Led by New Orleans transplant, Devin Phillips (The Headhunters, Delfeayo Marsalis), Devin Phillips Band is a powerhouse quintet rooted in jazz and funk. Jaws drop, heads spin and feet move when they launch!

About Devin Phillips:

Born and reared in New Orleans, the cradle of jazz, Devin Phillips' intense affair with the saxophone began at the age of eight. At 14, he was accepted into the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, whose alumni include Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick, Jr. and Nicholas Payton. There, trained in music theory and multi-styles composition, he graduated in 2000 with top honors.

In 2005, Phillips formed New Orleans Straight Ahead. But in August, Hurricane Katrina muted the music. With all gone, save his sax, and his family scattered throughout the U.S., Phillips evacuated to Portland and reformed New Orleans Straight Ahead with other musician evacuees. Since opening the 2006 Portland Jazz Festival, his signature sound has not only been featured on KMHD-FM jazz radio specials and Northwest festivals, but also in newspaper and magazine articles, as well as online articles.

    Been trying to see Devin since he relocated but the timing has always been wrong. This weekend is perfect and look forward to some great sax playing.

    NOLA and the music and culture from this unique American place moves me to my core. I’d love to see this show and revel in that spirit that only NOLA natives know how to invoke.

    My husband and I would love to see this band. We have 2 kiddos – our youngest is 11 months and getting out on the town to enjoy good music is one of those things put “on hold”. Great timing – our babysitters – ie, my parents “papa and grandma” are here visiting from Maryland. What better opportunity to get out and enjoy a date night on the town!
