Interview with Greg Ormont from PIGEONS PLAYING PING PONG #funk

pigeons

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.

The NYC subway system… It’s more than just turnstiles, rats, and fear of homicide.

In my 3 years as an NYC resident, no act made me turn my head, or shake my butt, more than Moon Hooch.

Interview with John and Gabriel from Consider The Source. Playing @CatskillChill next weekend!

“Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Funk, ” as New York City’s Consider The Source describe themselves, kind of makes me think about Bootsy Collins riding on the Millenium Falcon hovering over Saudi Arabia. Seriously though, can’t you just visualize it? Maybe not, but if a power trio takes this much effort to define their sound, I can only imagine what their rehearsals are like. I’m sold.

Consider The Source’s mystique lie in their multi-directional approach to writing, a fusion of complex rhythmic patterns, partially learned when the group spent time studying talas in India, with a blend of driving rock, psychedelic sound scapes, and Middle Eastern flair. The group continues to forge their path into the musical spotlight, performing at a very wide array of venues and festivals all over the world. These appearances include slots at Burning Man, PowWow, and Dogwood Fests alongside such acts as Victor Wooten, Wyclef Jean, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, and many others. Read More…
