Phonosonics is a Roots Reggae band from Victoria, BC. This powerhouse group specializes in vintage Jamaican Reggae, Rocksteady and Soul. They combine an electrifying danceability with soulful harmonies in a reverent update of a vintage style.

Lead by Spencer Cleave on Vocals, Guitar and Sax, Phonosonics features the die-hard rhythm section of Al Udell on Bass and Ned Saric on Drums. Anthony Shackell brings expert trumpet skills to the mix, which also features Ellen Crossley on vocals, Will Lynch on keyboards, Aidan Snider on guitar and various other local professionals who rotate in and out of the live band, flexing from 5 to 8 pieces.

Phonosonics has performed in club, party and festival settings. They have graced the stages of various festivals both high-end and grassroots, including the Victoria Ska and Reggae Festival and Rifflandia. They have performed tribute sets to classic soul and are as comfortable performing their own material as they are backing visiting reggae artists.

Phonosonics look forward to entertaining you at your local club or festival!
