Pistol Peg is a Lot of Country and a Little Bit Rock and Roll
Pistol Peg (and the Beer Kegs) are a six-piece band from Altoona, PA led by siblings Mark and Jill Simanski. They may only cover modern country music, but they maintain a rock n’ roll persona throughout their first THON appearance with heavy guitar licks and heart-thumping drums.
Some songs they covered include Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl”, Miranda Lambert’s “Kerosene”, and Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party,” all featuring Jill’s impressive vocal skills.
They beautifully planned an even distribution of fast-paced hard rocking songs and mellower, laidback country tunes. Not to mention they even started a “WE ARE” chant in the middle of their set.
Best dance methods while listening to Pistol Peg included head nods, shimmying, and booty swaying with your thumbs in the belt loops of your jeans. Even the Star Wars characters looked like they were at a barnyard hoedown.
In my opinion, the best covers during their set included “Stuck Like Glue” by Sugarland and “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band.
