Guitar, Vocals
Phil is an experienced acoustic guitar player and lead/backup vocalist. His up-tempo playing style contributes to the energy of the The Devil's Drink and often leads to sore joints at the end of the night. Phil is always investigating new glam rock ballads to bring to the setlist and manages to sneak them in from time to time.


Bass, Mandolin, Vocals
Drew is the product of a punk music background which chewed him up and spat him out to become a founding member of The Devil's Drink. Rocking the bass and the mandolin, Drew also finds time to take on lead vocals on many songs. To answer the obvious questions - no he doesn't look like this most of the time, and yes he is married. Sorry ladies.

Vocals, Pennywhistle, Concertina
Ashleen is by far the best looking member of The Devil's Drink. Her musical background is extraordinary. While accomplished at the whistle and the concertina, her angelic voice has a tendency to make grown men weep, and then order more beer. A more talented musician we could not hope to find, just don't tell her that. We need her.
