The vision for Deep Pocket Thieves (DPT) started in 2015 among friends from the local blues and music scene in Colorado.  Members of DPT came together as individuals to discuss creative ideas for new original music while playing and performing in several other local projects.  Each member brought a unique but complimentary creative piece to complete a picture that would eventually be the Deep Pocket Thieves.  After some improvisational sessions and some collaborative writing sessions, new original music and a new original band was formed.  

The Deep Pocket Thieves is a collaboration of friends that are veteran musicians in Colorado.  The band offers new music that blends the rootsy and emotive styles of the blues, jazz, funk, rock and roll, and gospel music.  The Music of DPT is a sonic synthesis of the unique personalities and backgrounds of each member.
