Peter Gendron / Bio

Once upon a time there were four little boys all brothers being from the same. Their mother (who made them all brothers) gave unto them a recorded disc of the Swan persuasion which upon it play "She Loves You" (yeh,yeh,yeh) and also "I'll Get You". Being this was in the year of Our Load Nineteen and Sixty Four, they then had to be watched into the television the show of "The Ed Sullivan". Learning... at that time the proper way to Beatle with an A, they promptly dressed in Sunday best and proceeded to pantomime with tennis racquet and cardboard box. The youngest of the boys, being unsuitable for tennis racquet, was relegated to Ringodom and was quickly cardbored. He then went and consumed most any and all recorded disc preferably those of the Capitol persuasion. Being of too small an age for guitar, he got together with other youngsters whose parents felt they were old enough to make horrible noise of Petula Clark in any available church basement. The other small people of his age, having pity, instructed on him the E, A, D, and finally the dreaded barred F. His parent-al parents, seeing that that he was of the guitar age, bestowed upon our hero the awful Aria, followed by the Gibson, and at least the Fender. As in the meantime he had just been singing to others guitars, he took upon himself the task of other chords and promptly tortured all with his mangling. He then spent most of his misbegotten youth playing songs of others composition. Afterwords he decided the time was now and then to write & sing songs of his own combination and did so enjoying the fun of that for more misspent years. Soon he was empty of songs and felt the need to refill his think tank with the happiness of youth. At that time was spotted an advert for John whom he felt was to his capable. Upon response, and many auditions and purchases later, he now found a happy home for his childhood Beatledom. And then his empty think tank being refilled with mucho inspiration, he returned to his writing ways and tourtured the world (and a few close friends) with newer and bluer compositions. And so the saga continues... THE "SERIOUS" BIO - Peter Gendron A lifelong singer songwriter originally from Pawtucket, RI, has played in any and all situations. Starting off in the cover band circuit and fronting his own original band "VOLGA" in the 1980’s he played all over the New England area. One of his original song “Temporary Solutions” was included on the Living Rooms “CITY HISTORY” album in 1984 along with local legends the Schemers, Rash of Stabbings, and the Neighborhoods. After the birth of his second daughter in 1985, he devoted his time to being a Dad but always stayed playing and writing. A long time Beatles fan, he returned to playing in 1998 with a vengeance when he auditioned for and won the role of John Lennon in "THE FAB FOUR” (later The Best of Beatlemania) playing across the USA and into Canada and Mexico. In the fall of 2009 the next phase of Beatledom debuted as "LENNON-LIVE" (www.lennon-live.com) a tribute to John's solo and Beatle carreer. As a session musician he has played and sang on various projects including playing with his nephew Mike G in Mike's original band "MIKE G & ASSOCIATES" on his debut album "A Travelers Diary". He also gigs regularly with Mike and his fellow Associates. After many years apart the members of VOLGA (MK3) (Bob Howe & DJ) reunited and found out they could still play the old songs (badly) and the new songs (wonderfully). They now play every Wednesday at the Open Mic Pete hosts at the ROCKY POINT PUB inWarwick, RI and at other venues under different assumed names (usually "P, B, & DJ" but sometimes "KATHLEEN TURNER OVERDRIVE"(lol). He is now again writing and playing his own songs while occasionally doing a Beatles songs or two (or five or six). He now resides and records in Seekonk, MA.
