ABOUT

PHOENIXX is a consistently working Classic Rock band. Most of the tunes we cover are by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artists. We cover 50 years of music, from Elvis to Bruno Mars. We typically gig twice a month, sometimes more, depending upon opportunities. Historically we have played more private events such as weddings and corporate functions, than club dates. We recently joined Reverbnation and are looking to up our game in terms of the kinds of venues we play and the amounts of money each band member earns.
