Phoenix

Formed out of the ashes of 2017 runners-up and 2016 winners "On The Brinck" the 2018 version takes a new musical direction, cranks up the energy dial to 10 and expectation to 1.

Band Members

 

Ian Chase

Instrument: drums

Having grown up watching the "Muppet Show", Ian was devastated when, at the age of 15, he found out the the muppets were not real. Unable to realise his dream of becoming the Swedish Chef's apprentice, he decided to follow in the footsteps of his other muppet idol, Animal. He is at least half as good as Rick Allen, 100% more real than Animal and with 3 times more hair than ol' Phil Collins

alex campbell

Instrument: guitar

Conceived backstage at a Motley Crew concert and born at a Twisted Sister gig, Alex has music flowing through his veins - literally ! No one can explain it but it has been proven in a series of lab experiments. Don’t question it, just enjoy his skills with Phoenix

daniel smith

Instrument: Bass / Vocals

Daniel is an enigma in the music world. Industry chat rooms are still alive with debate about whether he wore "pants" or "tights" at last year's Construction Rocks concert. The smart money is on the latter, but more importantly his talents are in high demand and Phoenix are lucky to have him as part of their rhythm section and vocalist.
