Interview with Greg Ormont from PIGEONS PLAYING PING PONG #funk


Baltimore, Maryland’s Pigeons Playing Ping Pong want one thing… To F.U.N.K. After a wild introduction to the group in Syracuse, NY, where they opened a Valentine’s Day rager with the brilliant Joe Driscoll and 315-fan fav’s Sophistafunk, the energy and musicianship of these guys was undeniable. And with a name like that, it’s kinda hard not to pay attention.

Interview with Jeff Hershey from JEFF HERSHEY and THE HEARTBEATS; New covers EP and European Tour forthcoming! @jeffheartbeats #nomotiv


Jeff Hershey has worn many hats during his musical tenure. Some of you may know him from his metal days in Black Opal or Hybrid Moments. Others may recognize him as a core member of the wildly popular Vagrant Record’s act, No Motiv.

Interview with Jeff Lloyd from THE HEAVY PETS (@theheavypets)


The Heavy Pets rolled through Syracuse, NY again on September 19, and it’s always good to have the Floridian reggae/jam/rockers back in Upstate, NY. Their youthful energy is a great way to help bring in the weekend, even if it’s only Thursday. I’m always down to get things started a day early, and having T.H.P. here to provide the soundtrack suits me just fine.
