HIP POCKET BAND to Perform at Town Square Concert on August 19

When Hip Pocket shows up a party breaks out and the fun begins! Although they are not a beach band, they were named 2009 CBMA Award for Favorite New Artist. The group plays everything from Black Eyed Peas, Zac Brown, Josh Turner, Prince, Wild Cherry, George Michael, Keith Urban, Jackson 5, and Delbert McClinton.

They will perform this Thursday at the Town Square Concert Series from 7 pm – 9 pm. This will be the first Clayton appearance for the Hip Pocket Band.
