    Poi Dog Pondering 30 years on, 15 band members deep: Poi Dog Pondering are stronger than ever & continue to thrive & evolve on their 8th full length album entitled Everybodys Got A Star. Their unique signature Acous-tronic blend of orchestral, rock and dance music influences, shine through with PDPs ever present irreverence to stylistic conformity.Everybodys Got A Star is an un-apologetic off-road venture, recalling the joys of the 80s/90s Discos that careened from one genre to the next with a membrane of madness to the method.Growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii, we really only had one good Live Music/Disco/ Club; The Wave. It was a Punk Rock/New Wave Club from 9 to 2am, then a Gay Disco from 2am to 4am. Everybody mixing it up & having fun. You could hear everything from Iggy Pops Lust for life, to the Clashs Magnificent 7 to Loose Joints Is it all over my face. Im super thankful for that eclecticism. Music for dancing is like an elliptical orbit, its always around me, but sometimes it swings in real close and sweeps me along full force for a while.Poi Dog Pondering keeps thriving because their ethic has always been about following their musical heart. Their steadfast independence has allowed them to perennially bloom. From bohemian street buskers to impossible to market major label sacrificial lambs, to hard won autonomy with their own record label; Poi dog pondering have ripened into staunchly independent musical voyagers. They have let every sound that excited them flow through their music and flood it with ever changing colors: Orchestral, Acoustic and Electronic textures. Rock Band Disco, Chicago Stepper Soul & their unique Soul Sonic Orchestra Sound. (Threaded all along the way with heart on the sleeve lyrics that embrace the beauty and pain of everyday life).30 years down the line there is a bolstered sense of history within the band now. A swagger that comes from having steadfastly carved their own path. It is quite apparent that PDP has always been, and ever will be, in-it-for-the-love-of-it; creating and performing. Line up changes are par for the course. PDP is an organic entity, it changes like life does. But there is a core with strong roots & deep personal history, open to new ears and ready to experiment. Thats what keeps it vibrant.Poi dog pondering formed in Hawaii in 1986. The first live performance was at the Honolulu Arts Academy. Filled with youthful imitative exuberance and inspiration from reading about Andy Warhol and the Velvet Undergrounds Exploding Plastic inevitable projected film and music happenings, PDP projected films of lava eruptions, ocean and other natural environments over the band as they performed. The tradition of projected imagery along with PDP live performances developed and matured over the years and continues to this day thanks to long time film and video artist/collaborators Luke Savisky and Marco Ferrari.ARTIST WEBSITE || FACEBOOK
