Tribute to Phil Emmanuel

In 2018, Parkes Elvis Festival was proud to induct Phil & Tommy Emmanuel into the Elvis Wall of Fame.

We were extremely fortunate to have Phil perform during the 2018 Festival, and he loved the Festival so much that he started planning his 2019 shows directly after.

Sadly, in May 2018, Phil died suddenly from an asthma attack.

The Festival will honour Phil in a special tribute show, coordinated by his brother Darcy. A number of respected musicians will come together in Phil’s honour. Entertainers include Jamie ‘Floorboards’ Bryen, Dean Ray, Michael Moores and Elisa Massari.

Two of the guitarists are prodigies of Phil’s, who he taught as teenagers, and Phil had the highest regard for.

Jamie “Floorboards” Bryen, who Phil believed was that good a player that he could play Orange Blossom Special on a barbed wire fence.

Dean Ray, runner up in the 2014 X Factor, who Phil described as Australia’s next international rock star, with unlimited ability.

There is no doubt they will play the house down in memory of the legend, Phil Emmanuel.

Jamie 'Floorboards' Bryen

Jamie ‘Floorboards’ Bryen picked up the guitar for the first time at age 13 and from the very first note, discovered a talent which would forever change the course of his life. The Emmanuel brothers, Phil and Tommy were his first influences/hero’s, thanks to the collection of old videos and records from his dad.
