The Fenix Rising Band is a dynamic, soulful rhythm & blues group led by
saxophonist/vocalist Fenix. The band has held court in Portland’s most venerable
juke joint, the Blue Diamond, weekly for over twenty years. Fenix, with his
gravelly vocals and stirring sax, reveals the depth of emotion and experience of an
authentic blues man. He is backed by a smooth and well-oiled rhythm section:
Jason Thomas on guitar, Jeffery Frankel on drums, Calen Uhlig on bass, and Pat
McDougall on keyboards.
