Baltimore’s funk/jam outfit known as Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will be hitting the road this coming winter for a 16-show run starting Feb. 7 in State College, Pa. The announcement of their first 2018 tour dates last week follows the release of their fourth studio album this past October with Pizazz. The winter run will presumably be the first of many road dates in which the popular jam band will embark on next year, having built a following thanks to their high-energy live show and continuous touring year in and year out.
Running just over a month, the winter tour will see the band playing a handful of large and smaller markets before coming to a close on March 15 in Detroit. Notable stops on the tour include scheduled performances at the well-known Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ on Feb. 9, Pink Garter in big sky country aka Jackson, WY on March 6, and Denver’s Ogden Theatre on March 10. Pigeons will be joined by various support acts throughout the five-week tour, including Broccoli Samurai, Juice and Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers.
Last week’s announcement also arrived with the confirmation of their own Domefest Music Festival, which will return for its third straight year next spring at the Fort Royale Farm in Bedford, Pa. on May 17-19. This past year’s Domefest featured multiple performances by some of the most exciting bands in the jam scene including Aqueous, The Main Squeeze, Electric Love Machine, G-Nome Project and Broccoli Samurai to name a few.
