Phil is everything you need in a vendor - from start to finish!
I cannot rave enough about our experience with Phil. From our initial chat, I knew he was the right choice for our wedding DJ. His energy and his expertise came off within minutes of our call.Sent on 04/13/2021
We appreciated that it was important for him to meet us in person prior. He met us and our families for coffee as we covered every small detail to make our day perfect! We kept in touch the week leading us as well, making sure every song, microphones, intro etc were ready to roll.
Then - the night of! It was perfect. We still, weeks later, have guests commenting on what a fabulous DJ we had. I cannot recommend Phil enough - the perfect mix of fun & professional!

We cannot thank them enough!
We cannot recommend Fantastic Five Entertainment enough. Due to surprise military orders, we had to move our wedding date up by 6 months. Phil was recommended to us by our venue (The Stillwell House) and one of my coworkers, and now I know why. He was professional, understanding of our situation, and made our wedding day absolutely perfect. The price was right, too!
Phil is obviously an expert in his craft, and gave us recommendations for songs and timing. In one in person meeting, this man put together our entire wedding day itinerary. He even helped me pick out my song to walk down the aisle. Because my fiance and I had been together for almost 6 years, we didn't want out wedding to be too serious, so we had some quirky ideas that Phil 100% supported.
Our wedding day was the last Friday before Gov. Ducey closed down the state for Arizona. People were cancelling, my fiance got food poisoning, and it was raining. We were STRESSED, but Phil is an absolute saint. He checked on me, prepared speakers indoors and outdoors, and gave gentle reminders for time. The only hitch was that our officiants mic was not working just before the ceremony, but it was remedied when the ceremony began. Beyond that, it was the most magical night.
Phil put together an incredible playlist, using some of our favorite songs and throwing in others that worked perfectly. We wrote funny introductions for our wedding party, and Phil executed them perfectly. During dinner, we did a "picture dash", where Phil played a silly song and my new husband and I ran around getting as many pictures with guests as possible. Our guests LOVED the music and we danced all night. Our final song was special, because we announced at the wedding that we are moving to Italy. Phil played That's Amore and, without prompting, our guests held hands and danced around us. Phil supported us the whole evening, and was such a fun person to work with. We cannot thank, or recommend, Fantastic Five Entertainment enough.Sent on 04/22/2020

Hire him...like right now!!
Working with Phil from Fantastic Five Entertainment was a stress free, fun experience! He made our wedding day a one to remember and was so detail oriented, never missing a beat (pun intended)! I was incredibly detailed about the songs I wanted played during the ceremony down to the minute/seconds and Phil executed it absolutely perfectly - it was a dream! Phil continually went above and beyond to make sure our day was absolutely perfect. I loved working with him because he was so on top of everything, reliable, always on time and responded very quickly and always willing to chat over the phone. On top of everything, we had to reschedule our wedding twice due to covid and he was incredibly accommodating going above and beyond to make our experience memorable despite multiple hiccups with covid! Phil made the process so seamless and was just a joy to work with. Phil’s playlists had us and our guests seriously dancing alllll night long. I 100% recommend his services. I will be hiring him for anniversary parties to come!Sent on 04/07/2021

Fantastic Five is professional, fun, and committed
Phil was so responsive and understanding throughout the whole process. He walks you through each step, and was one of the most invested vendors on our team. We knew we could depend on him to deliver a fun and smooth time for all! And plus, my father said he liked his voice! He's the best of the best DJ's out there! We received so many compliments from family and friends about our amazing DJ. Please hire him! :DSent on 03/19/2020

Absolutely Amazing Experience!
My husband and I owe a lot of credit to Phil who made sure we had no worries on our big day! He took every want we had down to the details! Everything was executed perfectly and our guests and even wedding party raved about the experience and how much fun and how easy it all felt! Phil was concerned about our vision and did all he could to make it fit! He even went as far as editing music choices to fit; this man took "Dear Mama" by 2Pac and edited it for my husbands mother-son dance, and it was a HIT! Thank you so much Fantastic Five, you made our wedding so enjoyable, so fun and so easy to live in the moment! Please consider using them for your big day!Sent on 03/04/2020

Top Notch DJ! Pick Phil for your day!
Phil was the best! He answered all my questions promptly and made the planning process from out of state super easy! It was so helpful that Phil was friends and had work with majority of my vendors many times before. Phil was flexible with some last minute changes and very detailed which made everything go smoothly! He played all of our favorite songs and the dance floor was full the whole night. Can't say enough positive things about Phil! :)Sent on 04/11/2020

Phil and his team worked endlessly to make our wedding a day to remember. He worked with us since day one to make sure that everything was exactly as we wanted. He went above and beyond on our wedding day to ensure that everything ran smoothly, and that we and our guests had a fantastic time. The music was amazing and we all danced the ENTIRE night.Sent on 11/19/2019

