"Pocket Band Complements poetry"

"When the lead singer and one of two guitars opened the first lines of Satisfy My Soul it was clear that they needed no props to rest upon."My soul is older than the dead sea scrolls/Don't really care if your driving a Benz or a rolls," lead singer Omar sang in his distinctive voice and all sat up and took notice." "...The reggae influence was obvious, but there was more than a hint of what is loosely called world music." - Mel Cooke - The Gleaner, Jamaica

Bio

    The Pocket Band is a Washington, DC-based alternative-rock-reggae band with an authentic island sound.

        Vocalist Omar Teitelbaum and Jamaican-born guitarist Terrence Brown intuitively fuse alternative rock, jazz, and hip-hop with reggae that are Jamaica-tested and crowd approved.

     The Pocket Band gained international respect in 2007 while on a 42-U.S. city tour with reggae icon Ronnie Davis of The Itals and at performances in Jamaica (Montego Bay, New Kingston and at the Western Consciousness Festival in Westmoreland). To date, The Pocket Band has performed with Ronnie Davis, Third World, Culture, Pato Banton, Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, Wailing Souls, Roberta Flack, and Nora Jones and at some of the best live music venues in the United States including the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO and Malibu Inn in Los Angeles. (Locally, The Pocket has also played DC's famous 9:30 Club, State Theatre in Falls Church, Iota Club and Cafe in Arlington, Jammin Java in Vienna, The National Cherry Blossom Festival and many more venues in the area.)

     The Pocket Band's acclaimed "Out of Many, One" album, mixed by Errol Brown (Bob Marley's main engineer), has seen international success. The three singles "Oceanside (Rooftop in Kingston)", "Steady" and "Lila Rose" quickly gained recognition and respect in Jamaica on both Irie FM and Zip in addition to college radio stations across the US. The Pocket Band is currently set to release their newest album very soon and plan to promote it worldwide.
