FunkCity.net Does North Beach: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
Jake Funkmayor of FunkCity.net caught some great video at North Beach Music Festival December 10 & 11 in Miami. Here is his video of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong along with our review and photographs courtesy of slightly skewed photography .
That left it to Pigeons Playing Ping Pong to close out this picture-perfect night one under balmy skies with their patented barrage of funk, with plenty of guests liberally sprinkled in. After, appropriately, “Yo Soy Fiesta,” they continued the bounce Rykman had started. Hann was the first up as they tore through “Move Like That* > Upfunk* > Drums* > Upfunk*” with Hann and drummer Alex Petropulos matched up perfectly.
They played lots of fan favorites as Schon and bassist Ben Carrey romped, and there’s nobody who looks more joyful than Scrambled Greg Ormont. AC Carter of TAUK and The Horn Section also visited the stage, which, we should point out, is TINY! Kudos to the bands and stage managers for making everything happen. Of COURSE The Horn Section helped to punctuate “F.U.” in the encore!
