Hip Pocket plays David Sanborn feat. Dawn Pemberton & Mike Henry
Guilt & Co
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8
Doors 7pm/Show 9:30pm
The ’70’s and ’80’s contained a wealth of great songs, some of which are well known and others that remain hidden gems and deep cuts. It was also an era of music that often included sax solos which raised the energy of these songs to the next level. Hip Pocket will be performing songs that alto saxophonist David Sanborn played on by artists such as David Bowie (“Young Americans”), Stevie Wonder (“Tuesday Heartbreak”), James Taylor (“How Sweet It Is”), Linda Ronstadt (“Oh Baby Baby”), Carly Simon (“You Belong To Me”) and Kenny Loggins (“Heart To Heart”) to name but a few. The group will also perform some instrumentals as well as songs with vocals that appeared on David Sanborn albums including familiar Rhythm & Blues and Soul tunes by Ray Charles and Al Green. Get ready for some seriously soulful and funky old school R&B!

“Architecture is like music but less ephemeral, it is like poetry but more precise. All of this is because we want to feel and make others feel. It is the part of our lives that we offer to others.” – Carme Pigem
