A bit about us
Phoenix River Band's roots stretch back over 15 years comprising a large back catalogue of original and varied songs stretching over five albums. Playing fully electric or 'unplugged' sets and sometimes a mixture of the two, the band has performed with many classic artists including Wishbone Ash, 10cc, The Blockheads, Yardbirds, Focus and Walter Trout.

The current band members are:
Chris Melhuish Guitar and Vocals
Andy Allpass Keyboards and Backing Vocals
Dave Dunster Drums and Backing Vocals
Jo Melhuish Vocals and Backing Vocals
Shelley Dunster Backing Vocals
Mike Pitt Bass
Muddy Manninen Guitars
PRB and via its earlier incarnation as 'AFGM' have had the pleasure of some fine musicians over the years. Take a peek at the gallery photos for some past faces.
The last AFGM album, ‘The River’, released in 2009, received ★★★★★ critical acclaim on iTunes. “This is a wonderful album with tracks as varied as ‘The River’ with a passing nod to Pink Floyd, to ‘Picture’ with a hint of country rock. A joy.” A number of songs have made it through to the PBB set all be it with some 'updating' by the current line-up.
