The Whiskey Pocket + Kyra Bee and the illegals

The Whiskey Pocket | 7.30pm

The Whiskey Pocket are a blues and rock outfit from WA who have established themselves as a cracking live act to see around Perth & Fremantle. They have been a band for close to 10 years and boast an eclectic mix of influences including – but definitely not limited to - Hendrix, Cream, Buddy Guy, the Black Keys and Tom Waits. Never one to shy away from a new musical challenge, lead vocalist and guitarist Darryn Foote wears his influences on his sleeve and is constantly pushing the band in new directions, successfully blending his love for old school dirty blues with a catchy, unique rock ‘n’ roll vibe. The Whiskey Pocket has a solid rhythm section consisting of long time member of The Ram Jets Angelo Armenti on drums and the ever-faithful Derek Cumpsty locking in the groove on the big Rickenbacker bass. In 2018 the band released their self-titled debut, all original, 7 track EP and in 2019 they were incredibly fortunate to secure the talents of Troy Cumpsty on lead guitar, a man whose immense set of skills is sure to push The Whiskey Pocket to greater heights.
