PHOX at Amigos

Tickets available at Amigos and ticketedge.ca starting Friday, March 13th.
Called Madison, Wisconsin’s “musical success story of 2013”, Before PHOX formed, a majority of them took part in Zach Johnston’s album called Sonntag which was written in San Francisco, but recorded in Wisconsin by PHOX drummer, Davey Roberts. Some time later while Matt Holmen was playing with Davey Roberts, Matt Roberts (keys), and Jason Krunnfusz (bass) in Baraboo wisconsin, he was asked to play a one-off show (Boo Bash, May 5, 2011) and agreed, but was without songs or a singer. Monica Martin joined the unofficial group for said show and they played cover songs/songs off the Sonntag record as they were all familiar. Moving forward, Monica wrote lyrics and melodies, and the group arranged the songs from their first two EP’s and their self-titled first record release.
The band released their EP Confetti in early 2013, for which they created a video component for each track. The rest of 2013 brought their success to the next level with a Daytrotter session, positive press, a spot at South by Southwest and a national tour opening for Blitzen Trapper. The band played Lollapalooza as a last-minute addition in August 2013, drawing a large crowd despite their midday spot. In September 2013 PHOX opened for The Lumineers at Apple’s iTunes Festival in London. The band is currently managed by Onto Entertainment and signed to Partisan Records. They recorded their latest full-length album at April Base – Justin Vernon’s home studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
