• Back Pocket Band – New Software Tool For Musicians

    in Technology

    What if you could turn your computer into a complete practicing machine?

    What if you could pull a real-sounding band out your “back pocket?” (…so to speak).

    Sounds crazy but with the power of technology, I’m going to show you how to finally make practicing fun, productive, and effective.

    (I only wish I had this little magic tool when I was young!)

    I call it “Back Pocket Band” because it literally puts a band at your fingertips.

    I’ve put together a full video demonstration at: https://www.hearandplaymedia.com/backpocketband

    Here’s what it does:

    * It gives you access to over 350 real-sounding backing tracks.

    * Practice and live performance files are played in all 12 keys.

    * You can choose between multiple speeds: slow, medium, and fast.

    * 3 different sections, 9 styles of music, & drums-only option.

    * Instant streaming playback and automatic downloading to your system for burning to cd, transfer to ipod, and editing.

    * And much more…

    For a limited time, I’m making you an unbeatable deal on everything.

    Once you get your hands on this, you’ll see why so many are excited about it.

    2 Susan Williams

    I purchased Back Pocket Band today, but, didn’t receive any link to download anything and no one is available to help. I want to use it this weekend. Please advise.


    3 Jermaine Griggs

    Susan, I have replied to you. Please check e-mail. I believe our e-mail was wrong.

    Want to know if using the software, we can control the progressions just like keyboard accompaniments allow us to?

    Will it also be possible to include if not already there, the ability to mute various tracks such as taking out the drum kicks, or the bass.


    5 Edward Yebuah

    Hi Jermaine, is there a reason why this post has been skipped on replies? I would kindly appreciate to be told so and advised if my question was irrelevant. I however asked this question because in the video presentation I came across the statements: “Don’t have a bass player at your church? – Let Back Pocket Band be your bass player”…… – Was this to suggest I can use the software with the bass at church during praises? if so how easy can I follow the progressions when we sing? I play in a church without a drummer nor a bass player- Sorry but please help me out maybe I do not understand the concept


    6 Jermaine Griggs

    Under praise, we have 3 styles. 100s of songs follow these 3 styles.

    For example praise 1 is songs like God is a good god, Have you Tried jesus, I get joy when I think about, and dozens more.

    Praise 2 is like Bless that Wonderful name of jesus, Can’t nobody do me like Jesus.

    They’d have to be songs that follow whatever the style does of course. For shouting, you can use any of the styles.

    It can’t be used for “any” song but rather any place you find it suitable.

    The drum loops we just added can be used almost anywhere that follows those drum patterns.



    7 Jermaine Griggs

    Hey Edward, no they are backing tracks and fully made. Pretty much, you have them in all 12 keys and at 3 tempos. You can download the files and manipulate them anyway you want (in other programs or our song robot) but for the most part, what you see is what you get. We do include midi files for you to learn the progressions in a program of your choice (like song robot).


    8 Edward Yebuah

    Great thanks, I appreciate your response.


    9 Ade

    how can i actually contact your office on phone?


    10 Jermaine Griggs

    11 steve

    12 Jermaine Griggs

    I ordered and downloaded backpocketband. I am using a Mac G5 with dual processors. I have not been able to install it. It keeps giving me a validation error. Does anyone have any ideas to fix this problem? I really liked the video and want to use this program.


    14 Jermaine Griggs

    What is your version of OS? Can you go to ABOUT THIS MAC (under the apple in the upper left) and paste this information? Thank you.


    15 Jermaine Griggs

    Reggie, if you log into the digital center at http://www.hearandplay.com/digitalcenter we have now added an osx 10.4x installation file. This will work for older versions of mac osx.


    16 sterling

    Hello Jermaine, Thanks for this great software which i beliv will transform our rehearsal sessions. was just wondering if it could be possible to synchronise the SONG ROBOT and the BACK POCKET BAND to play so one can view on the SONG ROBOT how the chords from the MIDI files exactly fit in with the drums and bassline.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.


    17 Judi

    I went to look at gospel first but am also interested in blues. I wanted to see that video as well but when tried to see blues it automatically takes me to gospel again. Could you please show me the blues video too.


    18 Brian

    Hi I have a question pertaining to the comment left by Reggie. I too have a MAC G5 and was wondering what the issue was for his computer because I would love to purchase this program. Exactly what version am I going to need in order to run this on my MAC?


    19 Jermaine Griggs

    We have since added a version for mac osx 10.4x. When you log in to download your purchase, you’ll see two different installation files for mac. Pick the older 10.4x and you’re good to go!

    Hi Jermaine
    I sent an e-mail a couple of days ago asking if there were alternative ways to make payments, as I would like to purchase Back Pocket Band, but as a non-native living in Germany, I am not entitled to a credit card, only a regular bank card. Is it possible to pay online using my debit card? I am so desperate to get my hands on this fantastic resource!
    Hope you can advise me on this.

    Many thanks and God bless.


    23 Jermaine Griggs

    Hi John, please visit http://www.hearandplay.com/orderbpb

    All the best,

    Clips are not playing in Back Pocket Band in Win 7.


    25 David

    Hi Jermaine,

    As a long time customer, I’m gald you created BPB but I have one concern. The tracks sound fantastic but the program is restricted to practicing scales and melodic lines.
    Because the bass is playing its own patterns, the chords have to be figured out to coincide with the bass line. If I choose a track in the key of F and I play a Dm7(VI) in F in my left hand on a Bb note played by the bass, it’s going to sound like a BM9 chord instead of the natural Dm7 sound or Gm7(II) in F on an A note by the bass it will sound like A7b9b13 chord. I think that’s why most of these programs have the ability to harmonize the tracks with the chords that you play. Anyway, just an opinion for consideration


    26 Edward Yebuah

    Thanks Dave, you came up with exactly what I have had in mind. I believe this ability will make it easy to use as backing when playing in a church service without a bass player for example right? That way the bass follows after the chords being played I guess


    27 Ric

    This is really helpful software, I was wondering is there any chance or is it even possible to add any songs from the GMTC to practice along with?


    28 ray

    is the shout backing track from jason whites ministry muscians course in back pocket band. and are the midi chords with it as well


    29 Ronelle

    i have downloaded the program but when i open the pocket band there are no icons on the left hand side as you have shown in your video… Please help me and tell me what i have done wrong? Thanks


    30 Kirk Jackson

    I have purchased a visa card to be used on-line to purchase BPB, after several attempts your invoice site would decline my card; my card did work on other sites. I would have purchased this software but I couldn’t listen to another 10 min advertisement. What happened?


    31 Jermaine Griggs

    You need to personalize the visa card with your billing address. You can do this by following the instructions and registering your card. once you have an address attached to it, it will work at our site. You can order directly at http://www.hearandplay.com/orderbpb


    32 kenny

    33 Jermaine Griggs

    Yes, it is.
