Have I ever told you guys about this place in Asheville called The Salvage Station? I feel like I have and, I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but man do those guys know how to throw a party.
I mean unless hanging out down by the French Broad River with a beer in your hand and the best music touring the country isn’t really your thing. In that case perhaps I could interest you in a board game or something.
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, not only are they full of funk and spunk, but they are also one of the fastest growing Jam Bands today. Promoting their new album “Pizazz”, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong kicked off their rather large tour at the Boulder Theater last night, October 6th. All of their fans, or as they like to call, their “Flock”, migrated into the theater for what they didn’t know was going to be one epic dance party.
Carrying the torch of the great funk bands such as Tower of Power, Sly and the Family Stone, and James Brown into the 21st century, comes Deep Banana Blackout. With full horn section, and soulful groove imbedded in the roots of funk, Deep Banana is the leader of today's emerging funk rock scene. The band's sound captures commercial accessibility augmented with tight musical arrangements and limited improvisation. But make no mistake- THIS BAND ROCKS! Their incessant touring and high-energy performances demonstrate the deep love, respect, and enthusiasm the members have for what they do.
