Set To Play
House Of Blues
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will make a stop in Cleveland on Friday, March 22nd for a performance at House of Blues. The high-energy funky four-piece hailing from Baltimore, MD has been touring the country relentlessly since the release of their 4th studio record, Pizazz, out now.
Blending infectious funk grooves, psychedelic jams, and experimental electronics, the Baltimore four-piece’s latest album is a buoyant, blissful reminder of just how much fun music can be. Eschewing the traditional funk band lineup that typically includes keyboards, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong constructs effervescent soundscapes with just two guitars, bass, and drums, crafting their music with a sophisticated ear for both open space and dense layering.
“We pour every ounce of ourselves into every note when we perform live,” says Pigeons Playing Ping Pong's frontman Greg Ormont. “When we’re recording in the studio, we try to maintain that euphoria while finding a way to pack it into a tight, focused vessel. Each song becomes like a spring-loaded can of worms: there’s all this energy boxed up in a neat little package, and then when you come see us live, the cap comes off and the contents fly out in every direction like fireworks.”
Whether it be an original tune from one of their four records, an inventive cover or an hour-long completely improvised set, there's no saying what the quartet will bust out when they take the stage.
