The Dead Pigeons have come to be known for their infectious, foot stomping sound – an original mix of upbeat barroom bluegrass and lyrically driven ballads. One day they excel at corralling a rowdy festival crowd and the next they are captivating a discerning theater audience.
Born on the West Bank of Minneapolis, The Dead Pigeons have been touring, picking, and perfecting their americana-roots sound for the past 6 years. Constantly evolving, The Pigeons remain steady at the core – a group of dedicated homegrown musicians with a unique brand that has captivated fans throughout the country.
They have had the incredible opportunity to play many amazing festivals, including headlining Sioux River Folk Festival and The Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival. Their calendar has included a wide variety of venues, from breweries to theaters and house shows. Their debut album, “Even if I Knew,” has been a great success, going on its third pressing. It is available for download or purchase on the website and at live shows.
