Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
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.
