Doug James and the Pocket, a Tour de Force of Chicago based musicians play their original brand of American Hip Shakin’ Music. It’s High Energy Roots with sounds that stir together meaty grooves, funky dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, gospel harmonies, with a rock and roll attitude and cheeky humor. The band ‘The Pocket’ was formed in 2009, and they have been stirring up the party animal in audiences ever since. Their groove is infectious and their attitude is fun! Music from contemporary bands like Tommy Castro, Vintage Trouble, Jon Cleary, Ray La Montagne and JJ Grey and Mofro to classic artists like The Meters, The Neville Bros. and Little Feat!
