British born Simon Phillips is by far one of the world's most renowned and respected drummers.  His  style not only reflects his technical gift but also his distinct musical sensibility; whether it is rock, fusion or jazz,  he applies the same precision and intensity  with huge emotion and feel. As a child, Phillips played in his father’s  dixieland jazz band before taking the London session scene by storm.   In 1992 he moved to LA and joined the legendary US supergroup Toto with whom he would perform for 20-odd years.  His work with Jeff Beck introduced him to bass god Stanley Clarke through whom he would enter the US fusion scene, later appearing with heavyweights like Al DiMeola, Frank Zappa and Joe Satriani.  To date Philips has toured and recorded with many, many other bands and artists, including: Mick Jagger, The Who, Jack Bruce, Peter Gabriel, Tears for Fears, Roxy Music,  Robert Palmer, The Pretenders, Jon Anderson, Whitesnake and Dave Gilmour and Hiromi  to name but a few.  In 1997 Philips took his own band on tour, and for the first time he was the bandleader, and it was his music. Expanding his career to composing, Simon recorded his first album ‘Protocol’ in 1988 and has gone on to release a string of highly acclaimed albums, the most recent being 2015’s ‘Protocol III’ .

Simon Phillips is by far one of the world’s most renowned and respected drummers, whose style not only reflects his technical gift but also his distinct musical sensibility. Whether it is Rock, Fusion or Jazz, Simon applies the same precision and intensity to his drumming, which is never lacking in emotion and feel.

Phillips found an early prominence as the drummer on the 1976 LP 801 Live with Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno. He went on to play with a wide array of musicians including Big Jim Sullivan, Pete Townshend, Big Country, Toto, Steve Lukather, Jeff Beck, Whitesnake, Jack Bruce, Brian Eno, Mike Oldfield, Jon Anderson, 10cc, Mick Jagger, Joe Satriani, Phil Manzanera, Asia, Stanley Clarke, Jimmy Earl, Nik Kershaw and Gordon Giltrap.

He was the drummer for The Who in their 1989 American reunion tour, and appeared on solo recordings by band members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. He has also worked with Tears For Fears, with heavy metal act Judas Priest on Sin After Sin (1977) and Michael Schenker’s debut album The Michael Schenker Group.

Among other co-producer credits, he also co-produced and mixed two albums by Mike Oldfield.

In 1992, Phillips was asked to fill in for Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro.  Guitarist Steve Lukather stated that he would only go on tour if Toto could get Phillips to play the tour, so he was the first and only drummer that the band contacted to replace Porcaro. After the 1992/93 tour Phillips was asked to join Toto as a permanent member.

In 2009, Phillips joined with keyboardist Philippe Saisse and bassist Pino Palladino in forming an instrumental jazz/funk rock trio: Phillips Saisse Palladino or PSP. As well as touring with his own Protocol Simon also currently tours with Hiromi and Toto.

As a session player, he’s been highly featured on CDs by drumming legend Simon Phillips, a live CD with Olivia Newton-John (Andy has been her music director/guitarist for several U.S. tours), two internationally acclaimed CDs by Kip Winger, recording sessions for Paula Abdul, Paul Stanley, and countless radio and television jingles. He has also played alongside many of his heroes such as Steve Vai and Joe Satriani (as a regular guest on their G3 tours in Dallas), Eric Johnson, Steve Morse, Mike Stern, Ace Frehley, Ted Nugent, and Pierre Bensusan, as well as some of his fave ’60’s singing stars such as the Beach Boys, Lesley Gore, and Gordon Waller (of Peter and Gordon fame!)


Ernest Tibbs/bass

Ernest Tibbs graduated from the Bass Institute of Technology in 1989 receiving the Bass Student of the Year Award. Since then, he’s gone on to develop an impressive list of credits, including work with Natalie Cole, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, James Ingram, and Melba Moore.
