A big thanks to all of the musicians and music lovers who joined us to make the 2023 Wine and Jazz series at Shelburne Vineyard a huge success! We will be returning on Feb 11, 2024 with more great featured musicians and unique combos from Vermont and beyond.  The shows are 6 to 8:15 on Sunday nights in the loft at Shelburne Vineyard. Admission is free but reservations are recommended.  Hope to see you there!

Welcome to In the Pocket! We are a 6-piece jazz band based in Burlington, Vermont playing jazz and blues standards from the 30's to the modern era. With our vocalist Taryn Noelle, we cover a broad range of classics from bands like Pink Martini to songs made famous by Sinatra, Bennett, Ellington and other legends. We're a perfect fit for all types of events: concerts, dances, parties, annual meetings, fundraisers, weddings, banquets, corporate events, and festivals. We have a blast playing for audiences of all ages, and are not satisfied until everybody is up and dancing! We'd love to share our talents and love for jazz with you to make your event fun and memorable.

In the Pocket brings together a diverse group of musicians: 

  • Taryn Noelle - Vocals
  • George Voland - Valve Trombone

We are also able to "slim down" to fit any setting. So give a listen and then drop us a line!

My husband and I booked In the Pocket for our wedding, and were blown away by how easy they were to work with, how professional they are, and their great performance. They did a wonderful job, and really set the whole tone for the wedding -- cool, classy, and great dancing music! We would book them again if we could find any excuse!”
