Phil is professional, experienced, and knows how to start a party!
My husband is from New Jersey and has attended countless weddings, sweet sixteens, bar mitzvahs, and has a number of friends that are DJs. Its basically a right of passage for an Italian Catholic from New Jersey to think he is an expert on what to expect from a DJ. He and I both agreed that Phil exceeded all expectations, from the very organized and meticulous way he helped us plan and execute our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music. To the way he structured meetings, his organization skills, attention to detail, and how much he helped settle my husbands nerves the day of our wedding. Phil knows how to read a room and create a fun and lively vibe. Our reception was so much fun and attribute that to Phil. Phil is a class act with a great deal of experience and it really showed on his execution the day of our wedding. One of our wedding guests and close friends used to be a professional DJ in the Tucson area and was also really blown away with Phil and said he now has someone to refer people to.
We would recommend Phil and Fantastic Five Entertainment without hesitation to anyone looking for a premium DJ at reasonable price point who brings a aura of confidence, industry knowledge, ease of working with, and who really runs a tight ship the day of the event.

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.

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!

Fantastic five is fantastic
We rarely, if ever, take the time to leave reviews for really any service. However, in this case we were inspired by an exceptional experience to help get the word out to anyone looking for the perfect wedding DJ. Fantastic Five Entertainment and our DJ Phil Montes were an absolute life-saver, not only on the day of our wedding with setting the exact atmosphere we were looking for, but also with the excellent customer service we received in the days leading up to the wedding. Phil is a true professional in the sense of the word. He instantly spotted the stress the wedding planning was causing my wife and went above and beyond to help calm her (which by the way made my life a whole lot easier). After every meeting with Phil, we left knowing we were taken care of and the wedding jitters would fade away. In our opinion, the music and setting the right atmosphere is one of the most important parts of wedding to get right and keep everyone in the proper mood for each moment during the wedding. Our biggest fear was that our guests would get bored, and no one would be dancing. Phil expertly put together a playlist based off our eclectic music preferences and song choices that blended together perfectly to create the perfect reception that kept the celebration going much later than we anticipated. Our vocabulary is too limited to fully describe what an he amazing job he did for us. All we can say is HIRE HIM. He provides far more value than what you pay for and will make your wedding just as magical as he made ours.

Absolutely the best!
If I could give Phil 100 stars he would deserve every one of them. He made our wedding perfect.

Phil is the best- you need him for your wedding!
Phil was wonderful to work with! He was very professional, organized, and helpful in giving us advice and tips on what he has seen at other weddings as far as flow, timing, songs to choose from, etc. He was an excellent MC and kept the dancing going for the whole reception! I would definitely recommend him for any wedding.

Fantastic Five is beyond fantastic
Phil from Fantastic Five was incredible, he was very attentive and his attention to detail was amazing. Leading up to the night he kept in touch with us and helped us feel comfortable with the process. The day of the wedding he made sure we were taken care of and made sure we were up to date with the itinerary. Phil truly helped make our day wonderful. It wouldn’t have been the same without him.

Perfect Wedding Experience
Phil was absolutely amazing from day one. He was professional, kind, and knowledgeable about all aspects of weddings.
Every meeting with Phil was well spent. Our questions were answered, ideas were given, and great conversations arised. He also made sure the meeting place was convienent for all of us, so no one had to drive half way across town to meet.
When it came to the wedding, Phil dressed professionally and showed up early to get everything set up. The music was perfectly timed for the ceremony and our guests continue to tell us how there was never a hiccup or pause in the music.
We had a different and fun reception entrance. Our dreams and ideas were met above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. And I’d highly recommend the dry ice (“dancing on a cloud”). The effects were amazing and it didn’t leave anyone coughing or struggling. The fog stayed on the floor as we entered the room and as we danced.
The music was perfect. He played everything we asked for and more. He kept our friends and family dancing the night away. And he continued to check up on my husband and I, to make sure we were okay and everything was going well.
In addition to being a great DJ, Phil is also fantastic at planning a wedding. He helped us through making a timeline, to making vendor suggestions, and to making sure everyone was at the right place at once.
I’d suggest Fantastic Five to anyone who’s looking for a easy sailing wedding with some kick butt music!