The most fun we've had dancing. Ever.
Music and dancing were top priorities for our wedding. Phil did an incredible job playing our favorite music throughout the reception and keeping everyone on the dance floor for our 4.5-hour dance party. From our initial meeting until after the last song at our wedding, Phil was very professional and considerate of our wishes. He made sure to familiarize himself with how we envisioned our celebration and offered thoughtful suggestions to make it even better. He carefully reviewed our timeline because Phil is not only a DJ, he also keeps the reception moving by directing guests where they need to go, announcing toasts and dances.
When it came time to party, Phil had everyone on the dance floor by reading the crowd and seamlessly mixing the greatest dance songs. We had an absolute blast and multiple guests raved about the music, saying it was the most fun they've had dancing. At the end of the night, Phil asked if we had a final song request. We had a hard time thinking of one because all of our favorite songs were already played!
Also, make sure to look at the different packages offered by Fantastic Five. Our package included set-up in three different locations, including sound for the ceremony, which was perfect for our venue with separate areas for ceremony/cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. The uplighting was also great for photos and made the dancing room really feel like a party. Overall, Phil and Fantastic Five are amazing! Phil is truly an expert DJ and takes his job seriously while prioritizing your fun and happiness.Sent on 12/03/2019

Perfect preparation and execution - book phil montes!
I cannot put into words how incredible Phil Montes is. He exceeded any expectations I had of what a DJ is or what a DJ does. He took such pride in our entire event - ceremony, reception and after party. I had complete confidence that what Phil said he would do, would be done and done right. He did not disappoint. Also, I want to point out that there was no hint of "cheesy MC", he was professional, caring and a complete chameleon, catering to our style and vision. Phil is the full package. No questions asked, he is worth every penny and more. BOOK HIM.Sent on 11/26/2019

Phil was the best of the best!
There's aren't enough words to express how happy we were that we chose Fantastic Five Entertainment for our wedding! Every time we met with Phil we got more and more excited and when it came to the day of our wedding he absolutely KILLED IT! We had a huge wedding with a wide age range of people and he was so good at reading the crowd and playing songs that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. Friends and family have still been complimenting our DJ and talking about how great he was and how much fun they had. I am so happy we found Fantastic Five and so lucky we got the chance to work with Phil. Any party or event I ever have I will be contacting him :)Sent on 11/24/2019

Phil was amazing!Sent on 10/03/2019
We had so much fun and so did our guests!
I can honestly say he had the dance floor going all night long!! He did such a great job with the music selection that it had all ages of the wedding dancing continuously! Our guests loved that they were able to get in some requests of their own and Phil found a way to play them through out the night! Our whole family loved his set up and lights, everyone enjoyed everything Fantastic Five had to offer. My fiancé even noted that Phil was so pumped up before the ceremony that it got him feeling so much more relaxed and that Phil’s energy was everything the groomsman needed as they waited to walk down the aisle! ♥️

Phil was nothing short of amazing. He is so much more than just a DJ. During our meetings prior to the wedding he was always very attentive and helped us create everything from our schedule to our music itinerary. Our wedding was purely wonderful. Phil kept everything on track and made sure the wedding ran smoothly. Each one of our guests shared how much they loved the music.

This DJ Doesn't Skip A Beat- 5 stars for Fantastic Five
Wow. What can we say?
There were literally fireworks at our wedding, literally (thanks to FF)! Fantastic Five Entertainment went above and beyond our expectations. And, Im not just saying that. Working with Phil was THE highlight of our wedding. He is responsive and listens. He is HIGHLY organized and doesn't skip a BEAT. My now husband always says the most important part of the wedding is the booze and DJ and I couldn't agree more. Phil's lighting setup, giant sparklers option, emcee style, positive and fun attitude created an atmosphere that our friends and family will remember forever. Phil, we can't thank you enough for all your hard work. You are worth every penny!

Phil was awesome and we 100% recommend him!
Weddings and planning for weddings come with hundreds of choices that need to be made, cake, flowers, venue, etc. After meeting with Phil, he was the easy choice for entertainment. We could not have been happier with our choice. Phil updated us and kept us organized throughout the entire process. He made everything easy and comfortable before the wedding and during. He even worked with my mom secretly to add sparklers to our event, it was awesome. During the wedding he told us exactly what was going on and where we needed to be. He was calm, efficient, fun, and professional. We really could not recommend him enough.Sent on 05/03/2019

The best night of my life!
Phil of Fantastic Five Entertainment is of EXCEPTIONAL quality. His attention to detail, his patience, and his generous character made my wedding immaculate. Phil kept all of our guests smiling and did everything exactly as planned- the guy was even kind enough to check in on my wife and I throughout the evening offering us drinks and other wonderful options during the reception. He even discreetly collaborated with my wife to surprise me with wedding games! I simply cannot recommend him enough, he is without any doubt the best DJ and event organizer in the state of Arizona and I strongly believe him to be of the best in the country. My wife and I did A LOT of research and Phil was recommended to us by multiple parties. Waste no time in looking elsewhere- Phil of Fantastic Five Entertainment is the DJ you’re looking for.Sent on 03/01/2019

Best wedding decision ever
Choosing Phil as our wedding DJ was without a doubt one of the best decisions we've ever made - from our very first meeting, he set himself apart with his genuine care and thoughtfulness, and that professionalism carried through to the finish - he was incredibly flexible with our vision (Persian/American/Irish/“Up”/Game of Thrones flair and all), wasn’t afraid to share his own experience to help us reimagine things, and showed up above and beyond - literally and figuratively - including to a late night pizza and wine discussion the week of our wedding to fine-tune our playlist!
And on the night of our wedding, he made sure our guests had a total BLAST - the dance floor was always full, the music selection was perfect, and every single guest kept telling us how much fun they were having. As bride and groom, we had the best night of our lives.
Phil was the best possible choice as our wedding DJ and we seriously could not have imagined anyone else doing the job!
Thank you, Phil!! We miss you already!Sent on 02/28/2019
