MUSIC IN THE PODIUM  MT POCKETS - Friday 14 March 2014 6:00:00 pm


Tony Johns and Emil Matla

These two fine entertainers decided to pool their wealth of talent in 1998 and have been

playing the Hotel and Club Circuits around the Hunter Valley since early 1999.

The result is a repertoire covering songs from the 1950's through to the present featuring hits from artists such as Buddy Hollie, Elvis, The Beetles, The Eagles, Neil Diamond, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, John Cougar, The Angels, Kenny Rogers, Garth Brookes, Paul Kelly, Eric Clapton,............and the list goes on.

The styles of music range from rock'n'roll to country to blues and ballads and back to rock.

Apart from the high quality of music this pair produces a visual appeal to the act, with the aid of radio microphone equipment; the two men wander through the crowd while performing. Emil has developed quite a crooner’s style; whilst he's no John Travolta it's still a novelty to have a dance with the singer while he's performing the song!                          

Many musicians combine talents. The success of their venture depends on whether there is magic produced when they perform.


M.T.Pockets has that magic!
