Description

The Phil Demos Band includes Ted Tsangarinos on keyboard, Phil Demas on drums, an unidentified guitarist, and Spiro Skordilis on bouzouki. The band frequently played Greek popular music at community events in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Skordilis had been a popular musician and composer in Greece before he came to the U.S., where he eventually settled in Tarpon Springs. The Greek community has always maintained regional, religious, and popular musical traditions performed by individuals and groups in homes, church, clubs, and social organizations.
