JAY MARTINI

Doug James and The Pocket are excited to announce the addition of Jay Martini on keyboards and Cleveland Taylor on drums to our 2016 line-up. These 2 musicians bring the flavor and the funk, and we're looking forward to a great future with new songs and renewed energy! Check the SHOWS page for upcoming gigs in 2016!

CLEVELAND TAYLOR

CLEVELAND TAYLOR

You Probably Want to know who we are right?

 

We make music that matters to us - part Blues, part Funk, part R&B, part Rock. We play real loose with the proportions, though.

 

 
 

In 2010, former Chicago Radio DJ Doug James recruited a veteran band of Chicago musicians to form Doug James and The Pocket. Since then we’ve been tearing through Chicagoland with shows at The House of Blues, Buddy Guy’s Legends, Hard Rock Cafe, The Store, Harlem Ave Lounge, Reggies, Chicago Blues Fest, Ribfest and other venues. We captured our energy in our CD “Leg Up,” available thru download on iTunes and all other forms of social media.

You can get your hands on an actual CD thru CD Baby and Bandcamp, or pick one up the old-school way - at a gig. We’ve gained fans from all over the world thanks to Jango and Spotify and appeared on WGN-TV’s Friday Midday Music Show. We’re also frequent guests on the Hambone Blues Radio Show on WCDB 90.9FM.
