Psych-funk Trailblazers: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong to Land in Montana for Two Nights

Psychedelic funk band Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will fly to Montana for two nights early 2020 — landing first at the Top Hat in Missoula on February 25th and then at the Rialto in Bozeman on February 26th.

The band consists of guitarist/vocalist Greg Ormont, guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Schon, bassist Ben Carrey, and drummer Alex “Gator” Petropulos. The past two years have been big for the rock quartet, as they’ve 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 Domefest, and even earned their first headline arena show.

They formed at the University of Maryland nearly a decade ago and have since played more than a thousand shows across 44 states. Glide called them “a band that melts faces and pulls no punches,” while Relix praised the group as “joyous” and “dance-worthy,” and Jambase described them simply as a “powerhouse.” Acting as their own independent label, the Baltimore-based quartet has released four studio albums (including their widely-acclaimed 2017 record, Pizazz) and racked up more than twenty million streams on Spotify.

They’ve quickly become festival favorites, too, performing everywhere from Bonnaroo to Electric Forest to Jazz Fest and welcoming top-tier sit-ins along the way from Marcus King and Karl Denson along with members of Vulfpeck, The Revivalists, Umphrey’s McGee and The String Cheese Incident among others.

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 22nd at 10AM. Logjam presale tickets will be available Nov. 21st. Complete details can be found in each of the event pages below. Pigeons Playing Ping Pong are partnering with Backline to donate $1 from every ticket sold to support their mission of being the music industry’s mental health & wellness resource hub.
