Lindner started The Pickle Mafia with Marco Cirigliano and Ben Chilbert in May of 2019. In the first six months the band released 28 live performance videos resulting in thousands of plays on Facebook and YouTube. The band plays everything from Nirvana to Chick Corea to Ariana Grande and a slew of danceable originals! Performances can vary from intimate grand piano sit down shows to straight up dance parties! Just in a short time the group has played 60+ shows across NYC, Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Southern tier, and the ADK. The bands mission statement is “to travel from city to city taking people on a musical journey together” .
