Phase 5 Plays with Sir Paul McCartney! For Real.

Josh Walther and the Phase 5 Band shared the stage with a living legend on Saturday night, May 9, 2015. They were hand picked by Sir Paul McCartney and his wife to play at a family event, and there was certainly no saying “no” when he asked to join them in an impromptu blues riff “Graduation” and a rendition of The Beatles “I Saw Her Standing There.”

As if that were not thrill enough, the story has gone viral… from here to Brazil, New Zealand, and even Good Morning America! Check out what everyone in the world has to say online here, check out the brief video clip here, and stream the full-length audio of the performance via SoundCloud below!

Five years of phase5!!

Phase5 recently celebrated its 5th anniversary! To commemorate the milestone, the band will release its very first LIVE album. The record will feature some of the band’s favorite performances from the last few years. While an official date has not been set, the target release is late 2015. 

Since coming together in 2009 the group has released 2 albums, entertained record-breaking crowds at major events and played at almost 500 weddings. They have also won numerous prestigious awards, including Best Wedding Band (Tampa A List), Entertainer of the Year (Event Solutions Magazine), Best Band (Yelp), Couples' Choice Award (WeddingWire) and Best of Weddings (TheKnot).




The Music

Since their start in 2009, Phase5 has become a driving force within the wedding and event entertainment industry. The band is recognized for their ability to engage a crowd and give guests an amazing experience at any type of event. Phase5 is widely known for their ability to combine everything from rock, soul, pop, funk, R&B, Motown, jazz and classics into an evening of music that people of all ages will remember. 

The band features two award-winning vocalists with electric guitar, drums, keyboards and bass. Phase5 also gives clients the option of adding horns. Additionally, the band provides a DJ to play during their breaks and serve as master of ceremonies. This ensures the party never ends!
