EP 109 - Life Is Live With Greg Ormont from Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

Our guest this week is the one and only (scrambled) Greg Ormont from Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. We talk to Greg about what it means to give 100%, how to balance work and life in a way that’s meaningful, realizing that at some point we have to take care of ourselves, how being a theater kid gave him a solid foundation, and a whole bunch more!

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is a band whose very existence is rooted in the unyielding quest for joy and positive energy. Blending infectious funk grooves, psychedelic jams, and experimental electronics, the Baltimore four-piece’s new album, ‘Pizazz,’ is a buoyant, blissful reminder of just how much fun music can be. Eschewing the traditional funk band lineup that typically includes keyboards, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong constructs effervescent soundscapes with just two guitars, bass, and drums, crafting their music with a sophisticated ear for both open space and dense layering.

Annable Lukins joins us this week for a super, extra special No Simple Road!! This is one of those conversations that stops us in our tracks. We talk to Annabel about making her Father proud, finding her way to Cloud 9 Adventures, being fearless, living passionately, being ‘The Artist Whisperer’, parenthood, sobriety, and so much more I’d be here all day trying to summarize.

Annabel works with Cloud 9 Adventures which is the premier provider of international concert vacations at all-inclusive resorts and on luxurious cruise ships, bringing bands and fans together in intimate settings, creating unforgettable memories & life-changing experiences.
