaram um ótimo ambiente para a festa. Ficamos super satisfeitos e recomendamos a toda a gente."
"Thanks to Cloud Nine for our wedding music at Areias do Seixo Hotel! They were great and played a really good selection of songs. They even stopped playing a song when we requested it quite abruptly, sorry about that guys! I would definitely recommend them to get the party started!"
"We just wanted to send across a huge thank you for the wonderful ambiance you created at our wedding! Everyone absolutely loved you and the music, it was such a beautiful, seamless transition from the ceremony to the cocktails. Thank you for being part of creating the most magical day of our lives. We hope you enjoyed the day too, and that you were well taken care of! Let us know wherever we can leave you guys reviews - and we’ll try to collate some photos/videos (in case you want for PR material) that we can send across in case they are of help :) Thank you so so so much once again for being part of creating the best day of our lives. On behalf of all our wedding guests, sending you a huge thank you and our best wishes for all your future gigs! We hope to see you all again soon (let us know if you’re coming over to play in London - we’ll be there!) Best wishes, Alex & Winnie."
"Eu e o Rodrigo optámos por organizar o dia do nosso casamento com a maior simplicidade. Escolhemos o dia 1 de janeiro de 2020 - dia de ano novo -, para dizer o grande sim da nossa vida, diante de todos aqueles que para nós são a nossa família. Em todo o processo da organização do nosso casamento, houve sempre apenas um pedido muito especial da minha parte ao meu marido Rodrigo, que era ter a presença do Ricky, no dia do nosso casamento. O Ricky, para além de ser um grande amigo da minha família, todos nós temos um carinho muito especial por ele, é também um profissional de excelência! Nunca me vou esquecer da felicidade que senti dentro de mim quando cheguei ao Roots e tinha o Ricky a tocar com tanto carinho para nós e do grande abraço que nos deu juntamente com aquele sorriso lindo e contagiante que ele tem. Ricky, meu querido e grande amigo, sabes tão bem quanto eu que tudo isto é pouco para descrever todo o carinho que todos nós temos por ti e o grande e soberbo profissional que és. Obrigada, mais uma vez, do fundo do meu coração por teres estado presente no dia do nosso casamento e por teres tornado o dia ainda mais especial com a tua maravilhosa companhia. Um grande obrigada do fundo do meu coração também à Bárbara por ter sido sempre tão doce e querida connosco, desde o primeiro telefonema até ao grande dia. Obrigada, uma vez mais, por tudo! Por isso, já sabem. Não hesitem em contactar o Ricky para o dia mais feliz da vossa vida. Ele é, sem dúvida alguma, a escolha mais feliz e acertada para o dia do vosso casamento. Acreditem!!! Beijinhos."
"Se o nosso casamento foi inesquecível e moldado à nossa imagem foi também graças aos Swing High. Foi super fácil combinar tudo com a banda, tanto em termos de alinhamento como em termos de logística. Desta forma, tivemos uma preocupação a menos. A forma relaxada e segura como a Margarida dos Swing High tratou de tudo deixou-nos muito confiantes que tínhamos feito a boa escolha. Depois, no dia da cerimónia, confirmámos que não podíamos ter escolhido melhor. O início da cerimónia, com uma música por nós escolhida e tão bem interpretada, de maneira pessoal, pelos Swing High, deixou marca não só em nós mas também nos convidados. O início da festa teve sucesso garantido com o bom ambiente espalhado pela banda. Proporcionaram-nos o final de tarde que pretendíamos, com música bem tocada, bem cantada, sem ser indiferente nem desprendida. Os Swing High sabem o que fazem, não são o centro da atenção mas permitem que a festa ganhe uma dinâmica viva e descontraída."
