"The kitchen couldn't even serve the dessert course because every single guest was up dancing!"
~ Alina & Joe, Newlyweds
The Phonix has performed over 500 shows since 2009 and is a band you can count on for an engaging party that keeps all your guests from every generation entertained and on the dance floor all night! They were a staple in the diets of thousands of funk-loving Vancouverites as they diligently fulfilled their role as house band at the Arts Club's Backstage Lounge from 2011 to 2019. If it’s funky and will make you dance, the Phonix will play it! All 9 of them share a love for the likes of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Earth Wind and Fire.
8 years experience as a house band has gifted the Phonix with flashy choreography, captivating stage presence and an ability to sustain a high energy, exciting and engaging performance. Their infectious energy has affected BC audiences as far as Kelowna, Penticton and Victoria. They have headlined at the Vancouver Street Dance Festival as well as the Penticton Peach Festival, where they have also had the privilege of opening for iconic Canadian band, Trooper. Their vast list of performances includes venues such as the Fairmont, Sutton Place and Westin Bayshore hotels, the Red Robinson and McPherson theatres and just about every casino in Vancouver.
They can provide music for ceremonies, receptions, during breaks and sample performances with sound and lighting being covered. This group has members that play the piano, saxophone, guitar, drums, trumpet, bass and piano. Items such as a disco ball and microphones are also available. Couples can also take advantage of the ability to request songs.
In addition to the nine member group, future newlyweds can also choose to have different groupings as well such as a ceremony musician (piano or guitar), instrumental ensemble (for dinner and cocktails) or a Jazz quartet with vocals.
Instrumental duo, instrumental trio, soloist/vocalist, instrumental solo, string quartet

Meet the Team
Hi, I'm Reuben, and I can't wait to help you plan the best party of your life!
I have been performing with and leading the Phonix since 2009 and have performed over 500 shows with the band. There's nothing I like more than being on stage and sharing my band's music and fun with everyone on the dance floor.
Since finishing my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies degree from Capilano University, I have been working as a trumpet player, pianist, vocalist, songwriter and bandleader.
My unique history of blending administrative roles with formal music study and extensive performance experience make me a valuable asset to your wedding or event. I am very easy to work with thanks to my systematic approach to getting things done and my personable, soft-spoken and small-town (originally from Naramata, BC) demeanour.
When I'm not busy with events and music projects, I enjoy growing vegetables, making great meals for friends and dreaming up creative ways to make the world a more efficient and caring place.
The most awesome guy you can hang out with, who just so happen to manage the partiest band in town. Eric studied jazz saxophone under renowned artists Campbell Ryga and Mike Allen. He attained a Bachelor of Jazz Studies from Capilano University, a Bachelor of Music Education and a Master of Music Education in Curriculum Studies from UBC. From 2009-2018, Eric was the Music Director of John Oliver Secondary where he runs a music program of 300+ students. In 2009, he received the Don Wright Scholarship in Instrumental Education in recognition for his achievement in instrumental education. In addition, Eric was nominated for the MusiCounts Teacher of the Year Award in 2015.
With the PHONIX band, Eric is the guy you call if you want to bring down the house!
