Imagine if you could take loyalty, friendship, wit and humor, and combine it with laser beams, neon lights, robots, ninjas, and Sasquatch, to create a musical genre? PONTOON did just that.
These 3 oddly ordinary guys, bring the unconventional to the stage, in the form of
1 drum kit, 2 trombones,
4 synthesizers, 1 vocoder, lots of pedals and cords and wires, and quite often, live projections.
Their tracks are all originals and completely unplanned. Their songs are created as they collaborate during live sessions. A highly creative musical banter so to speak. Song titles present themselves during this process, as history, current and events, and plans for the future are woven together, allowing them to evolve as musicians, friends, and cavemen.
3 childhood friends, originally from Ramsey New Jersey, who began playing together in Brooklyn NY in 1999. They now call Beacon home.
They are everything that you’ve never expected. they are PONTOON.
