We celebrated our 30th anniversary with 90 friends and The Phil Abair band rocked the tent for 3 hours. Everyone danced--even friends who "don't dance". They took one break and then kept on playing until the party was over. They are talented and can play just about anything. I asked them to learn a song to surprise my husband (it was the first song played at our wedding). They learned it and played it for us and it was great. Everyone commented on how good the band was. I would certainly hire them again. They were amazing!

Phil and the members of his band made a really good birthday party GREAT. They played a beautiful soft set through cocktails and dinner and then had everyone up and dancing for the rest of the evening. What I loved was how well they knew our guest’s musical tastes, especially considering we ranged in age from 8 to eighty! They’re professional, easy to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone thinking about having music for an event. You won’t be disappointed.

The Phil Abair Band was AMAZING - 5 stars on all points! That was the VERY first time I've seen my sales team (mostly men) all dancing on the floor, laughing, sweating and having a GREAT time! I've already recommended them to the hotel that I'm staying at in Lake Placid in case they get any future local band requests. We will definitely be using them again in the future! :-)

My wife and I are in our early 30s and the Phil Abair Band played our anniversary party with about 60 guests. They were terrific. Great musical quality and selection, got everyone dancing, and very nice guys (and gal). Lots of compliments from our guests, too. Also, Phil was diligent with the administrative/logistics side, and easy to work with. We highly recommend this band - they know what they're doing and they do it very well. -Lee
