I wish I could hear more guitar players like Phil Para!” – Phil Emmanuel

Only Phil Para can turn the heads of such legends.  Tonight at Seaford Band Room catch Phil Para and the boys as part of Friday Night Blues Club from 8pm.

Phil Para is a guitarist/ singer/ songwriter and undoubtedly one of the most exciting performers in Australia.

Phil earns great respect from peers and audiences alike and attracts a cult-like following wherever he plays.

New Zealander, Phil Para has been a professional musician since age 9 & with Jimi Hendrix as his absent mentor and inspiration Phil’s talent soon grew to the point where he could accurately replicate the playing and vocal styles of the guitar greats including Hendrix, Clapton, Stevie Ray & Santana to name a few.

Phil writes many original songs, drawing from a diverse range of music with blues, jazz, Latin and rock influences fusing into a style of his own. Phil’s performances combine original music with covers to create an exciting stage show that never fails to enthrall.
