Josh was absolutely excellent. He was extremely professional while bring a young, hip vibe to our reception. We chose to leave much of the night up to his discretion and he did a great job of reading the crowd and kept the party going all night. I would highly recommend Josh and his team. After researching several DJs, Josh was by far the most friendly and real. He has a passion for this work and is an artist himself.
I hired Inspire for my Wedding for a DJ and lighting.I was blown away with their excellent service. Josh made all my wishes come to life on my big day. I couldn't have asked for more. Five Stars!!!!!.I would highly recommend them for all brides to be .:)
My bride had her wedding planned for months and the week of her wedding her DJ cancelled leaving her (and I) in a panic to find a last minute DJ. I called Josh and he truly saved the day! He worked with my bride 3 days before her wedding to develop her timeline and make sure he had the music she wanted. What could have been a nightmare turned out to be a great experience! My bride was thrilled! Thank you Josh for saving my bride's day and mine too! :) Natalie
We couldn't have been happier with having Phase5 for our wedding reception. Having found the band on the internet and not witnessing their talented performance in person, we were blown away by them! Josh was professional and pleasant to work with leading up to the wedding date and just as wonderful the night of the event. The dance floor was packed from the moment they started playing until the end of the night. A perfect collection of songs that appealed to everyone. Everyone was gushing about how great this band was and I highly recommend them!!!
Phase 5 band was hired to play at my daughter's wedding reception in Boca Grande, FL on 4-26-14. They exceeded all of my expectations. From early on to booking them, to email communications, to working with us on the timeline, to entertaining, to working with the venue staff etc. they get 10 out of 10 stars from me.
They knew how to MC the reception and keep the evening flowing. Literally people were dancing the entire time they were playing. Thank you Phase 5 band.
WOW! Phase5 was even better than I imagined they would be! I cannot tell you how many guests raved to us about how amazing they were! They really know how to set the mood! They also provided our up-lighting for us, that looked amazing! When I (the bride) requested a song they didn't have on their list, they got it for me! They were so great! You won't regret this band! I am only sorry I didn't get to thank them personally, but the night completely got away from me, and before I knew it, the wedding was over. Thank you so much Phase5! You guys are amazingly talented!
As the mother of the bride, I had very high expectations for our daughter's wedding celebration and wanted it to be absolutely perfect. After reading reviews and listening to Phase 5 perform at Timpano's restaurant, we were sold and booked them over a year ago. I was absolutely amazed at their performance at our daughter's wedding reception at The Vinoy this past Saturday evening! They performed their "master of ceremonies" duties perfectly, and proceeded to play a never ending succession of songs that kept ALL of our guests dancing the night away! I knew we had hit a home run when I saw no one at their tables, but rather on the dance floor. They played music that appealed to all age groups as well, so even my 85 year old mother- in- law had a wonderful time! Our guests have raved about the band - so many people came up to me and asked me where I had found the fabulous group of performers. The vocalist was amazing - I cannot give them enough compliments! Thank you Josh and company for truly making the night magical!
They were amazing at our wedding reception. Everyone loved them. We highly recommend them for any event.
I had a destination wedding in Florida this past April. Not being from the area, it was more difficult to research local bands. I started looking online, but found cheesy wedding band after cheesy wedding band. I was getting discouraged and was about to go with a DJ, but then I came across Phase 5. I viewed their videos online, and they were EXACTLY what I was looking for. They had a great look and amazing voices. I started asking some other vendors that I was working if they had any band recommendations, and every single one of them said Phase 5. So, I knew it was meant to be! When I first contacted Josh about playing at my wedding, he told me they were booked for my date. I was so disappointed, that I started to look into changing my wedding date, just so I could have them play. Luckily, it was a mix up, and they were available! What I liked most about Josh and Phase 5 was that Josh is also a professional DJ, so I was able to have a DJ and Band all in one. They also provided my ceremony music, and did my uplighting. Josh always immediately responded to any emails and questions I had, and the wedding went perfect. I could not have been happier with Phase 5 and my guests kept raving about the band for days after the wedding. I can honestly say that having Phase 5 play at my wedding was the main reason everyone had so much fun.
danced all night long so did our family and friends - what does that say
Great communication between us and Inspire, and their website was very user friendly. Josh did a great job.
Inspire Entertainment came recommended by our photographer. I didn't look at any other vendors and do not regret my decision. Jamie was fun and professional. He made great music selections based on my guidance. As a result, the dance floor was full all night and we, as well as our guests, had a ball! I would highly recommend Jamie and Inspire.
