Tampa Bay Wedding Entertainment Spotlight: Phase5 Band

Hosting a memorable Tampa Bay wedding is all about experience and nothing compares to having live entertainment at your wedding reception. For those couples who place an emphasis on live music, they’ll love the professionalism, experience and energy that Phase5 Band provides. This five to nine piece band specializes exclusively in weddings and special events, performing at 80+ weddings per year.

Phase5 Band includes two lead singers, a male and female, giving couples an even wider range of songs to choose from. They can learn any song for your special dances to make the your wedding day personalized and memorable.

“We loved having Phase5 Band at our wedding! The lead singer Josh Walther was amazing to work with. We had very unique requests, and they were able to learn the songs for us. Josh and the band knocked it out of the park during our first dance; they really blew us away. It was such a special moment; one of my all-time favorites from our wedding that I will cherish forever. Everyone loved their energy and vibe; our guests were on the dance floor the whole night. I am so grateful to have had Phase5 at our reception; they were absolutely fantastic!” -Lauren and Joe | Contemporary Blush Pink and Burgundy St. Pete Beach Wedding | Don CeSar

The band offers music options for the entire day from ceremony to cocktail to reception and can provide a DJ to play during breaks to offer the best of both worlds.

In addition to playing locally at venues around Tampa Bay, Phase5 Band has performed at events such as Ringling By The Bay, The Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Food & Wine Festival and they have even performed with the famed Beatles singer Sir Paul McCartney.

What inspired you to start your business?
Seeing awful bands at weddings and hearing horror stories from couples and wedding planners. We wanted to provide a service where the client and other vendors could feel confident in knowing that we were going to do a great job and be easy to work with.

Where do you draw your inspiration?
Music and shows.

What makes your business stand out from other wedding professionals?
We play with the same musicians and singers at every event. This allows us to be well rehearsed and polished. Playing together at least threee times a week allows us to have great chemistry and energy onstage.

What is one of your favorite things about being a wedding professional?
Being a part of the team of vendors each week.

In your opinion, what is a MUST HAVE at every wedding?
Just one? A live band!

What are you most excited about in the upcoming year?

THE PHASE5 BAND REVIEWS FROM MARRY ME TAMPA BAY COUPLES:

We were looking for a band who would keep high energy and our party going all night. We loved having Phase5 Band at our wedding! The lead singer Josh Walther was amazing to work with; he was very responsive and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. We used Phase5 throughout ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We had very unique requests, and they were able to learn the songs for us. Josh and the band knocked it out of the park during our first dance; they really blew us away. It was such a special moment; one of my all-time favorites from our wedding that I will cherish forever. Everyone loved their energy and vibe; our guests were on the dance floor the whole night. I am so grateful to have had Phase5 at our reception; they were absolutely fantastic!” Lauren and Joe | Contemporary Blush Pink and Burgundy St. Pete Beach Wedding | Don CeSar

“Choosing a live band over a DJ was probably the easiest decision of the whole wedding! We chose Josh Walther & the Phase5 Band because we liked that they weren’t just a wedding band, they’re a local Tampa band! We loved going to see them play at other venues before our own wedding and knew that they were true professionals. They kept everyone dancing all night and made our wedding such a fun atmosphere.” -Jessica and Evan | Green and White South Tampa Wedding
