(Planning a wedding?)

    “The Phonix was great to work with - from the first email to the final song they played. The band was happy to tailor their entire set list and set times to meet our needs...even during the event. Their set went off so well that we even had competing companies in our industry ask about how we were able to hire such a great band. Really, I can't say enough good things about the band. In an age where it is easy to create websites and social media pages that promise big things, it is very rare to find a group of performers that surpass the hype. The Phonix did it....believe everything you read!”

    Our Event Entertainment Services

    Our flagship band is our 9-piece Dance Band. This size band is what it takes to most accurately and authentically reproduce the old school music that we specialize in. Wedding couples love our 9-piece band for the incredible 3-piece brass section (trumpet, tenor sax and baritone sax), two soulful lead singers and punchy rhythm section. Over our 9 years of performing, we have carefully curated a repertoire that will pack a serious punch for the dance floor and leave your guests talking about your party for years to come!

    We also offer a 7-piece version if you are facing budget or space constraints. This configuration is similar to the 9-piece, but does not include either of the saxophones.