Phil was the BEST!
I cannot thank Phil enough for helping make our wedding the best night of our lives! He was not only a DJ but part time wedding organizer, helping from the very beginning of the process, taking time to meet with my husband and I, and helping us find our wedding vision!!! So professional and 1st class the whole time. The dance floor was going ALL night and I cannot stress enough how good of a time my guests had. From the ceremony, cocktail hour and of course reception, Phil nailed every detail and really brought our dream to life. Best DJ you will find!! Thank you Phil!!

Armando and Janeth’s Wedding
Wow I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ, Phil made sure everything went as planned not only was he a dj but a wedding director. He made sure everything went smoothly and that we were well taken care of. He is very easy going and very professional. Everyone who attended was very impressed on how organized the wedding was even the photographer and videographer told me that this was the smoothest/organized wedding they had attended and I couldn’t have accomplished that without Phil. From the ceremony to cocktail hour to dancing and setting up the lighting, he killed it. It’s called called fantastic five entertainment because the service is seriously 5 star rating.

Fantastic Five Entertainment was phenomenal. Phil is an incredibly talented DJ and did a superb job mixing and expanding the playlist recommendation that my wife and I sent him. He also seemed to genuinely be having a wonderful time at the wedding, which really helped add to the positive, exciting ambiance.
Alana Stark · Married on 10/20/2018
Phil was the best DJ we could have ever hoped for! He was attentive to our wants and questions, and was full of ideas and had a helpful insite on things we were not too familiar about. He made sure that what we wanted came first and was executed at the highest level along with maintaining a level or professionalism but also being very personable and easy to communicate with. He got the crowd interested and paying attention when needed, and also got people on the dance floor and kept the party going. We wouldn’t have traded him for anybody!

