Corner Pocket is a versatile musical group specializing in intimate venues and special event music. Our repertoire consists of jazz standards, blues, R&B, soft rock classics and seasonal favourites.
We can provide ambiance music for your cocktail party, wedding reception, lounge or restaurant with a 2 or 3 piece instrumental group or for a more entertaining show we can add our vocalist. For larger venues or to get your guests dancing we can add a full rhythm section including bass, drums and additional horns.
The core of Corner Pocket consists of Paul Monné on electric guitar, Al Newhouse on Saxophone and Jamie Macdonald-Thompson on vocals. As a trio we have been performing together since 2006. Individually our musical experience spans the past 20 years.
Corner Pocket performs all of our music 100% live. In order to preserve the energy and spontaneity of live music we never use backing tracks or electronic rhythms while performing.
Corner Pocket would be pleased to perform for your event or establishment – our rates are reasonable and be sure to ask about preferred pricing for multiple bookings.
