Barry - The Phase band was absolutely the highlight of my wedding weekend!! Still, two weeks out, I am getting phone calls from people at my reception asking who my band was. Not a single person left the reception until the last song and the dance floor was still full!! They were so talented and entertaining! Ernest was great to work with and played every song I requested. I could not be more happy!! Thank you for the suggestion. I would recommend them for anyone!!!

We just got back from the honeymoon yesterday. The wedding was awesome. The Phase Band was really incredible. So many people came up to me and commented on how good the band was. The dance floor was packed the entire time and they just kept playing hit after hit after hit. They were incredible and totally easy to work with. Thanks so much for your help with this, it worked out really well.
Hi Ted, The Phase band was awesome! Everyone loved the music! They were extremely professional and wonderful to work with. When my dinner service ended a bit early, they were right there to accommodate me ½ hour earlier than anticipated. I really appreciated that effort as you can imagine. I was disappointed that the party broke up at about 10:15 and I didn't have the opportunity to hear more of them. The chair of our group has already asked me to keep the Phase Band in mind for next year. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who asks. Thank you for all of your hard work in dealing with my last minute panic. I look forward to working with you again soon. Best,
PHASE BAND IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I cannot stress that enough. They were incredibly professional and such a joy to work with. They were appreciative for a great environment and for good organization. I really enjoyed working with them every minute. The family of the bride could not have been happier, it was all together an enormous success!

What an outstanding performance and effort from you all! Thanks to your hard work and impressive talents we enjoyed one of the most well received Junior-Senior events ever. You met and exceeded the expectations of the assembled crowd and for that you have our heart felt thanks. We are all still talking about the evening of great tunes, outstanding vocals, wide repertoire, costume changes (who DOES that in a 3 hour performance?!), professional style and gracious flexibility. We hope your long drive home in the wee hours was safe - again, our thanks for all the ways you delivered above and beyond on our behalf for a truly memorable evening. We hope to have a place on your 'dance card' again very very soon!

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to send this note. I just wanted you to know that The Phase Band was absolutely OUTSTANDING at my daughter’s reception.
They kept the mood high and the dance floor full… and I’m not exaggerating on the dance floor ! I had to literally go onto the dance floor at 11:30pm and push folks off and send them to the front of the Carolina Inn for the send-off for the bride and groom amidst chants of “one more song…one more song…one more song”
They were awesome, everyone was up and dancing and I really enjoyed their range of songs. We are completely satisfied and would use them again.

Ted - Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the Phase Band; they were great. They ended with the WFU fight song followed by my one last-minute request, Sweet Home, Alabama. Also, we appreciated the difference between Phase and Simply Irresistible the next night. It was a super weekend and I appreciate your help greatly.

I wanted to get back to you thought and let you know that the band was fantastic! All I wanted to do was dance at my wedding and they went above and beyond. They were easy to work with and were such high energy. People kept telling me how great they were and the next day at brunch everyone remembered that they were called the Phase Band. They really made my wedding special.
Thanks for following up.
The Phase Band was absolutely the greatest! They created a party atmosphere that was electric... they were the talk of the wedding. They were able to provide music of such an incredible quality that it was enjoyed by all ages for the entire evening. They were so professional and their performance was just flat out fun!! The Phase Band was so gracious to my guests. It was truly a magic night and the Band made it happen. I could not have asked for a more perfect reception for my daughter`s wedding....thanks to the Phase Band. I could go on and on but I am sure that I have clearly communicated my feedback. I would recommend the Phase Band anytime! Thanks to EastCoast Entertainment also!
Dear Mr. Johnson,
I want to THANK YOU for one of the best nights of our life...we loved the music, the crowd danced all night and you were all amazing. I am very glad that we chose you and your wonderful coworkers. I would definitely recommend your band to any and everybody. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you....you turned the place out !!!!

Earnest, JR, and Kelly,
All I can say for starters is WOW! We have been to a lot of weddings over the years, but Phase Band was by far our favorite band yet, and what makes it even better it was at our own reception! As you know, weddings can be so overwhelming for the bride and groom, but we were able to really enjoy ourselves thanks to the band. The way the band was able to stir interest from the crowd during the introduction of the wedding party was insane! We knew right then it was going to be so much fun! I read the great reviews and listened to the awesome demos on the band's website and EastCoast Entertainment's site, however no review or demo held a candle to how good the band actually was! We had amazing feedback from our friends and family. As the bride, there are certain parts of the night that seem to be a blur because there is so much going on, however I will never forget looking out onto the dance floor and seeing the crowd dancing, singing, and having such a great time! It seriously gave me chills to see how much fun everyone was having!!!
Earnest, thank you so much to you and your band for everything! You were so professional in every way - performance, appearance, interaction, etc. You guys keep it up, because I can promise you bring much to joy to the lives of many with your talent and spirit.
Kelly and JR, thank you soooooo much for making this happen and making it so easy at that! If I ever had the smallest concern, it was addressed promptly, and for my million plus one questions, you made it a point to answer all of them. Your professionalism was amazing, too!
All in all, I cannot thank you enough for everything you have all done. You all made our reception so much fun, and we will be forever grateful! I can guarantee anyone needing a reference for related events in the future will get a strong and glowing one from us. You guys (and gal :) ) ROCK!!!
