WILMINGTON — “It’s crazy to think they fit all that energy and sound into The Calico Room in 2016,” photographer Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media said as he was shooting the concert of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong for Port City Daily.
With a sound and vibe energy-ready for festivals like Lockn’, Dorgan noted the band’s light show was “on point” at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater on Apr. 21. Not to mention, PPPP were in full force conjuring a dance party for everyone in attendance.
The group is touring in support of its newest album, “Perspective,” which dropped on Apr. 8. It’s the band’s eighth release since 2010, featuring the bands honed-in psychedelic and funk sounds.
Made up of lead vocalist and guitarist “Scrambled” Greg Ormont, lead guitarist and vocals Jeremy Schon, bassist and vocals Ben Carrey, and Alex “Gator” Petropulos on drums, PPPP played through 17 songs in two sets. They also did two covers including from boy band NSync, rock icons The Beatles and R&B synth-pop artist The Weeknd.
Below are photos and the setlist from the show.
