Pistol Peg Came to THON with Guns A-blazin’

As the fourth band in THON 2014’s line-up, Pistol Peg got right down to business in getting the crowd fired up. The first all-country band to take the Four Diamonds stage comes from Altoona, Pennsylvania. They must have had a pretty positive impression on last year’s crowd, because they invited them back again this year for a second go around.

The band played a variety of feel-good covers, including Zach Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried.” Disregarding my personal obsession with that song and the bias that comes along with it, it seemed that this was also a crowd favorite. Their set list of about 15 songs also included “Little White Church” and “Boondocks” by Little Big Town, “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker, and “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line, among songs I’ve never heard in my life (country really isn’t my thing) and a mid-performance “We Are” chant.

I wouldn’t describe the crowd’s reaction as a “gimme more now” frenzy, but there was plenty of cheering after each song and it’s clear this band has a wide range of talent to offer. Though I can’t say I’d pay for a concert like this, sticking mostly to covers of popular sing-alongs won me over at least a little. One and a half thumbs up for Pistol Peg.
