Where do I begin with Phase 5 Band?! They are WONDERFUL. Not only are they great performers, but they are so easy to work with as well! Josh is very organized and communicative. They were able to do a 'private last dance' song for my husband and I, which was so sweet and special. They had EVERYONE out on the dance floor - it was never empty! All of our guests are still talking about how awesome the band was! Everyone had such a fun time singing along and dancing (they play a great selection of songs - none of the cheesy ones!). Would 1000% recommend choosing Phase 5 - you won't regret it!Sent on 10/11/2019

Best part of the entire wedding!
After searching for the best bands in the Tampa area, we came across Phase 5 and immediately fell in love with their style and sound. Upon reaching out, we heard back from Josh within hours. He was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and made sure to answer all of my crazy questions. They arrived early to set up, played through the entire night without any breaks, and even surprised us with performing the groom and mother first dance song live rather than playing the recording as we thought it would be a DJ song since it wasn't on their playlist. His team is beyond unbelievable! The guests and staff of the hotel not at the wedding kept asking guests if this was a recording or an actual live band as each song sounded perfect. When you thought they nailed one song, they'd start the next and perform it even better than the one before. Throughout the night and the next day, all anyone could talk about was how amazing the band was. If you are thinking of adding a band to your wedding, Josh and Phase 5 are well worth it and will make your wedding unforgettable. Thank you Josh for a night we will never forget!Sent on 06/19/2019
Phase5's reply:We absolutely loved playing for you guys. Such a fun group. Thanks for your kind words and for giving us the opportunity to play for you!

My husband and I are both huge music fans so knew we wanted a talented band at our wedding. Phase 5 was the very first vendor that we hired over a year in advance of our wedding. After watching some of their YouTube, I basically wanted to start dancing in my living room. They did not disappoint! Throughout the process they were quick to respond and professional and at the wedding they were amazing! So many of my guests commented on how great the music was! They knew just how to read the crowd to put on the exact performance that we wanted! Josh and the whole band were incredible. Thank you thank you!!Sent on 06/01/2019
Phase5's reply:Camille, It was an honor to be a part of your wedding. It was such a fantastic night. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your night.
I don't need to tell you that Phase5 is the most engaging and talented event band in Florida, everyone knows that. What you should know is that Josh and his team are some of the best people you will ever work with. I'm always excited to find out we get to work with Phase5 - they bring so much energy to every wedding, while NEVER being cheesy!
I had the pleasure of working with Josh and his band this weekend. Not only was he kind, accommodating and a clear communicator but he and his crew threw a GREAT PARTY too!! They read the crowd well and played great music all evening. I would not hesitate to book phase5 for a wedding, party or event.
You know our biggest problem with inspire DJ/phase5/Busted Blues?? When we deliver our wedding cakes we never get to hear them play!!!!!! Seriously, an incredibly talented and humble band. Always a pleasure to work with and talk to, and even more of a pleasure to hear play when we get the chance! ;] I very highly recommend booking them right away!
