Phillip Vince BandPhilip Vince Band

 Southern Rock, blended with outlaw country and classic rock would be the best way to describe the music of Philip Vince and his  band. They play a wide variety of covers and original music, and always put on a family-friendly show. Their list of covers include artists such as Tom Petty, Kip Moore, Lynard Skynard, Guns-n-Roses, David Allen Coe, Eric Church, and many more. In 2013 the  Philip Vince Band entered the “American Country Star” competition where they finished in the top 36 out of around 4,000. This  included two trips to Nashville, TN where they performed at the historic Silver Dollar Saloon. In the summer of 2014 the band entered  the “Gorilla Music Battle of the Bands” for Little Rock, AR. After two rounds of the high-octane southern rock performances, Vince  and his band took the number one spot, where they won studio time to produce their first professionally produced album. The Philip Vince Band enjoys putting on a high-energy show, is known for rocking guitar solos, and gives performance showmanship. Vince likes to take the advice of Charlie Daniels: “come out like gang busters, and leave them with the hottest thing you’ve got!”
