Baltimore, MD-based quartet Pigeons Playing Ping Pong have been tearing the East Coast music scene up with their electrified brand of psychedelic funk since 2009, bringing some serious heat to the masses every time they take the stage. Their undeniable energy and ability to stretch songs out into uncharted territories on a nightly basis, has made them one of the hottest acts to see in the jam scene today. Pigeons live performance is simply something that has to be witnessed in order to fully comprehend.

Consistently playing 150-200+ shows a year, the band's current run of upcoming dates marks the first time the funky foursome will take flight out to the West Coast. The group, made up of Scrambled Greg (vocals/guitars), Jeremy Schon (guitar/vocals), Ben Carrey (bass/vocals) and Alex Petropulos (drums/electronics) are geared up and looking to expand their ever-growing "Flock" nationwide.

"To say we're ecstatic would be an understatement," said Scrambled Greg, lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Pigeons. "We've been waiting a long time to give the Pacific Time Zone some serious love and I'm beyond stoked that the time has finally come. I can't wait to soak in the left coast sun, make some new friends and give these debuts everything I funking got."

The band begins their “Flying West 2017 Tour” in Colorado at Denver’s Ogden Theatre with Dopapod before making their way to the Pacific to make their debut in 7 states including Montana, Washington, California and Arizona. The tour culminates with a four-night run supporting Lotus in the Midwest. Tickets go on sale on Friday Dec. 9th at 1pm EST / 10am PST via the band’s website.

Watch Pigeons Playing Ping Pong perform “High As Five > PYT > Pinball Wizard > Praise You > Picture In Picture > Praise You > High As Five” live at Paradise Rock Club in Boston, MA on 10/28/16:
