Phil Thompson Client Reviews:
"We were beyond fortunate to have booked Phil Thompson as our featured performer in the hospitality pavilion for the 2010 US Open Tennis Tournament. Throughout the tournament Phil showcased a series of 8 performances that exceeded our expectations and were received with rave reviews from our sponsors and hospitality clients. Phil is a consummate professional, a passionate and polished performer, with a charismatic personality – we're looking forward to working with Phil for years to come and recommend him highly to others who are considering working with him."
Director of Hospitality
US Open Tennis Tournament
"Phil Thompson Productions helped save time and resources by producing all aspects of entertainment for our annual holiday party: coordinating our live entertainment, lighting, and DJ / video services. Throughout the planning process Phil was great to work with and extremely detail-oriented, going the extra mile to meet with us and understand our needs. Phil handled planning our large corporate event with ease – I can't recommend him, his "Phil Thompson and Friends" show, or his production abilities highly enough."
Executive Assistant to Mr. Stanley Hubbard
"Phil is an all around great guy, an awesome performer, and a pleasure to work with. I've booked Phil on a number of occasions for our non-profit galas, both solo piano and with his "Phil Thompson and Friends" format, and he does an incredible job every time. Phil understands what it takes to add ambiance and class to an event and does it flawlessly every time!"
Jennifer Van Wyk
Acting Executive Director
Open Arms Minnesota
"Hiring "Phil Thompson and Friends" to perform for our wedding, cocktail hour, and throughout dinner was the best decision we made regarding our special day. The music at the ceremony was beautiful – I can't tell you how many of my guests thought it was the best music they've ever heard at a wedding; and the songs throughout dinner and cocktail hour couldn't have been more perfect. Phil made planning the music fun and easy and really left a very special memory for us. I can't recommend him enough, I promise you'll be glad you went with him."
