With a poppy combination of swing, reggae, rockabilly and surf, Philo-san (fye-low sahn) has created a unique sound that is redefining Detroit Rock. Hailing from suburban Detroit, this distinctive trio combines catchy melodies, quirky guitar licks, funky bass lines, and versatile drumming to form a retro-rock sound that is much bigger than the sum of its parts.

Forming out of life-long friendships, the members of Philo-san have witnessed each others growth into committed musicians first-hand. Since joining musical forces in 2003, Ralph Mangeno (guitar/vocals), Mike Boettner (bass) and Tim Cooper (drums) have all shared the common goal of creating music that is raucous, danceable, and memorable.

Creating, learning, and performing together, members of Philo-san are now looking to take their show on the road to bigger and better things. In support of the debut album, "Mind Over Manners," Philo-san is set to continue its trend of winning over crowds, one show at a time.
