Over the weekend, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong played two nights at Rams Head in Baltimore, MD. On the second night of the hometown run, the University of Maryland-bred funksters debuted a brand new song, “Yo Soy Fiesta”, to the lucky crowd of fans in attendance. Today, the band has shared pro-shot video of their live debut of the hard-partying Spanglish original.
“Yo Soy Fiesta” translates to “I Am Party”, and originates from a 2012 postgame interview between New England Patriots tight end/notorious partier Rob Gronkowski and a reporter from ESPN Deportes. Inspired by Gronkowski’s infamous sound bite, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong are taking this humorous dedication to the next level by inviting the football player to join the band on the stage during their three-night run in Boston this weekend.
As the band notes in a Facebook post debuting the live video, “We owe some inspiration to Rob Gronkowski… let’s invite him to join us at Paradise Rock Club in Boston this weekend as a token of our appreciation! … Spread the bird… Get Gronk Out to Flock Out!!”
Below, you can watch the newly released video of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong debuting “Yo Soy Fiesta” as well as a clip of the old Rob Gronkowski interview that inspired the song.

Rob Gronkowski – “Yo Soy Fiesta”
While the Gronk invitation is undoubtedly a tall order, it wouldn’t be the first time the Patriot made a surprise appearance onstage at a Boston concert. In 2016, during a Paul McCartney concert at Beantown’s storied Fenway Park, Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir joined in for a guest appearance. Midway through Weir’s sit-in, Paul also welcomed Gronkowski to join in. The results were…interesting? You can watch video of Sir Paul, Bobby, and Gronk at Fenway here.
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong hit the stage at Paradise Rock Club tonight, November 29th, for their first of three nights in Boston this weekend. Here’s hoping the band gets their Gronk wish.
