Balloon Ride Fantasy at The Wilderness Recording Studio presents HughShows Live @ Eide’s on Saturday, August 9th, 2014 in Pittsburgh, PA.

Balloon Ride Fantasy is an indie pop band consisting of 6 members who combine rich instrumentation, vocal harmonies and ridiculous concepts to create fun and interesting songs. They released their debut album, Monocle City in Spring 2011. The album continues to enjoy a warm reception on iTunes and Pandora, as well as in local, national and international music communities. A strong dynamic and sense of humor are evident throughout the songs, whose lyrics indulge a ravenous pack of zombies, a fantastical Japanese dreamland and other outlandish lyrical themes, all sung over catchy melodic hooks.”

The Pittsburgh band has taken a break from gigging this fall to concentrate on their sophomore release following last year’s debut, “Monacle City“. My sincere thanks to Phil Conley (Vocals/Keys), Chris Olsziewski (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Bethany Berkstresser (Vocals/Percussion) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, guys. Looking forward to hear what you will be cooking up for us. BTW Chris, Rant on brother! I for one would love to hear your full thoughts on Pittsburgh music!
