"Phil was absolutely amazing in every aspect! Entertainment is one of the key elements of a great celebration and Phil definitely delivered. From playing the piano at our ceremony and cocktail hour to being the DJ/MC for the reception, he exceeded our expectations and we couldn't have asked for anything or anyone better! On top of that Phil was extremely professional and helpful during the whole process. He made everything so easy for us and we definitely appreciate that! We would book Phil a million times over again! He helped make our day special not only with his talent but because he is a great person! Thank you Phil!! =)"
