Performing live since 2002, Pete Jive has been spreading the message of self affirmation and compassion throughout the greater Chicagoland area. Bassist, Juice Digits, and Vocalist/Guitarist, Pete Jive, provide a feel-good show every time, diffusing positivity and spreading good vibrations nightly to their rapidly growing fan base. The band’s first E.P. “Live at the Kinetic Playground” was released October 2009 and was the first album to showcase Pete Jive’s “old country picking style and youthful wisdom”, as Josh Hisle from Neil Young’s Vapor Records put it. In June 2011, the group will release “No Sign of Regret”, their first studio album, 2 years in the making. This record features elements of traditional American folk music, roots reggae and rock ‘n’ roll, which have shaped Pete Jive’s sound and direction from the start. The release coincides with the launch of PeteJive.com and a heap of dates for late summer and fall including shows in, Indiana, Tennessee, Ohio, Alabama, Missouri and New Jersey. The energy of Pete Jive live is contagious and they have had opportunities to share the stage with national artists such as Slightly Stoopid, Josh Heinrichs, Badda Skat, Josh Hisle and DJ Redlox. Local favorite Chicago Farmer mentioned, “I’ve heard nothing but good things, and they were all true”.
With Juice Digits’ unique, reggae inspired, cruising bass lines, coupled with the soulful singing range and magnetic intensity of Pete Jive, this group is a breath of fresh air for listeners of all ages and interests.