I hired Josh Walther from inspired dj and was very excited to work with him. He was so nice and easy going. He always got back to me immediately with any questions I had. We went over everything we wanted and I had heard lots of good things about him. He told me he would be bringing someone to help him set up our uplighting. Well it turned out that his partner was the only person I saw, I never met Josh or saw him at all at my wedding. I was very upset about this, the other guy had no personality, just stood there and played songs which anyone could have done. I heard from a couple guests he wasnt friendly. I was very disapointed. I feel like if Josh were there it would have been completely different and Im pretty upset I ended up with this other guy. We spent a lot of money and I dont feel it was worth what I got.
Josh was the DJ I used for.my wedding music. He did a great job. He worked to get every song I wanted and even chose the right tunes where needed. He did a great job remembering everyone's name to be introduced and was very friendly.
Jamie from Inspire Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made in hiring for my daughter's wedding. He was on time, totally prepared, had excellent attention to detail, looked and acted professional in every way and "kept the party going." Every time I contacted him, he responded immediately. He was also responsible for the sound system at the beach wedding ceremony and made sure it would function properly under any and all conditions. First class all the way!
When we were interviewing potential DJs in the beginning, I was all about having a DJ b/c my experience with bands have been either average or not good. When our wedding planner recommended Phase 5 and the DJ combo, my then fiancé was all over it. I was skeptical but after talking to Josh, reading a bunch of reviews and hearing some of the band’s songs – I was sold. Our family/friends love to dance so we wanted to have great music to have people out on the dance floor the whole night.
Josh and Samantha have amazing voices and the songs they played were modern and fit the mood. Phase 5 played for a couple hrs – during dining and first hour of dancing. The last two hours of the night, Josh took over as DJ to keep the dance floor crowded. Our guests couldn’t stop commenting about how good the band was and how much fun they had!!
Dealing with Josh was great – easy going, open to requests and gave us a good deal for the band/DJ combo (also included the lighting, which was a nice touch to our room). We were at the Don CeSar and moved to the larger Grand Ballroom at the last minute and Josh was able to accommodate with more lighting at a discount. Overall, great experience with Inspire Entertainment and HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you want the hands down best band in the area, a 5 star DJ or both!
They were a bit more than some of the dj's we looked at. They were not cheesy at all though and played all of the songs that we requested. The problems that we ran into was that our timeline was not followed and the volume was a little conservative.
Jamie was fantastic! He did everything he could to keep things smooth. Whenever he had a question, he would come to my husband and me to make sure"this" is what we wanted. He was so accommodating and just a nice guy. So great to work with!
Josh was simply amazing at our recent wedding and we couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. He was highly recommended by multiple wedding vendors and we felt at ease knowing that he was so highly respected by many of his colleagues in the wedding industry. Josh met with us early on to customize our event and helped us achieve the vision we had for our wedding --he perfectly executed an elegant yet fun atmosphere! He played the perfect combination of music to please all of our guests of varying ages and had everyone on the dance floor all night long. From the start of cocktail hour to the end of the reception, Josh was able to integrate the music we liked with other music he selected to fit along with our guests’ tastes and the overall feel of our wedding. He also did a wonderful job facilitating the announcement of key events throughout the evening.
Josh truly has the technical skills and ability to play the right song at the right time. He exceeded our expectations in every way and we would highly recommend Inspire Entertainment for any bride looking for an absolutely fabulous DJ who has the talent of putting on a great wedding party!
Josh will always be one of the great heroes of our wedding! We were a long distance couple from Los Angeles where I am a musician and work in catering. I work at a wedding or two every week and see all kinds of DJ's and bands. We hired Phase 5 to play our reception and Josh to be our after-party DJ. They were a huge hit! Even though it was 80something degrees and the sun was high in the sky, people couldn't resist the urge to get on the dance floor. Josh is an amazing talent and has such a versatile voice. He and his bass player were also gracious enough to let our friend get up and sing us a song. Not only did our guests have a blast, but people in the area couldn't help but stop by to listen to how great they sounded! All day during our reception, guests were saying to us "These guys are so great! Where did you find this band?" We continue to receive compliment upon compliment about Josh. He is also the perfect DJ to have at your wedding because he is the opposite of cheeseball (we all know the type). He played exactly what we asked for and provided beautiful lighting to set the mood when the sun went down. Josh's website is incredibly easy. In fact, he is the one wedding vendor we never even needed to talk to! We just went on his website and created our play (and do not play) list. He has it set up in such an easy and organized way. It's no surprise to us that he won a national "Entertainer of The Year" award and we feel so lucky that our wedding planner recommended him! We HIGHLY recommend him!
