About the Band:

“Join us for a classic night of the baddest OGs on the scene… keepin’ it native!”

There are two reasons Phil Young is an uptown legend. First, for his work as a florist: for many years, he ran the Carolina Flower Shop, one of Harlem’s oldest and most beloved stores. Second, for his drumming: in the early sixties, when Phil was in his teens, his band won a competition at the Apollo Theatre. The legendary blues and R. & B. singer Bobby (Blue) Bland happened to be there, and asked Young to tour with him in night clubs around the country. A music career drumming for the likes of George Benson and Dizzy Gillespie followed. Phil Young is the drummer & leader of “The Harlem Hip.” A much-loved figure in the uptown community, Phil has played with legendary figures like Bobby “Blue” Bland, Jimi Hendrix, George Benson, Art Farmer, & Dizzy Gillespie, among others!
