"Penticton Peach Festival"

"Phonix definitely delivered for us this year at Peachfest 2015 with their special brand of energy and excitement. On stage, every single member is equally strong in their musicality and their delivery. For an audience to enjoy this kind of chemistry from a band is a real, rare treat. A crowd favourite for sure and we look forward to welcoming them back again for Peachfest 2016. Phonix is definitely one of the best groups I’ve ever seen and… I’ve seen a lot of good bands." - -Bill Kolter, Peachfest Entertainment Director

"Believe everything you read..."

“In an age where it is easy to create websites and social media pages that promise big things, it is very rare to find a group of performers that surpass the hype. The Phonix did it....believe everything you read!” - -Gore Mutual

"Extremely talented and great to work with"

“We used Phonix for a staff event and they were outstanding. Not only are they extremely talented, but they're also great to work with. Thanks to Phonix our event was a huge success.” - Coast Capital Savings and Credit Union

"Amazing band"

Amazing band--they had everyone up and dancing the dance floor. They are really accommodating and a pleasure to deal with pre and post event! - Ashley McIntyre, Fairmont Chateau Whistler

"Got everyone out of their seats"

The Phonix did an amazing performance for our company's Christmas party and they got everyone out of their seats! I would recommend The Phonix to anyone looking to book a fun band for their next event! Thanks again! - Hayley Thomas, RESAAS


Still working on that hot first release.



The Phonix is a 9-piece Canadian funk, soul and R&B party band from Vancouver BC. Since forming in June 2009, the Phonix has performed at nearly 400 weddings, events and festivals. They are a staple in the diets of thousands of funk-loving Vancouverites as they diligently fulfill their role as house band at the Arts Club's Backstage Lounge. If it’s funky and will make you dance, the Phonix want to play it! All 9 of them share a love for the likes of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Earth Wind and Fire.

Six 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.

The band plans to release its first EP of original music in early 2016. It will feature creative compositions that embody the Phonix' defining elements of class, soul, fun, and respect. You will be able to purchase and listen on the band’s website.
