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 the brief video clip here, and stream the full-length audio of the performance via SoundCloud below!




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!
