The John Patrick Peters Band is speaking to all generations, a native of the Lonestar State, now calling “Prison City” Jackson Michigan home. His musical platform is Rock with a Blues message that’s simple: shake the cage and see to it that the heart and soul of JPP is felt world wide!
At just 21 years old, JPP has already traveled a path that has taken him from the bluesy depths of Rock n Roll to the top of his game as a songwriter, guitar player and ultimately, a believer. His attitude and work ethic reflect a mantra that says anything is possible if you just put your mind to it. “Too many people go through life asleep, going day to day without goals, dreams, hopes, or ambitions,” JPP is living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry.
By aligning himself with unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself attitude with a signature sound, bassist/Vocals Eddy Bitner, drummer Marty King, and keyboardist/Guitar/Vocals TC Delisle, have helped to define the landscape of today’s rocking blues music scene. JPP has built a foundation with support due to his relentless work ethic, talent, and stylistically felt songs - suggesting a range of influences from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Joe Bonamassa, Rory Gallagher, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Gary Rossington, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Joe Walsh, Prince, and Brian Setzer. Along with the mentorship of legendary Jackson Michigan’s “God Father” of jazz Benny Poole, JPP has a wide range of musical background. Not to mention, he is a full time music major.
Inspired by some kind words offered up by legendary guitar rocker Ted Nugent, JPP kicked the doors off Sonic Landscapes Recording Studio for his first session. A two tract demo is the result from Uncle Ted’s advice “Get your ass in the studio and get your feet wet!” Like a bullet shot from one of “The Nuge’s” many firearms, JPP hit his mark in the Jackson Mi studio where “The Motor City Madman” himself laid down tracks.
