She began her association with Don Caldwell Productions in the early 90’s with 4th on Broadway. Since that time she has partnered with Don and his company to grow events that feature West Texas artists, as well as cutting edge nationally renowned performers.
Working with Caldwell Productions and now with Caldwell Entertainment, she was the lead event coordinator for such events as the Buddy Holly Gala, Lubbock Land Company’s 15th Anniversary party, numerous Christmas concerts and events, New Year’s Eve events, Weddings and Corporate parties. One in particular that stands out was the City Wide Millennium New Year’s Eve party, which also debuted Steve Teeters’ sculptures that now stand in front of the Wells Fargo Amphitheater. One of her most exciting and challenging events was as a production manager for Lubbock’s Centennial Opening and Closing Celebrations with “The Lubbock Legends Concerts” hosted by Mac Davis and produced by Don Caldwell. Over the years Phyllis has volunteered as Chairman of 4th on Broadway in 1996 and took over the Presidency of Broadway Festivals, Inc. in January 2001 thru 2004 and again from 2009 thru 2011. She also served as Chairman of the Buddy Holly Festivals in the late 90’s and Chairman of Lubbock Music Festivals in the early 2000’s. She was also been chairman of the City of Lubbock Citizens Advisory Committee, Lubbock Parks & Recreation and was a fund raiser and organizer for the Freedom Fountain at Huneke Park. She was elected to the Lubbock City Council in 2004 and served until her term expired in 2008.
Phyllis’ passion to help Lubbock embrace its music heritage and culture arts is unsurpassed. Her volunteerism in this community has made a major difference. She is masterful organizer and event coordinator for Caldwell Entertainment Productions and Promotions.
