He has played solo and with bands, in large outdoor venues and tiny coffeehouses, to big crowds and small gatherings. He’s stood on stages and tabletops, under the lights and in dimly lit corners, in large cities, small towns, a couple of state fairs and one beauty pageant. He’s played four-hour shows single-handedly and traded half-hour sets at a weekly house gig at a bar in Guatemala City with “some guy named Luis, who sang songs like My Way in Spanish. The pay was 15 quetzales and all the Gallo beer I could drink.” Pellinger’s songwriting bears the mark of a variety of influences such as Lennon & McCartney, Bob Marley, Elvis Costello, Squeeze, even Hank Williams.
