The Pocket Symphony Orchestra began life in 2012 when Barry and Darren came together to
reignite a musical partnership which dates back to 1999. The music the band plays incorporates
the influences and experiences of all its members, but through the lens of the music which
formed the foundation of Barry and Darren’s friendship – intelligent, meaningful, emotional,
energetic, danceable rock music. Comparisons are often drawn to 90’s Brit-pop bands such as
Pulp, Blur, and Suede but with a contemporary twist.
TPSO headed into 2020 with a fresh line-up (Barry, Darren, Adam, Jake are joined by new
drummer Dave), full of energy, and with a list of exciting plans which were stalled like everyone
else’s... so the band are thrilled to be back together and back on stage, to make up for lost time from October.
Blur, Pulp, Suede, The Smiths, Counting Crows, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers
