Reuben came along to do the sound for our wedding and he was so great. We were planning our wedding from the UK and weren’t able to meet anyone in advance, but Reuben really put us at ease with his fantastic communication, was really accommodating with all our requests, and is ...

This band has to be the best possible band you can have at a wedding if you're going for a fun time and you want everyone dancing. Funk, soul, and they are a blast. Reuben is a great coordinator as well, went above and beyond to do what we wanted. He came to the venue ahead of ... View more time to check the space and sound, and had suggestions that were helpful. Honestly can't recommend this band enough.

The best! I think out of all other spending in our wedding, it's the best choice we have made and the band worths every penny! They are super professional and helped us to adjust our music preference. Highly recommended!

The band was awesome! They played quiet music when we were running late with our schedule and then rock it when they got on the stage. They learned songs that I really wanted to play that were not not their list... With only one weeks notice and sounded amazing! It made our wedding even more special! Thank you so much Phonix!

The Phonix were by far the best decision we made for our wedding. They were beyond amazing and such a breeze to work with. The music is great, the band is great, and Reuben is amazingly helpful. They went above and beyond all of our expectations for the day and I would highly recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. They will 100% make your special day perfection.
