2017 - 2021
POCKiT is a multicultural power trio from South Florida driven to produce the best musical experience to any music lover. The band's fresh approach of Funk, Latin-Fusion and Jazz has caught attention in the South Florida music scene for their tight groove and solid musicianship in every performance.
The band first single “Driving Out” plays a groovy four on the floor beat driven along a "space bass romp by Spencer" as described by Musicfestnews.com, which makes room to jazz-fusion solo improvisations led by Gardner and Zambrano. “Broken Funk”, their second single, mixes a bluesy syncopated guitar riff in combination with hard-swing funk groove. These two releases feature Rodrigo Zambrano from Electric Kif on the electric guitar.
In 2019, the band recorded a third single called "Hialeah Traffic" which blends a hip walking drum & bass groove along a funky melody line by Gardner. POCKiT's most recent collaboration "Chicle 2.0" along with Claudio Roncoli (2017-2018 Grammy Winner Artist) and the DeMarco Project holds the band's unique "pocket" groove foundation and highlights their fresh improvisational sound.
