Where funk meets soul and love meets grit, the powerful vocal stylings of Jairo Vargas, aka Rojai (Row-Juh), merge elements to produce a raw soulful sound as distinct and unique as the San Francisco streets that bred him. Rojai is the leader & vocalist for the widely recognized and highly acclaimed San Francisco bands Bayonics, The Pocket (formerly Hot Pocket), and Starship Connection. Rojai, a seasoned artist, does what he does best by channeling a sixth sense that only he holds, to move crowds with consistent passion, energy & emotion.

The Pocket is the rhythm section for Bayonics. They have performed as a backing band for many notable artists such as: Eric Roberson, Anthony David, Al B Sure, Jaguar Wright, Lady Alma, Yahzarah, China Blac, and Big Brooklyn Red.

The Pocket performs as a quintet or quartet and has a large diverse repertoire of classic tunes spanning across genres including Hip Hop, Funk, Reggae, Soul, Rock, Dance, and Latin. Hot Pocket performs at many San Francisco music venues, clubs, bars, festivals as well as weddings and other private events.
