Event description
"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

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong brings end-of-the-world enthusiasm to their high-energy psychedelic funk. Their infectious electro-funk grooves, undeniable live energy and contagious smiles have their rabid fanbase "the Flock" growing exponentially. Based out of Baltimore, MD, this animated quartet has been scorching up the country with their explosive performances and danceable peaks... and they're loving every minute of it!

"These guys may be a little nuts, but they are extremely passionate about what they do."
Evan Marks, GratfeulWeb.com

Organ Freeman:
Like many bands comprised of tight-laced musicianship, Organ Freeman emerged from the Hollywood music scene wasting no time. Steer explains that the group “initially formed the group as more of an opportunity to experiment than a serious project while we were all students, and continued on as a creative outlet while we all played out as freelance musicians. It wasn’t until years later when we were presented with the chance to do a record that the band sort of morphed into what it is today.”

There’s this undeniable synergy that takes hold when you put on the Organ Freeman debut album. From one funk groove to the next, it’s a toe-tapping odyssey from start to finish. The band’s influences belie their sound, as they cite the tightest of groovers. James Brown, Soulive, Snarky Puppy, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Smith, D’Angelo are all mentioned at the drop of a hat, showcasing this band’s pure devotion to that in-the-pocket jam.


For fans of the Organ Freeman funk, fear not. The band also has a new record in the works, one that will be out “by early 2017” if all goes to plan.

“Playing new material live is a big part of our tweaking process, so we’ll be using whatever opportunities we have to try out the new tunes,” explains Steer. “Overall, stylistically, the record will definitely fit in with the first record, but we have gotten better and more meticulous about our sounds and our arrangement.”

The future is bright for Organ Freeman, as they continue to turn heads in a big way. As more artists and fans take note of the band’s style, there’s no limit to their potential.
