Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is a funk band that was initially founded as a duo in 2007. Completing its sound, the acoustic two-piece added a rhythm section to become a four-piece unit and the full band went on to build a jazz and psychedelic rock-infused sound around the New England area. The band's dance-inducing shows spread across audiences like a plague, igniting fan bases from coast to coast acorss the US.
After listening to the Durham, North Carolina-based folk rock outfit The Mountain Goats, people tend to get the impression that the guy writing the lyrics is some Pulitzer Prize winning literature aficionado. The way many of the band's songs are structured around strong, autobiographical-meets-historical lyrics are responsible for many fans falling in love with the band and becoming dedicated listeners.
