Phil Thompson Client Reviews:

“I just wanted to email you to tell you again how much we enjoyed having you DJ/play live music for our wedding. It was so great, better than we could've imagined. You were so organized, yet flexible. We didn't have to worry about a thing. The music you played was fantastic, and you kept people going on the dance floor. Thanks again!”

“Thank YOU for helping make our big day so amazing!! The music was phenomenal, just as expected. We're really pleased you were able to keep so many people on the dance floor ALL night and I know it was a mix of the awesome music choices. It was great working with you. I'll definitely keep you in mind when I'm planning events for clients... you never know when we'll need a great DJ or pianist :)”

“I cannot thank you all enough for making the special trip to KC for Jared and I's special day! It honestly would not have been the same without you guys. It was everything I very dreamt of and you helped that dream come true. I honestly thought the music took the night above and beyond. At most weddings it is the same old same old and you all brought a fun new flair to our night, it was just great. I loved how you incorporated live into the ceremony/reception and then played the best "party" music to keep everyone on the dance floor throughout the night. It was awesome. Thank you again for everything Phil!! Such great memories!”

"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!! =)"

Our company has hired dozens of performers over the years for our annual conference and Phil was undoubtedly one of the best we've ever had. He's a fantastic vocalist, piano player, entertainer and has some great musicians that he plays with - he's the total package and went the extra mile to create the perfect set of music to fit our event.

Phil is such an incredible vocalist and piano player, every song he did sounded like it could have been a recording! We loved his cellist & guitar player too and were happy he recommended performing with his trio – especially for our first dance song (Thinking Out Loud) - sooooo amazing!!! Phil is hands down the BEST and our special day would not have been the same without him – THANK YOU!!!

We hired Phil to produce all of the entertainment for our company's annual gala and he did an exceptional job: he performed for our cocktail hour and dinner along with his trio and he's such an incredibly talented piano player and vocalist - we received so many positive comments from our guests how great he was and that he performed the perfect mix of music for our audience. We also had Phil help DJ & Emcee our after party and he rocked that too! He's the complete package - talented, professional, and beyond easy to work with, we were lucky to have found him!
