In 1988, vocalists Glenn Walters and Pamela Rose, having worked the regional concert circuit separately and together for many years, decided to join forces and form a dream party band. It would be fun, funky and soulful, playing the most danceable of songs from the 50s through the 80s.
Because both singers also had extensive jazz and swing backgrounds, they would be able to cover standards from the Sinatra/Nat King Cole era, and throw in a lively dash of jump swing as well. Since Rose and Walters both have earned great respect among Bay Area musicians, they had the luxury of pulling together a consistent lineup of the very finest musicians. They called the band Sidepocket.
Nominated twice for a Bay Area Music Award (Bammies), Pamela Rose has long been recognized for her ability to reach audiences and pull them out of their seats. Spending the early part of her career as a blues bandleader, Pamela then became a featured vocalist with the well-known Motown revue Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra.
