Just wanted to tell you The Band was fantastic at the Milholen wedding!!!!! Our guests said "It was the best reception ever!" I n the Pocket had a whole lot to do with that. We wanted it to be a wonderful party and it was thanks to the band. Sidney said it was all she had hoped for and more! Please let all the members know how happy we were with their performance and for making our reception a extraordinary celebration.

Larry, Can you imagine my surprise and DELIGHT when I saw you at the keyboard on Saturday? Laura and Sean chose In the Pocket based on the music they listened to on EastCoast's website. I was expecting a wonderful evening, but would not have guessed how fabulous your band would be. I can still hear Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" playing as we were greeting guests early in the evening.

Thank you, Larry, and your super cool band, for providing the perfect music for a fun celebration. I wish we could have that much fun every weekend!

In The Pocket was wonderful! They kept us on the dance floor and were very kind and accommodating. They even allowed my brother, Bill, to sit in on drums (I had a prior conversation with them about that). Very special. The bride and groom appreciated that they could mix "recorded" music for their dances with live music for the rest of the evening. Again, fun was had by all.

We heard rave reviews from younger and older guests alike that the band was "awesome"... We think having the second vocalist really added to the mix. We hope that our guests will book them in the future. (I gave them and EastCoast a shout out on my Facebook page last week).

So in a nutshell, we could not have been more pleased!

Ellen M.


We worked with EastCoast Entertainment, specifically Barry Herndon and couldn't be more pleased! He listened and guided us to book the perfect band for our daughter's wedding reception-IN THE POCKET. Barry and the band members listened to our requests and customized their performance to work with them. Their performance kept young and young at heart alike on the dance floor the entire evening. Our guests had a great time and have told us that the band was awesome. We are sure having IN THE POCKET helped create a memorable evening for our daughter, her new husband and all of our guests! We highly recommend EastCoast Entertainment and IN THE POCKET Band!

Ellen M.


In The Pocket was fabulous!!!  They were exactly what my daughter and her husband were looking for....everyone was talking about them the next day!!!  Thanks for your help in securing them, we were definitely not disappointed!

I would not hesitate to recommend you or ITP to any of my friends.  Have a great summer.

I cannot thank you enough for your incredible,magnificent performance Saturday night. People are STILL talking about your band. You were everything I had hoped you would be for Nicole's wedding. It was a party and you made sure of it!  You song selections were fabulous. There was something for everyone. Honestly, if you didn't have a good time it was your own fault. 

What a treat Larry, to look up and see you there. I had no idea. Then to have your partner be "the wedding crasher" what a story, forever.

Mother of the Groom

They were fantastic! We had a BAll, Robin Springer and Bobby and Rhonda Etc were all so super fantastic; way beyond our expectations. They were the best band ever and our guests raved about them. Please let them know that the wedding ceremony, cocktail reception, and wedding reception were all too/to perfection. We can't thank them enough and we feel like they are our friends as well. Please thank them for us, we LOVED their music as they are so incredibly talented. We had so many compliments also for the wedding ceremony beginning at 6:40. Robin's Lord's Prayer and Amazing GrAce were so spiritual and gospel as we had hoped--surely The Lord was with us as we married these two precious people. A very heart-felt thanks to ECE and in the pocket band!! An unforgettable magical experience, thank you thank you Bobby, Robin and Rhonda and band members and Ellie xoxoxo

First of all thank you so much for recommending this band. They were everything you said and more. We have gotten rave reviews from people who attended. They were on time, personal, and very talented. They were truly one of my favorite parts of the wedding. I would recommend them to anyone and we would definitely have them again if we ever have another big event. One of the highlights was the lead singer’s son singing the “Happy” song. He stole the show.


Thank you so much!!!

Father of the Bride

You guys helped make my daughter's wedding very successful and memorable. Your band is great! We listened to tapes of 5 bands and chose yours to play at my daughter's wedding. We had a large wedding with over 500 people. Everyone, and I mean everyone, enjoyed your group. Even the most critical guests were blown away, not only by how well you guys played, but also your music selection. I would not hesitate for even a second to hire your group again for any function in which I am involved. At least 20 people asked about your band to possibly book for their own purposes. We are so glad In The Pocket played for us.

