well, I'd chk a few things:
- enable logger on the client to see if there are any exceptions  - Logger.getRootLogger().setLevel(Level.DEBUG);
- chk if hbase is alive, if there are any errors in the hbase logs, if you can access hbase master url, or hbase shell without issues, 
- see if you can connect with sqlline locally, 
- if you are connecting from this client machine for the first time, make sure /etc/hosts has the ip address of zookeeper quorum used by hbase

Russell, which version of Phoenix are you using on the server vs client? 
the most recent phoenix driver is  org.apache.phoenix.jdbc.PhoenixDriver 

I see older salesforce driver in your log, could be mismatch between client and server phoenix versions

I can't get a connection via JDBC to Phoenix. It simply sits there forever...
