The Phoenix was a Santa Cruz dance band (1997) that involved Drew Adams (keyboard/bass), Andrew Bolton (drums), Juliet Dostalek (keyboards/bass), Sean Adams (guitar/vox), Jen Dostalek (vox) and Chris Bolton (guitar).

The band started out as a four piece with Jen, Juliet, Sean, and Andrew. After there first show Juliet asked Sean's 14 year old brother Drew to play keyboards, which he had never played before.

After a few months of playing shows Sean decided to quit to start a new band (Signs and Symbols). Sean was replaced by Andrews older brother Chris. The band stook around for a while more playing lots of shows around town.
