Fenix Rising

Fenix Rising


The Fenix Rising band, is a dynamic, soulful rhythm and blues band led by saxophonist/vocalist Fenix Sanders. The band has held court in Portland’s most venerable juke joint, the Blue Diamond, every Wednesday for nearly 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.
