Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

Hailed as “musical explorers” by Rolling Stone, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong first took flight roughly a decade ago at the University of Maryland, and the pysch-funk trailblazers have since gone on to play more than a thousand shows across 44 states. In just the past two years alone, the band has co-billed at Red Rocks, played halftime at Madison Square Garden, performed on Adult Swim’s FishCenter Live, celebrated the tenth anniversary of their beloved music festival, Domefest, and even earned their first headlining arena show. The Baltimore quartet’s latest album, ‘Presto,’ is their most sophisticated and joyful collection to date, drawing on everything from funk to rock to electronic music as it builds off the group’s unparalleled live energy and hits new heights of emotional and technical maturity. At a time when America seems to grow more divided by the day, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong still believes in the power of music to bring people together, and ‘Presto’ is a big, bold album all about celebrating the present and sharing it with the ones we love most.

Nik Greeley is known for being arguably the best frontman & performer in Philadelphia, and just in the last few years has established himself as one of the most entertaining & hard working musicians in the area, often being compared to the likes of James Brown, Joe Cocker, and Jim Morrison. Greeley released his solo debut EP Town Gypsy in Spring 2015, and has performed live sessions & received airplay on radio stations such as Radio 104.5, 88.5 WXPN, 93.3 WMMR, 93.7 WSTW and 95.9 WRAT. Greeley is also a member & singer in Philly funk band, Swift Technique, where he shares lead vocal duties with his female counter-part, Chelsea ViaCava. Members of ST also perform in The Operators, including Greg Rosen and Ian Gray.
 

The Operators is a collective of some of the finest musicians in Philly and who all happen to be friends, too. It includes producer/drummer Joe Baldacci, bassist, Kenny Shumski, and members of prog-fusion juggernauts Out of The Beardspace, Zach LoPresti (Lead Guitar) & Sam Gutman (Keyboards) along with Gnarbot guitarist Zack Smith (Guitar). The operators horn section is Jason O’Mara on saxophone, Nick Lombardelli on trombone and Matt Salazar on trumpet.

Greeley has had the pleasure of opening for respected artists such as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Gene Ween (Ween) Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Shuggie Otis, Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads) Fishbone, Moon Hooch, Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Rusted Root and many more.
