They are the Brisbane based original funk outfit, taking Australia by storm.
Introducing Pocketlove! And like the name suggests, this six piece band does nothing but put the love of funk into your pockets.
With their mix of Bombastic rhythms, searing guitars, angelic horns and anthemic party lyrics, Pocketlove are the pyromaniacs responsible for rekindling the raging fire of live funky music that has swept throughout Brisbane these last 5 years. Their residencies at hot spots such as The Press Club, Brooklyn Standard and the prestigious mega club Cloudland, have dragged people from their couches to wearing out dance floors and vocal chords wherever they perform.
Over the last 5 years years Pocketlove have secured amazing opportunities such as rocking the main stage alongside major acts Tower of Power, Empire of the Sun and Eskimo Joe at the 2011 Caloundra Music Festival and in 2012 playing the main stage of the Noosa Food and Wine Festival supporting Anthony Callea. 2013 proved to be just as fruitful with their original song song ‘Till the love is gone’ being played by ex member Luke Kennedy on the national prime time television series The Voice and topping at number 4 on the Australian iTunes Charts.
In 2014 PocketLove ignited the main stage of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers Festival and released their latest studio single to coincide with their debut performance’s at the illustrious Woodford Folk Festival.
With the fresh sound of lead singer Sharon Brooks at the helm, the band has been able to create a unique nuclear fusion of rock, pop, reggae, soul and funk. In 2015, the band released their first official music video “Sweet Georgia Brown”. 2016 was a more quiet year for the band as they headed back into studio, working on their upcoming second album. And boy are we waiting!
