A duo, Friendship & Stoo, using Human Beatbox, Bass Trombone, Tenor Saxophone, Keyboards, and live-looping equipment to create the biggest, baddest party-funk experience you've never heard in your life. The Hornitz was founded in May 2006 as a horn-section-for-hire in and around Boston, MA. The group worked with many notable artists such as George Clinton, Guster, and State Radio, but in 2008 The Hornitz began producing original music as a duo. After a few years of experimenting and fine-tuning, Friendship and Stoo now create a show that is one of the most dynamic spectacles ever produced by two people. Using human beatbox, horns, keyboards and modern live-looping equipment they form large walls of sound and high energy dance parties.

With a high-energy mix of funk, rock, electronica and jazz, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has an undeniably unique and versatile live sound that ascends peaks of musical ecstasy, consistently creating a great time for all. Through a continually evolving selection of original and cover songs merged together by seamless improvisational jams, they've built a strong loyal following, aptly called 'The Flock,' who they refuse to disappoint. With no end in sight, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is here to bring the party with their danceable electro-funk grooves and infectious ability to bring positive energy to any environment.
2012 has been an exciting year for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, with two very successful weekly residencies at The 8×10 in Baltimore, along with many high profile festival spots including Catskill Chill, The Werk Out, Camp Barefoot and Grateful Fest. They have also shared the stage with many artists including Papadosio, The Werks, Ludacris (seriously), The Bridge, The Heavy Pets, That 1 Guy, The Pimps of Joytime, Zoogma, Jimkata and The Motet.
Playing over 100 shows a year, Pigeons continue to expand people's minds (musically…), playing a unique, energy-packed set at every show. Whether it be at a major festival or in your basement, Pigeons will show you a good time.
Fans across America are talking about SOPHISTAFUNK, the product of three multi-talented musicians [Adam Gold, Jack Brown, & Emanuel Washington] who combine spoken-word artistry, old-school hip hop, & funky rhythms to create a unique live band experience.
