Throwback Thursday: Watch Marcus King Jam with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong at The Peach Music Festival 2018
To prepare for The Peach Music Festival 2019, we’re looking back at one of the most fiery sit-ins from last year’s celebration at Pennsylvania’s Montage Mountain.
On Thursday, July 17, 2018, during their daytime set at the fest, 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.
The Peach Music Festival 2019 is scheduled for July 25-28. For tickets and more information visit their official website. This year’s lineup includes Phil Lesh & Friends, Trey Anastasio Band, The String Cheese Incident, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and many more.
