Phil Emmanuel is known as Australia's Greatest Electric Guitar Player and has a resume of amazing performances with musical legends that any musical enthusiast would envy.
Whilst most kids were playing childhood games in their backyards, at the age of nine Phil was working as a professional musician in his family's band. Phil played lead and brother Tommy played rhythm guitar, along with their brother Chris on drums and their sister Virginia on slide guitar.
Phil's musical roots stem back to the 50's, 60's and 70's his style and preference has largely been defined by the classic guitar sounds of this era, the instrumental tunes that defined the sound of the electric guitar when it was a new instrument. Phil's influences include guitar great Hank B Marvin and The Shadows, the Ventures and the Beatles.
Phil's versatility is well known and acknowledged, by both musicians and fans alike, which becomes obvious from the reception he receives at all his shows, along with all the accolades from the musicians he has performed alongside, from Jazz – James Morrison, Don Burrows to Big-Band – Ed Wilson, the Royal Military College Band, to Country – Slim Dusty, Reg Lindsay, Lee Kernaghan, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson Tammy Wynette, to Rock and Blues Dire Straits, The Shadows, Midnight Oil, Jimmy Barnes, Roy Buchanan, Don Walker, John Farnham and Ian Moss, and as the years go by the list continues to grow.
After almost 50 years of hard work, Phil Emmanuel deserves to receive Australian and worldwide recognition as one of our finest musical talents, and still after all these years Phil loves the job he was destined to do, and hopefully he will continue to enthral audiences worldwide for a long time to come. Fans have the chance to catch him at Tewantin Noosa RSL on Saturday 25 March from 8pm.
