Uncle John’s old Gibson is what got things started. Over 30 years and a few dozen guitars, keyboards, computers and assorted real and virtual instruments later, the itch is still there. His widely varied resumé includes church organist, guitar and piano teacher, an Emmy winning composer for jingles, films, corporate productions and websites, lead vocalist, and performer on acoustic and electric guitar and keys. Pete's also in demand as a session player, arranger and producer for recordings and clients of all kinds, a lot of which are done via FTP/broadband these days. He’s also got decent chops on bass (upright and electric), harmonica, mandolin (OK...he’s no Bill Monroe), and french horn (no kidding). Pete regularly performs a solo acoustic act at some of the biggest resorts in the midwest, playing a mix of clever, off-the-beaten-path covers and originals. He's played with and/or opened for such diverse artists as CeCe Peniston, Humble Pie, The Romantics, Rick Derringer, Edwin McCain, Aaron Lewis (Staind), Hootie & The Blowfish and more. Pete's put out 2 live records, "Live At Latitude" and "Flaws & All: Live At The Pink Pony", and is working on his first solo studio record, hoping to have it done in summer 2013. In his spare time, he golfs, skis, mountain bikes and swims in Lake Michigan whenever it’s over 50 degrees.
