Some History



The Phoenix River Band's roots stretch back over 15 years and with a large back catalogue of original and varied songs stretching over 5 albums, PRB has performed with many classic bands including Wishbone Ash, 10cc, The Blockheads, Yardbirds, Focus and Walter Trout. PRB play fully electric or 'unplugged' sets and sometimes a mixture of the two. 


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 album ‘The River’ 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.”
