Atlanta Hawks organist takes requests


ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Atlanta Hawks have probably the best in-arena organist in the business. Sir Foster has become known for playing all sorts of songs you never hear played on an organ during Hawks games. It’s a little bit deceiving — you’re used to hearing typical “rah rah” songs from the organ, so if you’re not careful you might not notice that Foster is jamming on OutKast or 2 Chainz or whatever Atlanta or national artist is popular at the time.

Foster is very active on Twitter, interacting with fans during games. (I’ve requested he play ATL group Kriss Kross‘s “Jump” whenever there’s a jump ball.) Yesterday, our friends at SB Nation launched a campaign to get Foster to play “Pony” by Ginuwine during last night’s Hawks/Wizards game. Why “Pony?” As they said on SB Nation, “there is one song every human being on earth enjoys, and that song is ‘Pony’ by Ginuwine.”

After using Twitter to lobby Foster during the day, he responded…

And with 3 minutes to go in the third, Foster played “Pony.” You can watch the moment here.

Awesome stuff. Now we just need him to play Kriss Kross’s “Jump!”

    I love it when Al Horford gets a bucket and he plays ‘You can call me Al’ by Paul Simon.