Five Stars for Fantastic Five!
Phil Montes was the first and only DJ we met with while choosing our entertainment vendor. There was no doubt - he was the perfect fit for our DJ for our wedding day. Very affordable as well with so many offerings. From the first meeting until the very last minute of the evening, he provided exceptional service. He was incredibly professional, accommodating, fun, energetic, personable and a great MC! Only positive things to say about our experience! Phil worked with my younger brother who played the guitar as I walked down the aisle. He also provided my Dad with great care as he prepped him to sing during our ceremony. Phil even went the extra mile to work with our bridal party on entrance songs/dance, proper name announcements and their toasts to help add some fun to our big day. Phil’s ideas and personal flare brought our evening to life, making each moment truly special and memorable. The evening flowed so smoothly, the lighting was just perfect and the music selection kept the dance floor busy all night, which was our goal. Most appreciated memory was our first dance where Phil took 3 songs and compiled them into the perfect combination. We loved it! Guests continue to compliment us on our DJ! Even telling us they have never danced so much at a wedding before! So amazing! So fun! Highly recommend Phil to all!
Bianca Fenceroy · Married on 10/05/2018
Phil, from Fantastic Five Ent. went above and beyond to make our wedding planning, and wedding day experience seem seamless to us. We’re positive so much thought and effort went into every detail of our day on Phil’s part because we felt no stress at all, and the music was on point! All of our guests, especially US had the best time dancing the night away. We couldn’t have chosen a better DJ.
Allie · Married on 09/15/2018
Phil was everything we could ask for in a wedding DJ. He had lists of popular songs to help us choose from, and kept everything moving smoothly throughout the whole process.
Lindsey · Married on 06/09/2018
Phil and fantastic 5 was absolutely key in our wedding day and wedding planning going smoothly. We were contacted constantly throughout the process and Phil actually was the one keeping me organized during the process. Our wedding day went off without absolutely any issues and Phil 100% was responsibke for keeping so many moving parts going that day. The music selection was absolutely amazing, and I think our group would have continued dancing until 5am they were enjoying themselves so much. We owe so much to Phil for making our day amazing.
Manuel · Married on 05/26/2018
Phil is extremely professional and very well organized. There was no stress involved when working with Phil, we really enjoyed working with him and his team.
Jodi · Married on 05/19/2018
Phil was wonderful and very professional during all of our consultations prior to the wedding and on the day of. During our big day he was on time and assisted in helping everything work together seamlessly. We highly recommend them!
Sarah · Married on 05/04/2018
Phil was bar none the best DJ and perfect for our wedding. HE coordinated so well with the wedding planner and was so helpful in making our day go so smoothly. I planned my whole wedding from another city in Arizona and Phils responsiveness in a timely manner and flexibility with my schedule made things so easy and made me comfortable knowing things were in his hands. From politely hollering at the best man to wrap up his much too long speech to grabbing myself and my groom drinks when we sat down for speeches without any Phil was constantly on point all day the day of our wedding. He even coordinated with our out of town friend who played live music for us at cocktail hour. Phil you are Fantastic! Thank you for everything!
Ashlen · Married on 04/28/2018
It was such a pleasure to work with Phil, from our first meeting he was professional, organized and possessed a wealth of knowledge in his profession! He made sure that everything was exactly the way we wanted and was a vital piece on our special day of keeping things to schedule, entertaining our guests and working with our other vendors (wedding cordjnator, photograhpeher, etc). During the evening the music was on point and appropriate for all of our guests. The lighting truly transformed our reception to the next level. We would absolutely recommend and use again for future events. We cannot say enough good things about Phil and Five Star Entertainment!
Daniel · Married on 04/21/2018
Phil was simply put, FANTASTIC, as in his company name. We made no mistakes in choosing him as our DJ for our wedding reception. Not only did he play the music and keep the party rolling, he organized each event and coordinated with us to make sure we wanted things to occur as they unfolded. The man even offered us drinks as we were partaking in photos and visiting with our guests! He helped me plan and play a music video I had made for my wife, let me sing another song to her, making sure she was ready and available for each surprise! I had one of my groomsman tell me the valet we hired tell him that he had done over 50 events at the Stillwell House in Tucson and this was by far the best. All in part to our DJ, Phil Montes!
Those in attendance know who to look for in a DJ when they are in need of one. For the rest who need suggestions, this is your guy!
Brandi · Married on 04/07/2018
Phil is absolutely AMAZING! We had such an awesome time at our wedding. When we would envision our wedding reception, we wanted our guests to have the time of their lives. Phil did just that. What made us most happy was that our guests were always on the dance floor dancing along with us. From the pre-planning process, Phil was always there to meet with us and ensure that all details were in order. I felt so at ease in knowing that our wedding would run smoothly because Phil was on top of everything. We love Fantastic Five Entertainment and could not imagine our day without it.
Ina · Married on 03/25/2018
What can I say, I was very, very impressed with Phil and Fantastic Five Entertainment! I highly recommend them! Phil really did a nice job with the lighting and the music was awesome, it was exactly how I envisioned my wedding to be! I can still hear all the awesome songs he played. He really listened to me and what I wanted played at my wedding and he put it all together in the most creative way. His is very professional and reasonable.
Michelle · Married on 03/24/2018
My husband and I are very pleased with the exceptional service we received from Fantastic Five Entertainment. Since our first meeting with Phil, we were impressed with his professionalism and knowledge about deejaying weddings. We not only discussed music, but other options for our wedding such as uplighting and details about the flow of the ceremony and reception. Our interaction with Phil was also a fun and relaxing time for us where we laughed and overall had a great time during the planning process. Phil presents information in a manner where you feel assured and confident that everything will run smoothly for the big day. As we got closer, he maintained constant communication throughout. The day of our wedding ran smoothly. He not only served as a Dj but as an excellent MC so our guests were aware what was happening at all times. The music was exceptional and he kept everyone on the dance floor. Our feedback from our guests was the music was great and some even said it was the best wedding they had ever attended!
