Four years after releasing their first EP “No Better," Pigeon Town finally found the perfect place to record their second album... in Pigeon Town, the funky, working-class New Orleans neighborhood that the band is named for. Working with engineer Lu Rojas (Allen Toussaint, Anders Osborne) at Oak St. Recording Studios, the band has captured on disc the signature sound that makes their live shows so memorable.

The ten original songs are a showcase for songwriters Jason Scott and Tom Stevenson, who trade duties on guitar, bass and vocals; Mike Wadsworth, who contributes organ, piano and accordion; and the world-class drumming and soaring lead guitar of veteran players Paul Santopadre and Skeet Stiller.

Pigeon Town has earned underground acclaim and a devoted following over the past six years, playing regularly at legendary late-night New Orleans venues such as the world-famous Maple Leaf Bar and Le Bon Temps Roule, as well as at the band’s freak-friendly Central City home base, Verrett’s Lounge. Formed in 2009 as a part-time collaboration between five veteran musicians with a common love for slide guitar, churchy keys and Southern soul, the band plays hard, loud and proud, creating a groovy original soundtrack for genuine people living unglamorous lives. The group’s graceful guitar work, irresistible rhythms and honest songwriting celebrate the struggles and triumphs of the city’s unknown rogues and heroes. Pigeon Town’s high-energy sets, original songs and expansive, bayou-boogie style have drawn comparisons to local legends The Radiators and Dr. John, with enough greasy funk, ageless gospel and gritty garage rock thrown in to keep things weird. Somewhere in the mix, you can hear the church choir, the streetcar, the sirens and the second line – sounds of the little piece of New Orleans the locals call Pigeon Town.
