Empty Pockets performs songs of various genres - new country, classic country, classic rock and variety songs .  The band is always adding new songs to the setlist which is required to keep the band's sound fresh and updated.  With both male and female lead vocals, our music selection covers a wide variety of styles.  The setlists are made specifically for each type of event and below are our guidelines for various types of events.  The band owns professional sound equipment that is scalable for small to large, indoor or outdoor crowds of 50 to 1000 guests.   Please contact us if you have any questions about the band.


Corporate Events -   Dallas and Fort Worth hosts many corporate conventions each year and the convention crowds  always seem to enjoy the great Country Music in Texas.  Convention crowds consist of all ages (and musical tastes) so a typical setlist for a corporate event would be an equal mix of New Country , Classic Country and Classic Rock - something for everyone. The band knows to keep the volume under the conversation level during cocktail hour. As the night progresses,  we read the crowd and adjust the volume as needed.  Call us if you have questions about how we can help with your event.  


Weddings - For Brides and Grooms that like Country Music and want a band that can perform a wide variety of music to entertain all your guests, Empty Pockets is your band.  We work closely with the wedding party in selecting their special dance songs - Bride/Groom dance, Father/Daughter dance - and we have no problem learning a special song if we don't already have it in our playlist. For the reception music, we recommend a balanced setlist of New Country, Classic Country and Varietry/Classic Rock songs.  All the songs selected will have positive lyrics and upbeat tempos to support the occasion.  We are happy to work with our wedding clients to offer the perfect mix of  their favorite songs for this most special occasion.  References are available.
