Sauce Pocket: The Psychedelic Space Funk Grooves You Need

After seeing one of Sauce Pocket’s very first shows at No Resolutions (they were called Ancient Astroknauts at the time), we’ve heard great reports about the band and were excited to check them out at Orange Blossom Jamboree. No matter how great we hoped it would be, let’s just say we severely underestimated!

The start to Day 2 was as sweet as the start to Day 1 with a mind-blowing set of Psychedelic Space Funk from a new band out of Saint Augustine. The group formed in December and changed their name recently to Sauce Pocket. The band is now a quintet with the addition of saxophone player Jeremy Prince, who added a great new dimension to the band’s sound.

They eased in with a fine ballad highlighting the superb vocals of keyboard master Kaleb King; he was my favorite male singer of OBJ. Drummer Riley O’Brien then proceeded to march everyone through an ass-kicking set of outstanding jams. Logan Quick on guitar and Taylor Ivie on bass were awesome. Sauce Pocket will be a major presence on the scene.
