Pigeons Playing Ping Pong welcomed Neighbor guitarist Lyle Brewer for a guest spot on Saturday night during the band’s second of two shows at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. Brewer added to “Poseidon” towards the end of PPPP’s first set.

The Baltimore-based jam quartet opened Saturday’s concert with live staple “Somethin’ For Ya” and then fit a cover of The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” within “Skipjack.” PPPP went on to connect “Landing” and “Too Long” with an expansive jam. Next, Brewer from support act Neighbor emerged for an adventurous “Poseidon” that spanned nearly 20 minutes. Lyle took a blues-laced solo and then tore it up with Pigeons lead guitarist Jeremy Schon as the band jammed the fan-favorite to a massive climax. Year-old original “In The Bubble” closed the frame.

Frontman Greg Ormont responded to questions posed by those watching the livestream on Relix’s Twitch channel to begin the second set. Pigeons Playing Ping Pong then delivered a well-jammed “Upfunk” and their fourth “Day In Time” before working “Drunk People” into “Moonwalk” and back again. The four-piece continued the focus on original material with “Fox And Toad,” a “Condenser” into “Su Casa” into “Condenser” sequence and “Horizon” to end the set. Saturday’s show concluded with a “Zydeko” encore in which the band fit in “Tale As Old As Time” from the Beauty And The Beast soundtrack.
