365 Things To Do In Wheeling.

#22. Live, Local Music. 

"Remember when Wheeling had an awesome music scene?  Boy it sure isn't like it used to be" 


You know when I heard this? In 1994. And 1999. And 2005. And today.

Stop saying that.  Why?

Because there is STILL an amazing array of local talent.

Where do I see them?

Glad you asked.

Well, this weekend you can catch a night of psychedelic funk and rock.  Say, wha?

In their words -

Funk, Rock, Electric ENERGY: These four Pigeons bring it every night. Based out of Baltimore, MD, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has an undeniably unique and versatile live sound that ascends peaks of musical ecstasy. Their evolving arrangement of original compositions, psychedelic improvisational jams, and contagious smiles have ‘The Flock’– their self-identifying fanbase that stretches from coast-to-coast– coming back for more. One of the fastest growing emerging artists in the jam and festival scene these days, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is here to bring the party with their danceable electro-funk grooves and infectious ability to bring positive energy to any environment.

Like a throwback science-fiction series, KR-3 in many ways embodies nostalgia of the past while forging ahead with futuristic ideas. In fact, the band took its name from a 1974 science-fiction novel's reference to psychedelia. The group - described by some as an "indie-rock band that jams" has a sound that has been dubbed “Appalachian Psychedelia”. KR-3 keeps one foot firmly planted in old-school psychedelic rock 'n' roll and one hand turning knobs on doors that lead to unexplored spaces. The band’s sound is a soul grabbing, mind expanding, psychedelic funk and blues inspired jam, mixed with prevailing three part vocal harmonies.

What a night in Wheeling! Bringing you the best entertainment in town! You DO NOT want to miss this show!
