ABOUT

Hi...My name is Mark Phillips. I have been playing musical instruments since age six and have been a professional entertainer for over 25 years. I play electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, drums, bass and sing. Also a songwriter, so would like to include some originals when possible... I can blow fire too....

I would describe myself as more of an entertainer/front man that a classically trained musician. Its fun to switch gear between songs and sets, so, would like to work with other musicians that play multiple instruments too...

Looking to join/form a band that puts as much emphasis on showmanship than just playing cover songs. KISS is a good example...Their music was kick ass, but their show blows everyone away. And I can blow fire like Gene Simmons.... I did Elvis Presley impersonations for 20 years, and the outfits and the show were a big part of the draw....

I like to combine Rock & Roll with Dance music....

I am more Beatles than I am Nirvana....Something about organization and dressing the part appeals to me....
