Watch Marcus King Join Pigeons Playing Ping Pong at Peach Fest 2018

August 8, 2018

Last month’s Peach Festival brought a number of surprise collaborations to Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA, with one of the most fiery pairings coming on day one, when Baltimore-based funk-rock outfit Pigeons Playing Ping Pong joined forces with guitar phenom Marcus King for an…electric take on Pigeons’ own tune “Lightning.” 

Though King’s stoic-yet-commanding stage presence didn’t quite match up with Pigeons’ rowdy, head-banging antics, the musicians all synced up where it counts, making for an engaging, solo-filled, nearly 14-minute run of “Lightning,” featuring plenty of licks from King, who was able to show a slightly different side to his playing within the angular riffs and beats of PPPP’s music.
