THE PHONIX BAND
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 theaters and just about every casino in Vancouver.
