Watch Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Welcome Marcus King Band’s Royal Horns For “F.U.” At The Peach [Pro-Shot]

first_imgIn mid-July, The Peach Music Festival kicked off with an opening day lineup featuring fan-favorite rising-star artists like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Marcus King Band, Turkuaz, and Twiddle. Given the consistently high-caliber collaborations the festival hosts each year, it came as no surprise when various musicians joined forces, making for rare, exciting onstage moments.Despite all the talent at the festival, one of the most buzzed-about sets of The Peach Music Festival this year was Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s Thursday night show. As to be expected at festivals where numerous artists are on deck before and after their sets, the Baltimore-born funk-jam act took advantage of the musicians who were joining them on the Thursday lineup for The Peach. After electrifying takes on “Whoopie” and “Porcupine” to start the set, Pigeons invited out The Royal Horns—the young standout horn section for The Marcus King Band featuring saxophonist Dean Mitchell and trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson—for an energized “F.U.”, with the horns’ presence hinting at another special guest who would join the band later in the performance.Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has now released pro-shot multi-came video of The Royal Horns sit-in on “F.U.” for everyone to enjoy.

Another standout moment of the set was the band’s take on “Lightning”, which saw the group welcome Marcus King. Predictably, the performance functioned as a rock guitar clinic, with Pigeons guitarist Jeremy Schon and the young guitar prodigy going off and exchanging fiery solos during the song’s jam portion.Continuing with the momentum built during Marcus King’s surprise sit-in, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong launched into a “Fade Fast” sandwich, using the tune to house two energetic and nostalgic tracks from The Jungle Book that the band debuted during their Disney-themed New Year’s Eve show in Covington. After jamming through “Bare Necessities” and “I Wanna Be Like You”, the band eventually jammed back into “Fade Fast” before closing out their performance at The Peach Music Festival in full with a rendition of “Fun in Funk”.You can watch a full stream of Pigeons’ explosive set below, courtesy of Michael Liacos:Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – The Peach Festival 2018 – Part 1[Video: Michael Liacos]Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – The Peach Festival 2018 – Part 2[Video: Michael Liacos]Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | The Peach Music Festival | Scranton, PA | 7/19/2018Set: Whoopie, Porcupine, FU*, Somethin’ 4 Ya, Havana, Julia, Lightning^, Fade Fast > I Wanna Be Like You > Bare Necessities > I Wanna Be Like You > Jam > Fade Fast, Fun in FunkNotes: * The Royal Horns sit in | ^Marcus King sit inlast_img
