Phillip Fox Band

Southern country/rockers, the Phillip Fox Band, will kick off 2015 Homecoming Week at Texas A&M University-Texarkana at the Chalk the Walk Block Party at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, In front of the University Center. 

The A&M-Texarkana concert and block party are free and open to the public. Pulled pork will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.

"In an age where music is free, fans are digital, and bands are measured in buzz, Phillip Fox Band has taken a classic approach to their music and their career," according to the band's website. "Great songs, crafted arrangements, three-part harmonies and 175 rowdy shows a year hasn't made them media darlings but it has been winning them fans one concert at a time."

"For us it's about the music first," front man Phillip Fox explained. "Our favorite songs and artists are timeless. It's great music that transcends scenes, fads and production trends.  We're not really paying attention to what's popular at the moment or what will get played on the radio, and we hope that comes as a breath of fresh air in our music."

The band's trademark Southern Rock-inspired sound dubbed "Country-Fried Rock'n'Roll" was most recently realized in their 2014 release, Heartland, which earned a “New and Noteworthy” distinction from iTunes.  This full-length album came two years after their Motor City Blood EP and raised $18,000 on Kickstarter from their rapidly growing fanbase known as Beard Backers.

PFB shows no signs of letting up on their touring schedule as 2015 will see them branching into new geographies in the South and Southwest.

As bassist Jonathan Kampfe put it,"There are a lot of music fans out there that are starving for more authentic, organic music. We hear from them all the time and we're excited to bring the live show to their city."
