biographical info

This eight-piece outfit is a multi-talented, multi-influenced collective. Musicians, ranging from classically or jazz trained, to street-smart and self-taught, the POCKET DWELLERS bring their diverse talents together to create a line-up that includes guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, a cadre of horns, a couple of turntables, a hip-hop M.C. and a wallop of energy. The POCKET DWELLERS are one unique and powerful sound. The POCKET DWELLERS have opened for a very wide range of different musical acts, including such notable performers as N'Dea Davenport, G. Love and the Special Sauce, Rahzel, Charlie Hunter and jazz great Maceo Parker. They have also performed at a broad range of festivals such as JVC Acid Jazz Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, Winnipeg Jazz Festival, Du Maurier Atlantic Festival, Hillside Festival, and the Dawson City Music Festival.
