Returning to the Wayne County 4H Fair, Phillip Fox explains their musical motivation, “For us it’s about the music first” explains front man, Phillip Fox. “Our favorite songs and artists are timeless. It’s great music that transcends scenes, fads, and production trends. We’re not really paying attention to what’s popular at the moment or what will get played on the radio and we hope that comes as a breath of fresh air in our music.”Backdraft Band- Saturday, June 25, at 10:00 a.m.
