We are so grateful for the top notch job done by The Phonix for our wedding.
It was a 250 person wedding done at the Laurel Packinghouse in Kelowna, which the 9 piece group made the trip up for. We met with Eric about 9 months prior for a meet and greet. He had great energy and we felt that we'd be well taken care of. Little did we appreciate how well taken care of. We felt that the cost for their services was very fair in comparing to some similar calibre bands. We liked the way they communicated through email and forms, and they were responsive and personal. Communication by our main go-tos Eric and Reuben was excellent. Leading up they were very accommodating to have the necessary logistical/equipment options provided for. The day of, they were calm, composed, friendly, and helpful amongst some of the chaos in the final hours before the wedding.
Their rendition of our first dance song was flawless and felt so good to do our practiced 1st dance routine to. Their versatility in learning an intro song for the wedding party into the reception was impressive. They accommodated me coming up and doing a surprise song with my siblings for my bride, which was I was hugely grateful for.
They brought the energy All. Night. Long. Boy did those horns POP. Voices were phenomenal. Great repertoire that we were able to choose from and they mixed to keep the flow going. The floor was packed the entire time. Choosing Phonix for our wedding was one of the decisions that we are rock solid confident was the right choice. Over a month later folks are still bringing up what a killer band it was. They even did an ad lib Mustang Sally with my aunt and all of them absolutely nailed it-- sounded like it had been rehearsed over and over and is a fun memory that we can always cherish.
Full marks for this humble, versatile, professional, accommodating, amicable, and highly skilled crew.
