“These guys may be a little nuts, but they are extremely passionate
about what they do.”

-Evan Marks, GratfeulWeb.com

“When you attend a Pigeons show, be prepared to get sucked in; whether
it’s due to Jeremy Schon’s fluid guitar skills, Ben Carrey’s steady
bass, Dan Schwartz’s playful personality on the drums, or lead
vocalist and pedal-devil Greg Ormont’s seductively strong vocals—the
group’s magnetic presence ensures you won’t look away—not even if you
want to.”

-Becca Boo Cranwell, Appalachian Jamwich

“Sometimes a festival is judged successful because a lesser-known band
steals the show and becomes your highlight. Unfortunately, there are
actually people naive enough to skip on catching this exemplary jam
act because they don’t initially like the name. What some may see as
gimmicks are actually creative expressions of superior showmanship.”

“The grooves and heavy guitar riffs are reminiscent of early Spin
Doctors, but with clever lyrics, tightly constructed and complicated
melodic structures and relentlessly addictive noodling from Schon.”

–Chadbyrne Dickens, Jambase

“No matter what genre of feel-good music they’re playing, the passion
and the energy is noticed and is always transferred to the audience,
who can also drop their worries and get lost in the music.”

-Lacey Palmer, The Daily Athenaeum

————————————————————————————————-

“Pigeons Playing Ping Pong have developed a unique live formula that
seamlessly balances the band’s patented electro-funk style, without
losing a refreshingly loose, “lets party” attitude.”

-Dan Vizzard, The Vibe Online

“When it comes to putting on a show, the Pigeons get it.”

“They have the tightness of a band that plays together a lot, and the
flexibility of a band that is constantly trying to push themselves to
new levels.”

-Scott Paddock, Mobtown Music Guide
