New Video from In the Pocket - "You Can't Sit Down"

New video from In the Pocket: "You Can't Sit Down" featuring Jerry Blavat, members of @thehooters, Tommy Conwell and more at songsinthepocket.org. A portion of the proceeds benefits Settlement Music School.

Wow. The 80's. When DJ Caterina discovered the music of the Hooters as a youngster in Texas. And the Hooters introduced DJ Caterina to Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers. Worlds collide!
      Check out the video for the making of You Can't Sit Down and be sure to purchase the song on iTunes or Amazon!
