Produced by: Darrell “DWaRf” Millar
Co-Produced by: Greg Looper is about as pure a good time rock ‘n’ roll band as you can find these days. They sound like a band you might hear playing in bar somewhere on a Saturday night (this is a compliment). The band’s official bio states they sound similar to Aerosmith, AC/DC and The Rolling Stones and that’s about right: has been influenced strongly by 70s/80s blues rock & Southern rock and I would even add they sound similar to Ted Nugent (especially Darrell “Dwarf” Millar’s vocals).

I don’t drink, but if I did, I imagine this in album I would do it to while sitting on a porch somewhere with my dog at my side and my woman on my lap. Just like the best women, Pocket Change is fun, fast, and loose.

BTW – If Darrell Millar’s name sounds familiar, it should– he’s also the drummer for Killer Dwarfs.

Highlights: “Back In The Sun”, “Dig In Deep”, “One Half Hard”, “Give An Inch, Take A Mile”, Chasin’ My Tail”, “Drivin’, Rockin’, Lovin'”
