Pickpocket 'Sojourn' Launch with Lake Minnetonka & Yarra Banks (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.00PM

The story of ‘Sojourn’ - the highly anticipated debut album from 8 piece funk/fusion outfit Pickpocket, is somewhat of an epic tale. Written by bandleader and bass player Craig Strain over the span of 10 years and 3 continents, it culminated in Melbourne at the end of 2015 when the band finally entered the studio to begin the recording process. Taking listeners on a journey from 70’s inspired ‘ghetto grooves’ to modern neo soul swagger, ‘Sojourn’ manages to tread a fine line between feel good funk music and honest artistic expression. Choosing to launch the album at the Gasometer Hotel on Sunday 25th September, Pickpocket will be joined by fellow funksters Lake Minnetonka and jam band extraordinaire Yarra Banks for what is set to be a night of deep grooves and exciting improvisation.
