High-energy musicians from several genres melding elements of Rock, Rhythm & Blues, and Jazz (with a little Country & Western to Boot), Willie D & The Hip Pockets play infectious dance music with a nostalgic beat and old-school soul. Willie D sings and plays sax on the great honky-tonk and dance-hall classics that rocked jukeboxes of yesteryear, including hits by Fats Domino, Louis Armstrong, Willie Nelson, and Elvis Presley.
