Poi Dog Pondering Background
Poi Dog Pondering envisioned as a solo career that evolved into a group of talented musicians with a knack for performance. Frank Orrall originally founded it in 1984 while he lived in Hawaii. He spent the first year working on his own before putting together a larger lineup. By 1985, the band was ready and performed its first show at the Honolulu Academy of the Arts. After that first show, the band took off and has become relentless in its acquiring of new fans. It is easy to see when Poi Dog Pondering takes to the stage why the band has become popular since its inception.
It did not take long before Poi Dog Pondering was leaving the island of Hawaii for the mainland to busk across North America. Interestingly, the busking led to the development of fans. Even though the lineup has changed over the years, the band continues to put on an excellent performance and has come a long way since taking it to the streets as a band. In fact, the band's lineup has change over the years prior to each record release. The quality of musicians and performers has never failed. It has always been selected with high standards.
Eventually, the band moved from Hawaii and established new roots in Chicago, Illinois. In its new home, Poi Dog Pondering has continued to be one of the most exciting acts in the ton. In addition to living in Hawaii and Chicago, a number of Poi Dog Pondering members have settled in Austin, Texas. No matter where one is, this band is one that you must see perform in person. Poi Dog Pondering offers an exciting live show all these years.
Poi Dog Pondering Trivia
During an interview with Frank Orrall, he revealed an interesting perspective about writing music. According to the artist, "Making a song is like making a baby; first, there is the impregnation (the initial spark of the song idea), then the incubation period (where the idea gets slowly fleshed out in your mind), the birth (the demo version), then you raise it up as best you can and get it ready for graduation (recorded version of the song). Then it goes off to college (i.e. tour) on its own…. gets a new haircut, maybe a piercing, experiments with substances & sleeps around a bit. Maybe even goes traveling around Europe for the summer; becomes it's own thing. When that song comes back from tour it is a different being, more world-wise and confident… slightly cocky, in a good way… [Having] gained a little swagger."
