    PRESS RELEASE: New Orleans' musician E.J. Phillips will bring his unique style of blues to the Avenue Cafe' (2021 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing) on Tuesday, July 16th. E.J., a fixture on Bourbon Street for more than 25 years, will be backed by Lansing's "Hittin' Home" band. Phillips is no stranger to the area. He spent several months in Lansing during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when his family was displaced by the costliest storm to hit the U.S. It took almost two years for his family to repair their 19th century home in New Orleans' Seventh Ward. E.J.grew up in the Crescent City's Desire Housing Project during an exciting time; the 1960s. When he was 15 years old, he overheard a neighbor playing Jimi Hendrix's Are You Experienced album. It changed his life. He picked up a guitar and was soon putting on impromtu concerts in the courtyard. "When I was 20, I would come home from work, eat dinner and practice for four hours a night," he recalls. In the early 80s, Phillips played lead guitar for ska band "The Sweat Socks" and the punk band "Disappointed Parents". In 1983, E.J. formed his distinctive "Electric Blues Band" in New Orleans playing on Bourbon Street and has been a fixture there ever since. He currently performs weekends at the Sing Sing Club, 418 Bourbon Street, in NOLA.
