A Wedding Band Like No Other!!
Worth every last penny
Thanks a lot xprime! You guys are the best ♥️
XPRIME for the win!
The band put on an incredible performance. Our guests couldn't say enough about just how amazing the band was! They catered to the entire crowd by playing a variety of 60s, 70s, 80, 90s and 2000 hits. They really know how to crush the Beatles and Killers!
They were great at every step in process, from communicating pre-event, day of setup, and helping to play music in between sets and speeches.
Phenomenal Performers. You would be lucky to have them play for your event. They brought the energy that really made our wedding night a night to remember.
Would recommend to anyone looking for a band that knows how to work the crowd and has amazing talent.
MADE the Party!
Best party ever

Phil Taylor is the band leader, drummer and one of the 3 lead vocalists in XPRIME. He's been playing drums for over 16 years and has been singing just as long. Phil is known to give his everything in every performance and can rip through powerful vocal songs like "Shout!" and "Back in Black". His incredible pocket and drumming talents has gained him endorsments from *Mapex Drums and *Murat Diril Cymbals - giving him some of the best sounding tools in the trade! Phil takes his role as band leader seriously; always keeping the band on time and ensuring the band satisfies every client's needs while making the band a pleasure to work with!
Steph is an absolute on-stage animal. With years of experience as a lead guitarist and singer with touring band James Blonde - he brings the same charisma and energy to every wedding and event played! Some guitar solos end up on the bar, crowd surfing or running around the room. With Steph on stage, there is never a dull moment - he brings that exciting live energy that only seasoned touring bands can bring to any performance.
Neil can sing and play anything! Having done his training through the Ontario Conservatory of Music and playing 280+ shows per year with XPRIME, JAMES BLONDE and as a solo acousitc act - Neil Carson is one seasoned musician. Like the other 2 members, Neil takes that same on-stage professionalism and energy honed-in from years of touring to every wedding and event! His pitch-perfect vocals and charming on-stage personality will leave wanting more of XPRIME's renditions for all your favourite songs!
