Phoenixx / Bio

PHOENIXX has been together for over 20 years and has played over 1000 gigs in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York. We've played hundreds of weddings and as many corporate events. PHOENIXX provides a total entertainment package encompassing a broad range of music - including music from early Elvis to Bruno Mars. Every band member sings lead vocals at one time or another and well harmonized vocals are one of the band's signature traits. Our two guitarists and piano player are talented solo instrumentalists and can provide easy listening classical or jazz music during cocktails and dinner as soloists, or as a duet or trio. PHOENIXX provides an energetic musical experience laced with timely comedy, audience engaging staging and a unique ability to incorporate special material into every event. Your guests will be dancing all night long and talking about your event for years afterwards. We have a huge repertoire and can provide dance music for everyone from the age of 9 to 99. PHOENIXX helps you through every detail of the entertainment planning process. We provide our totally unique BRIDAL and SPECIAL EVENT gift registry that make our services affordable for even the tightest budgets. Whether you're planning a wedding reception, a 50th wedding anniversary celebration or a block party, let us show you how our registry can completely eliminate the expense of live entertainment from your budget.


We're all trained music professionals and highly experienced entertainers who love our work and it shows. That's why we've played so many weddings, corporate events, restaurants, hotels, pubs, lounges, park district and fund raising events. We are a great alternative to standard event bands, you get straight-up covers of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist music together with a good measure of billboard Country hot 100, Pop and Rock hot 100, Great jazz standards and even well-performed traditional Irish music when the occasion calls for it.

Because we are working professionals that often perform in hotels, country clubs, exclusive private residences and other venues with expensive artifacts, furnishings and sometimes priceless works of art, we carry a $5 million umbrella insurance policy for your protection (and ours).

Here's what our clients have to say:

"OMG guys, your website is AMAZING! LOVE the 8 minute sampler...and you guys will ROCK my daughter's wedding.

Please remember that you are an INSTITUTION...and this is my family TRADITION to hire (the former Endless Knights) to entertain our families in partner with some of the most important ceremonies of our lives. Wedding ceremonies are BORING...but they'll always talk about the BAND, long after the priest or preacher leaves. God's honest truth! My elder parents and their friends were talking about OUR wedding (do you remember, Sept 11th, 1999?) with the Endless Knights for many years after! YOUR live music lives on in the hearts of the guests at the reception.

I am soooo happy that you are all making the trek to NYC. You are my gift to my daughter. Please let me know what more I may do to accommodate you all on your trip to NYC."

St. Patty's Party! Phoenixx will be appearing live at 9pm! It's always a party when they come to the "Hedz." These guys have been playing together for years and it shows! Great sound, great selection of music, great all around entertainers...they really know how to get the party started! We will have our Corned Beef and Cabbage special all day...plenty of green beer and festive St. Patty's beverages for all! NO COVER! You will definitely need to get here early for a good seat...these guys pack the house!

St. Patrick's Day 2012

"You guys must be one of the Chicago area's best kept secrets. You put on an incredible show and play your instruments like no band I have ever seen. I closed my eyes during your performance of "Wonderful Tonight" and thought I was listening to a recording of Eric Clapton - the performance was so spot-on. The same thing happened when you played "All Shook Up" by Elvis, your rhythm guitarist sounded like Scottie Moore and your lead singer sounded EXACTLY like Elvis. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to see you guys performing live. You provided a great evening of music and fun for my friends and myself. We can't wait to catch your show again."
