BUSTED: Waterfront, Tues 28 Feb
The Pigeon Detectives, Limelight 2, 3rd March
Formed in 2002 The Pigeon Detectives are Matt Bowman on lead vocals, Oliver Main and Ryan Wilson on guitars, Dave Best on Bass, and Jimmi Naylor on drums. Friends from school and having known one another since they were 12, the band enjoyed a meteoric rise starting in Leeds where they signed with local label Dance to the radio, going on to sell over half a million records of their debut album ‘Wait for Me’.
The rotating collective of musicians re-imagine contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown – or, as Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.” As well as a massive online presence, they’ve picked up a lot of famous fans such as Gwen Stefani.
