Jon Phillip Packs Pop Punch

Band: Limbeck

Venue: Aug. 28th Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco, CA

My day started with the Outside Lands festival, then a visit to Thee Parkside and ended at San Francisco's Bottom of the Hill where I got to hear Jon Phillip producing great grooves and tasteful fills in Limbeck. He creates parts that add pop energy but don’t' detract from their catchy almost melodies. Phillips did time in the Benjamins and the Obsoletes before joining Limbeck in 2005.
