2017 CFMF Headline Entertainer: Mike Phillips

This year’s event will feature entertainment by world renowned saxophonist, Mike Phillips. Phillips and his soulful yet funky grooves have brought standing ovations at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, inaugural balls for Presidents Clinton and Obama and for the NFL, NBA and MLB games, performing the National Anthem across the country. He is the first musician signed to the Jordan brand and the only musician in the world to have recorded and toured with the legendary “Big Three” of American soul music: Stevie Wonder, Prince, and Michael Jackson. His television credits include performances on the Grammys, BET Awards, BET Honors and the Soul Train Awards. Here is what Minnesota music legend, Prince once had to say about Phillips:

“I was offstage, listening to Michael Phillips take his solo. I was thinking ‘Wow, listen to those people responding, and all he’s doing is playing a saxophone.’ They can feel that what he’s doing is real. So many shows now…they are so dead. But here’s one man breathing into an instrument, and the whole room feels alive. It made me want to rise up to that level when I came back onstage.” -Prince, Rolling Stone, 2004

Music superstar Prince knew what audiences around the world also know…when Mike Phillips puts his saxophone to his lips, magic is about to happen!
