TESTIMONIALS

Molina Wedding, Madera, CA May 2, 2009

The band Phat Chants produced an atmosphere at our wedding which exceeded the expectations of all of those in attendance and made our celebration a truly unforgettable experience. Jim Davis, the band leader, is a very experienced professional who was courteous, punctual and self-sufficient. Phat Chants sounded great and the variety of music that they are able to play is sure to appeal to just about any audience or event. I would recommend them to anybody who is looking for performers that will ensure your guests have an amazing experience.

Searching for a live band can be a daunting task. After talking to numerous people, it was refreshing to finally come across a group like Phat Chants. Jim was very polite on the phone. He promptly returned my calls, answered all of my questions and provided us with the additional information that we needed in order to ensure a successful performance. They set up quickly and were ready to begin playing after being provided with no more than a stage and an electrical outlet. Planning a wedding can be a very stressful task and it was great to know that we didn't have to worry about Phat Chants.

The band played with outstanding sound quality during our dinner and reception. They unexpectedly offered to play a softer, mellow mix of songs for dinner, which proved to be a much better alternative than the "cocktail music" satellite radio station that we were planning on listening to. Phat Chants kicked off the reception with a special song that they had learned for our first dance – another impressive offering from this band that you might not find elsewhere. Throughout the rest of the night, they continued to play many excellent songs from their playlist while taking requests and even offering a tremendous drum solo!

Overall, I would highly recommend Phat Chants. You will not be disappointed because they are independent, sound great and play an amazing variety of music. Jim Davis and his band were an amazing addition to our celebration – in fact, many of us think that they "made" our reception. I cannot thank the Phat Chants band enough for their remarkable performance at our wedding reception!

Due to a severe rainstorm -- which we had expected not to be a problem -- we were forced to move the band inside at the last minute. Jim and is band were helpful and flexible about the change in plans and made the difficult situation a non-problem, and adjusting to space much tighter than the planned outdoor deck had no ill effects on their terrific playing and song list.
