The Dusty Pockets tell meaningful stories, delivered with grit, wrapped in beautiful melodies and driven by powerful grooves. Their self-invented genre, “recreational Americana,” is indicative of the band’s mission to make seriously good music and have fun at the same time.
Their debut release, “Hard Line,” is a ten-song album that cherry-picks from the band's wide and growing catalog of original songs. Centered on a strong foundation of American musical traditions, "Hard Line," and the band's live shows, showcase a collection of tunes that scratch the itch for twang, soul, and rock'n'roll all at once.
The Dusty Pockets are Dave Walther (guitar and vocals), Matt Rogers (guitar), Garret Rhinard (keys), John Alex Griffith (bass and vocals), and Joe Sheehan (drums and vocals).
Eric Funk, producer of the Emmy-award winning PBS show, 11th and Grant, describes Dave's "timeless voice" and The Dusty Pockets as: "old blues, rock-inspired, jazz-infused."
