We have also written music for some of our clients including “Capri Girl” for the island of Capri, “Duncan Suits You” for Duncan of Nice and “B Saint Tropez” for Blonde of St Tropez beer.
Q: How did you guys meet?
A: We met at Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2006. We took a 2 week vacation to Nice France in 2008 where we began honing our street performing abilities. We applied all the musical knowledge we had acquired at Berklee and added the raw energy of busking to create The Phly Boyz. When the vacation was over, we decided to stay forever.
Q: Why the name?
A: “Phly” as in “on the fly” represents our spontaneity when we perform, along with “Boyz” which represents our spirit of being forever young. The use of “Ph” and “Z” in the spelling is an homage to our childhoods growing up in America in the 90’s when “phly” meant cool and boys was spelled “boyz.”
Q: What do you do?
A: Our specialty is performing entirely acoustic. No microphones or speakers necessary. We also offer a wireless or stage show for larger events. You can find us on a table, on a beach, on a glacier, on a boat, on a stage. Truly anywhere and everywhere. We entertain the entertainers.
Q: What's the story behind your Drum Kit?
A: Since the band's creation we have been looking for ways to improve our show and adding a Kick Drum has always been something we've wanted to do. Thanks to our friend Shawn Ryan, at Salt Drums in California, we've finally found a way to make it possible. With his expertise we we're able to design The Ultimate Busking Kit which has taken our show to the next level. For the best custom drums in the world, visit saltdrums.com
