The original Pocket Band was composed of Rick Shlosser, drums and percussion, Zeke Zirngeibel, lead guitar, and Cliff Hugo bass guitar Of course these players are all highly accomplished musicians in their own right as you can see from their bios in the musical friends area of the site Stephen Barncard introduced Joel to Zeke Cliff and Rick during preproduction for his first solo album Sideshow and they’ve been playing together in one form or another ever since Terry Lesperance replaced Rick on drums and percussion, and Rick Solem joined the band on keyboards, helping the Pocket Band provide star studded musical power for RJFOX projects and Joel‘s CDs And now you can hear them really lay it all on the line on Joel‘s brand new CD on Pink Hotel
