Scary Pockets Tour

Funk band Scary Pockets emerged in 2017 as a jam project for a couple of high school buddies, musician Ryan Lerman and Patreon co-founder and CEO Jack Conte. Lerman and Conte began brainstorming on ways they could create music together despite the distance between them when decided to meet up once a month in Los Angeles to record songs and catch up. With the help and support of local musicians in the LA area, the group would gather and record themselves jamming and hanging out – no frills, no arrangements, no pre-production. Their videos quickly gained traction with followers from across the internet tuning in each week, eventually going viral after their cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” garnered over 10 million views. Scary Pockets has grown to over 237,000 YouTube followers. They have gained over 40 million views since the project first began in February 2017.
