ABOUT:

Pocket Protector's sound is piano, bass and drums instrumental trio.  We provide a blend of nice and soft, tastefully-performed classic tunes from the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70' and even a few popular current ballads. We mix in an up-tempo tune occasionally to make it interesting.  We are not a show or dance band, but simply provide a soothing, relaxing environment for dining, socializing  and dancing with friends and family.  Consider letting us make your special event even more special with timeless tunes that everyone enjoys.