Can't believe I haven't emailed you yet! The band was absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much for helping us! They played the perfect blend of songs and had us dancing all night! Would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone else getting married! Again, thank you and please tell them we absolutely loved having them be a part of our wedding day!

Parents of the Bride

Thank you to the band, "In The Pocket!" Our wedding was absolutely so complete and wonderful and exciting because of you and your fabulous music! Our guest are still talking about how great your sound is and was October 12, 2013! There was a tune for every age and we had folks from 3 - 88. You will most definitely be hearing from us again and we can't wait to share your name with everyone we meet! Look forward to working with you again!

Very happy parents of the Bride,

Bride & Groom

First let me say how impressed Jenn and I were with In the Pocket. The band and its performance was everything we had wished. Your band made our special day even more special. Jenn and I give the band an overall rating of Excellent. Everything about the band was great - professionalism, timeliness, sound, and flexibility. With regard to the flexibility aspect, Jenn and I were extremely thankful for accepting your offer and suggestion of playing outside during dinner. As you know, originally we were concerned of having the band playing from the inside while our guests were outside under the tent. Well, you guys pulled this off and we thought it started the night off perfectly and it only got better once the band moved inside. I know it's good to hear constructive criticism on how you can improve upon things but we really can't offer anything. We would definitely recommend In the Pocket to our friends and family. In fact, we have already been contacted as a reference. Good luck to the band and thanks again for being a part of our special day.

Corporate Event

The band’s performance was excellent! The song selection was great, and their breaks were short. The band members are not only talented singers and musicians; they have a wonderful stage presence! They had everyone dancing all night. Thank you again for your help in making our party a success! I look forward to working with you again next year.

Private Party

First of all, I wanted to tell you it was a pleasure meeting you and the other members of In The Pocket. We thoroughly enjoyed having you all there with us. I've received a great deal of feedback, all of it positive. Some comments, and I quote, "interactive, very talented, great variety of songs, great band, best band we've ever had . . . " I think you get the idea. I've copied below a comment from one of our Anderson office employees which I think sums it up nicely: "Was fabulous as always, thanks again for all of your hard work and preparation. Dean (my husband) tries to be a musical critic and he was very impressed with the band. He has to get up @ 3:30 every am to go to work and said as we were headed out the door on Friday evening, "You know I am tired and we aren't going to stay until 11:00." Well, we were in the lobby leaving as the band was playing "Last Dance." Thank you for helping make our party fun and enjoyable for everyone!

Was fabulous as always, thanks again for all of your hard work and preparation. My husband Dean tries to be a musical critic and he was very impressed with the band. He has to get up @ 3:30 every am to go to work and said as we were headed out the door on Friday evening, 'You know I am tired and we aren't going to stay until 11:00.' Well, we ended up in the lobby leaving as the band was playing 'Last Dance' at 11

Your band In The Pocket was terrific Saturday night! I was very impressed. Thank you.

I arrived during "At Last" and stayed for about 45 minuets of In The Pocket's set. I got to see a great cross-section of both slow dance numbers and party tunes. They were really great. The female lead vocalist was phenomenal as was the lead male vocalist, who was totally on-point from everything from "Carolina Girls" to "Kiss." ...a great touch of enthusiasm and energy. Since the wedding photos ran late, and therefore everything else also ran late, In The Pocket started late. Instead of taking normal breaks, In The Pocket took the initiative to play a non-stop show after the dinner set. Totally made up for lost time, and made both planner and clients happy.

The band InThePocket was perfect, especially their last set. The dance floor was packed at the end of the evening. We could not have been more pleased. Many thanks! Many thanks for all of your help.

Thank you for the opportunity to share. The band was WONDERFUL!! I can't express how many positive comments we received about them. On an even more personal note, I greatly appreciated Bobby. He allowed me to drop by his recording studio and practice singing Etta James "At Last." We surprised everyone at the reception with a solo to my husband. It was such a special moment, and a gift for Bobby and the band to allow me to do it.
They had the perfect mix of songs. In addition, Bobby mixed 2 songs together for my Dad and me which we took dance lessons to. (Same for me and my husband). What a n opportunity to do choreographed dances to live music! I can't say enough about In the Pocket. They contributed to making our wedding a tremendous weekend!
