Article Contributed by Greg Knight | Published on Tuesday, November 9, 2021

Baltimore-based quartet Pigeons Playing Ping Pong plans to bring its unique blend of vivacious, high-octane funk to a city near you this winter. Starting in mid-January, PPPP will traverse the country, making eighteen stops at legendary theatres and ballrooms. Following a pair of shows at The Fillmore in Philadelphia (1/14-15), the funky foursome will flock to the midwest for a trio of shows in Grand Rapids, Cleveland, and Chicago (2/10-12). The start of March will see the bodacious birds touch down in Texas, visiting Houston, Dallas, and Austin (3/3-5). 

After a two-night swing through Arizona, visiting Phoenix (3/8) and Flagstaff (3/9), P4 lands in the Golden State for plays in San Diego, LA, and Berkeley (3/10-12). Tour concludes with a return to the Pacific Northwest, seeing the band play in Crystal Bay, Bend, Portland, and twice in Seattle (3/17-20). 

“The energy on our Fall Tour has been absolutely off the charts,” said singer/guitarist “Scrambled Greg” Ormont. “We’ve all been waiting so patiently for the return of live music, and now that it’s here, all bets are off. I can’t wait to experience this epic revival from coast-to-coast all winter long.”

An eclectic mix of established artists will support Pigeons on this tour, including TAUK (3/10-12), and ElephantProof (1/14). Bass virtuoso Karina Rykman will join the tour on 3/3 and play all remaining dates.
