"There's alliteration and great sounds from this band billed as "4R music" of rap, reggae, rock, and R&B. Slimpocket - also described as six musicians with six different backgrounds - performs original music delivered by vocalist Jahganot, keyboardist Jeff Goldman, guitarist Goody, bassist Tom (a.k.a. 2%), drummer Saeed, and vocalist Rexi 45. On the band's website, Rexi's rap-style lyrics are described as calling out "the fraud and unrest of today's . . . politics of fear and lies." Let's check back with him in a few months to see if the new administration has changed his tune."

Hip Pocket

What do you get when you throw together a couple of rappers, a few heavy rockers and a pair of jazz musicians? Usually mayhem, but not in the case of Slimpocket, the local band on stage this Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Pickled Onion on Rantoul Street in Beverly.

Slimpocket is known for performances where they belt out 4R music: rap, reggae, R&B and rock. Less known for their humility, the band has advised fans to see them now in small local clubs before they hit the big time and tickets to a show cost will you more than a week's pay. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. For information, call the Pickled Onion at 978-232-3973. Or for a preview of the band visit www.slimpocket.com
