Growing up in San Francisco’s Mission District in the ‘60s, Phillip would go down to Dolores Park every week to jam with the likes of Jose Areas and Oscar Rivera. As lead percussionist since 2005, he provides the rhythmic foundation for everything the band does. Phillip also made his debut playing the saxophone on the group’s 2009 CD Ain’t Going Back.
A member of The Note-Ables since 1999, Michelle is a well-loved face at performances and around town. She sings and dances her heart out at every performance. Michelle is also a wonderful ambassador for the group with her outgoing personality and ongoing outreach efforts!
“Wow, he’s awesome!” is what people often say the first time they hear Mark play. A perfectionist, he practices every day – always wanting to get things just a little tighter. Mark is also a patient volunteer who helps out with other Note-Ables programs as well as playing with the band.
In addition to his membership in The Note-Ables, Michael is also a student at TMCC. He is multi-talented and his real love of music lies in the dark corners of “death metal.” He longs for the day when The Note-Ables play a cover from his favorite band, Tool. Until then, Michael is working hard to learn all his bass, saxophone and vocal parts while balancing time to study.
