Throughout their show, the Baltimore-based funk act worked in a number of classic Disney tunes alongside the group’s more typical catalog.With all members of the group dressed as Mickey Mouse in his familiar outfit of red pants and suspenders, black shirts, and mouse ears, Pigeons wasted no time getting to work, opening the show with the Lion King opening and the 20th Century Fox theme and giving a glimpse to fans as to what was in store for the rest of the evening. Mixed in with takes on their own tunes like “Walk Outside”, “King Kong”, and “Something For Ya” were covers of The Lion King’s “Mighty Jungle” (“The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, originally made famous in 1961 by The Tokens), “Hakkunah Matatah”, and “Just Can’t Wait To Be King” in addition to a rendition of Moana’s “Shiny”.For the second set, the band returned first with “Too Long”, a tune off the group’s most recent album Pizazz, and a fan-pleasing rendition of “Poseidon” before a take on “Auld Lange Syne” to start off 2018. Returning to their Disney theme, the group pulled some tunes inspired by Aladdin, including “A Whole New World”, “Arabian Nights”, and Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride”. Housed in a “Horizon” sandwich, the group worked in a cover of Jungle Book’s “Bare Necessities”, which was then followed by covers of “When You Wish Upon A Shooting Star” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and their original new tune “Dawn A New Day”.[Video: Silas Tockey]Rounding out the show, the group used “Schwanthem” as a jumpoff point for a take on Pochahontos’ “Color Of The Wind” before ending the show with a return to “Schwanthem” and “The Liquid”. For Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s encore, the group laid out a standout rendition of “Couldn’t We All” before performing the “Mickey Mouse Club” introduction theme, then finishing out the show in full with a “Zydeco” sandwich featuring “A Tale As Old As Time”.You can check out a full gallery of photos from the show below, courtesy of Phierce Photography.Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Madison Theater | Covington, KY | 12/31/2017Set One: Circle of Life Intro* > 21st Century Fox > Melting Lights Walk Outside > The Lion Sleeps Tonight > Walk Outside King Kong > Shiny* > King Kong Sunny Day Hakuna Matata* > Time To Ride Somethin’ For Ya > I Just Can’t Wait To Be King*Set Two: Too Long Poseidon% > Auld Lang Syne^ > A Whole New World*^ > Magic Carpet Ride # > Poseidon Horizon > I Wanna Be Like You* > Bare Necessities* > I Wanna Be Like You > Horizon > When You Wish Upon A Star*^ Dawn A New Day Skipjack > Can You Feel The Love Tonight* Schwanthem > Colors of The Wind* > Schwanthem > The LiquidEncore: Couldn’t We All > M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E* Zydeko > Tale As Old As Time*^ > ZydekoNotes: * First time played | ^ Instrumental | % w/ NYE countdown | # w/ “Arabian Nights” and “How Far I’ll Go” teases <a href=”http://pigeonsplayingpingpong.bandcamp.com/album/disnye-2017″>DisNYE 2017 by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong</a>center_img Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Pixabay Stock Image.WASHINGTON – The Problem Solvers Caucus has endorsed the Great American Outdoors Act, a landmark conservation bill that will help ensure public lands are protected and preserved.“America’s public lands are some of the most beautiful and majestic places in the world and they must be protected,” said Problem Solvers Co-Chair Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY). “I’m proud to see the Problem Solvers Caucus endorse this bipartisan and bicameral bill that will help ensure public lands across the country are protected today and the years to come.”The bipartisan legislation passed the Senate 73-25 and if signed into law would provide full, permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) at a level of $900 million every year and address the approximately $20 billion maintenance backlog on federal public lands.The Great American Outdoors Act was introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Angus King (I-ME), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). Problem Solvers Representatives Joe Cunningham (D-SC), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Kendra Horn (D-OK), John Katko (R-NY), and Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives. Reps. Cunningham and Fitzpatrick brought the bill to the Problem Solvers Caucus for endorsement where more than 75 percent of the 50-member caucus agreed to support the bill.House leadership announced it will consider the Great American Outdoors Act under a rule on the Floor at the end of July. President Trump has signaled he will sign the bill into law.last_img read more
