The Dead Pigeons are a roots-based americana band that formed over the course of a 5 year residency at Palmer's Bar, the notorious West Bank institution. This amazing cast of local players emerged and found each other through their love of making music. Gretta Hunstiger has been with Drew from the very beginning, perfecting her sound with beautiful and haunting fiddle layerings, along with fresh backup vocals. The rest of the supporting cast includes Ryan Douglas Canyon on mandolin, Daryn Christenson on percussion, and John Reinhart on bass.
The result is a group of dedicated musicians who put on an intimate live show that can be part barn dance and part bar brawl, with a mix of heartfelt, handcrafted ballads, foot stomping bluegrass tunes, and the occasional obscure cover. The release of their debut album, even if i knew, was a great success and afforded the band the opportunity to head out on their first major tour out west. They are currently in studio working on their follow up album, set to release in the spring of 2015.
