Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Welcomes Marcus King & The Royal Horns At The Peach Fest [Full Set Video]

first_imgOn Thursday night, The Peach Festival kicked off, marking the start of one of the most highly anticipated music festivals of the summer. While today will see the festival expand to three stages by opening the Grove Stage, Thursday night still offered fans plenty of music to enjoy across the Peach and Mushroom Stage, the latter which was held down by Harrison Waxenberg of Horizon Wireless who recently released a sensational jam-band remix album.To kick off the festivities, The Marcus King Band started things off with a fiery, soulful performance, followed up by bluegrass act Cabinet, who came out of their recent indefinite hiatus to perform for The Peach crowd. Ahead of New York-based funk act Turkuaz and Vermont-born jam quartet Twiddle closing out the Peach Stage, the fan-favorite jam-funk fusion group out of Baltimore, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, took the stage and offered a high-octane performance of their own.As to be expected at festivals where numerous artists are on deck before and after their sets, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong took advantage of the musicians who were joining them on the Thursday lineup for The Peach. After electrifying takes on “Whoopie” and “Porcupine” to start the set, Pigeons invited out The Royal Horns—the young standout horn section for The Marcus King Band—for the group’s energized classic “F.U.”, with the horns’ presence hinting at another special guest who would join the band later in the evening.With the departure of The Royal Horns, the band moved through two additional fan-favorite numbers, “Havana” and “Julia”, easily enrapturing the crowd with their fun-loving and propulsive sound. However, one of the truly standout moments of the set was the band’s take on “Lightning”, which saw the group welcome Marcus King. Predictably, the performance was exactly as you’d expect, with Pigeons guitarist Jeremy Schon and the young guitar prodigy going off and exchanging fiery solos during the song’s jam portion.“Lightning” with Marcus King [Video: Christopher Snyder]Continuing with the momentum built during Marcus King’s surprise sit-in, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong launched into a “Fade Fast” sandwich, using the tune to house two energetic and nostalgic tracks from The Jungle Book that the band debuted during their Disney-themed New Year’s Eve show in Covington. Jamming through “Bare Necessities” and “I Wanna Be Like You”, the band eventually jammed back into “Fade Fast” before closing out their performance at The Peach Music Festival in full with a rendition of “Fun in Funk”.You can also watch a full stream of Pigeons’ explosive set below, courtesy of Michael Liacos.Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | The Peach Music Festival | Scranton, PA | 7/19/2018Set: Whoopie, Porcupine, FU*, Somethin’ 4 Ya, Havana, Julia, Lightning^, Fade Fast > I Wanna Be Like You > Bare Necessities > I Wanna Be Like You > Jam > Fade Fast, Fun in FunkNotes: * The Royal Horns sit in | ^Marcus King sit inPigeons Playing Ping Pong – The Peach Festival 2018 – Part 1 Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – The Peach Festival 2018 – Part 2last_img read more

Indian Premier League IPL 2018, Highlights, DD vs RCB: Bangalore win by 5 wickets after Kohli, AB masterclass

It is the right time to get a win for us. It was a great feeling playing in front of a big crowd. Surprising to see so much support for us in Delhi. Again not a clinical show with the ball. At this stage of the tournament, maybe we will prefer bowling first because the batsmen can take more responsibility. Ask the opposition team to get the runs and tell them we are coming to chase it down. I wasn’t happy with the way we finished with the ball, but AB told me that we can do this and that is what helped me get my focus back and then I let my instincts take over. We were looking to finish it with a few more overs to spare to help the net run rate, but the two points are very important.” # Shreyas Iyer: With the kind of start we got, getting to 180 I thought was more than enough. Unfortunately we weren’t able to defend this as well; we aren’t executing the plans we form in the dressing room. I don’t feel the pressure of captaincy at all. Today was one of those bad days when I couldn’t time the ball well at all. The only thing you can do to handle pressure is by scoring regularly. I have a few coaches and mentors whose inputs I take regularly. I wouldn’t like to take their names, just in case I forget someone. We are already making 3-4 changes in every game and we are hoping to set up our team for the next season. New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils host Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Feroz Shah Kotla, New Delhi in the Indian Premier League 2018.In a clash between two sides lying bottom of the table, it is going to be a fascinating battle of pride, with some big names set to play for their pride.Head to head: DD 6 – 13 RCB. Since 2011, RCB have won 12 out of the 13 completed games against DD, including a Super Over win.Highlights:# AB de Villiers (Man of the Match): “To be honest with you it felt a bit weired tonight. Luckily Mishy bowled me one full ball out there and luckily I got it away and that kick started my innings. I started off slowly, luckily Virat was going well at the other end. Started feeling much better after 10-15 balls. It’s admirable to see youngsters come here and perform well (talking about Lamichhane), very happy to be a part of a tournament like this. We play for a proud franchise, the management and my team meates and that is what motivates me.”center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. # Royal Challengers Bangalore have won the toss and have opted to fieldlast_img read more
