Press Releases, Reviews and Interviews
“The Saturday night party will get started with a big line up of live entertainment on the main stage. The Fonti Brothers, The Lyrical and Steel Syndicate will warm up the crowds, before Brisbane-based original funk band PocketLove takes to the stage at 7.10pm.
With regular gigs at some of Brisbane’s most popular music spots and performances at popular events including Woodford Folk Festival and Caloundra Music Festival, PocketLove is excited to be part of KiteFest After Dark.
With the fresh sound of lead singer Sharon Brooks, the band has been able to create a special fusion of rock, pop, reggae, soul and funk, sure to get festival-goers up from their seats and dancing.”
“Sharon Brooks, Pocketlove’s Barbadian lead singer, is otherworldly good. Her voice feeds her enthusiasm, which in turn seems to take strength from the driving inflections of her voice. Really good funk music, really funky funk music, makes a listener feel mildly obscene. Like watching a racy scene in a movie with your parents (something from ‘American Pie’ springs to mind), when listening to funk in a group scenario one’s sense of self-respect shrivels, not because the music is bad but because it is just so good there must be something pornographic and indecent about it. This is Pocketlove. “
Cause P is for PocketLove
Funk is one of my favourite genres. Here in Brisbane, we are lucky to have a number of original funk bands that gig regularly. One of these bands is PocketLove, who I came across at the Brisbane Festival in 2011. Describing themselves as funk / soul / R&B, there's been a line-up change since I first came across them, and Luke is now the lead singer, and frontman. PocketLove are an energetic six-piece outfit who deftly work their way through original tunes as well as old favourite funk and soul tunes, compelling the crowd to dance along. I have a copy of their 5-track EP Reload and love each and every track. They are in the final stages of a new release, and I'm looking forward the launch gig.
PocketLove have a regular Friday night gig at Press Club, alternating with Boss Cats. You can like PocketLove on Facebook here and listen to their music here.
“Pocketlove's drummer broke his arm a week ago but busted out a tambourine and a shaker and rocked out on stage for the full 20 minute set, they even had a brass section that really ripped the roof off! “
