Client Reviews

Richard thank you again as well. Everyone had a great time and all the adults were asking the name of the band. I called Cathie Moore this morning as well to tell her she had made an excellent choice for us!! I hope you all had a safe trip back home. Happy Holidays!

- Lillian

Many, many thanks for getting everyone up and dancing. I spent a long time talking to Tom Johnson this morning, and he was raving about you. He said you were the easiest person to work with and he just loved your music. His staff kept commenting on how many people were up and dancing, obviously much more than normal. Tom said he will definitely recommend your band.

Thank you all for such a wonderful event! You did a marvelous job. Everyone was talking about how great the band was, and they still are! Everyone was dancing. The dance floor was crowded the whole night! We couldn't have asked for more. I have already given your name to other people for possible future events. I hope something comes of it!

- Magill/Sack Wedding

Thank you for your email, but more importantly, THANK YOU for a wonderful evening. From "Hips Don't Lie" to "I Will Survive" (which sadly I was not invited to sing :-) your band really got our group dancing and it was such a memorable evening. Your band is so professional and you were all a pleasure to work with. We will certainly consider Phoenix again in the future!

Thanks so much for checking in. Phoenix did great. I love working with them and Richard Kessler in particular. The band is truly phenomenal.

- A Simple Wish

We appreciate your good wishes! Hopefully you could tell by all the folks dancing their pants off, but we, too, want to say how fantastic it was having Phoenix perform at our wedding. You all helped make the celebration a truly celebratory and downright fun time. I can't tell you how many people came up to us to say things like 'this band is awesome' and even, 'this is the best wedding band ever.' And we could only agree!! You are an amazingly talented group. Please extend our appreciation to the whole band. If you ever need a testimonial for your website or a reference for a future client, we would be more than happy to do so.

- Christenson/Norton Wedding

You guys were absolutely amazing!! A great band can make or break a party and I just can't begin to tell you how amazing the music was... all night!! Thank you also for sharing the stage with Stacey. It was magical!!! Honestly, so many people have called and asked for your information!! That's when you really know your guests loved your music! It was so gracious of you all to learn a few songs for us and we I just can't find the words to express how happy we are with everything!!

- Black/Maier Wedding

Lisa and I would like to extend our deepest thanks for making our wedding reception a truly enjoyable experience for us and our guests. I can’t tell you how many people have said it was the most fun wedding they’ve attended and Phoenix was a big part of that. The variety of songs played was perfect for our families.  The jazz standards were excellent and had everyone up and dancing.  It was incredible to feel the dance floor explode during the rendition of the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feelin”. I gave so many high-fives to people coming onto the dance floor it was unreal. I didn’t think the dance floor could fill up so fast.  The band’s talent and energy made our reception a great party!  It was exactly what we hoped it would be.

- Etheridge Wedding

Bonjour Richard! We are checking email in France and just wanted to say thank you for making our wedding so amazing. We had the time of our lives and the band was incredible. Before we left for our honeymoon we received tons of comments on how great the band was.

Thank you again. It has been a pleasure working with you and the band!!

- Wasserkrug/Bowe Wedding

It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your band. I am looking forward to the next new bride that walks through my door and asks for a recommendation - -you guys are TOP of the list. Pleaseextend my thanks to your guys... We can't wait to work together again!

- S. Morris – Easton Events, LLC

Phoenix was exceptional.  I really mean that!  Listening to them play and watching the guests dance and enjoy throughout the evening was a joy.  They were a true reminder that a DJ is not a replacement for a Band!  Richard was very flexible with our changes.  The evening went on without a hitch!

Thanks!

- T. B. Schwartz – Creative Parties

Getting rave reviews about the band!! Great job last night - folks were absolutely impressed and still talking about it!

- K.Taylor - JDA Software Group Holiday Party

Richard, I should be thanking you and the band - you all were fantastic!  I have received all positive comments about your performance.  I'm even getting requests to have you back next year.  You have done something that no one else has been able to do - keep the dance floor busy for the entire night! 

Thanks again for a wonderful evening.

- S.Roxberry – ExxonMobile Global Services Holiday Party

Dear Phoenix,

I cannot possibly express how happy I was with your performance at my wedding! 

Dozens of people told me you were the best wedding band they had ever experienced!!  You all were incredible!!  You made us so happy from the first dance with my crazy lyrics to your singers getting the crowd out on the dance floor and involved, to all the great funk and disco and standards you played - you guys were tight!  My musician friends were impressed.  It was the best night of my life and you all were responsible, largely, for that.

Thank you so much!

Ryan and I both agreed Phoenix ROCKED our wedding reception! You guys were, hands down, absolutely fantastic and we could not have been more pleased with your performance, energy, willingness to work the crowd, and the song choices! We were simply blown away! Trust me, your name and reputation will get around :)

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
