PHOENIX GIG + IPAD APPLICATION LAUNCH
A mythical bird that is a fire spirit builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises, reborn anew to live again.
This signifies the choice of the name for the band which has members from prominent bands, current and past, reborn anew to bring life to Classic Rock and Reggae, genres favored most by the pub going crowd of Hyderabad; also staying true to the band member’s musical roots.
