After almost 3 years and well over 100 shows, answering the question "Who Is In The Pocket?" is easy: In The Pocket is the Hudson Valley's top rock & soul cover band. How do we know this? Well, you could talk to the fans who keep going to see them, the venues that keep having them back, or the couples who have had them as part of their wedding. Or you could simply look at the fact that they were recently voted "Best Local Musician" in Hudson Valley Magazine's Best of Hudson Valley 2013 contest. ITP is not your average cover band. Featuring some of the area's best young musicians who can quickly and easily slip from one genre to the next, many members of ITP are artists, composers, and songwriters themselves. With a full-time horn section and an emphasis on real players playing real instruments, In The Pocket carefully selects its songs to make sure there are no "fillers." In fact, by only playing music that excites them it ensures that the band is having just as much fun as the audience when they move through songs by Bruno Mars, Sam & Dave, Bruce Springsteen, The Police, Huey Lewis & the News, Maroon 5, Billy Joel, and much, much more!
An ever-growing song list from the 1960s to today, a tight sound, and an on-stage camaraderie that's hard to find in even the most successful original bands - the choice is clear: you can get some other band, or you can get In The Pocket.
