About the Event
From relatively humble beginnings in East London, music has enabled Pete to travel and perform all over Europe, North America, Australia and Asia.
His love of jazz was nurtured from an early age and the complexities of improvisation became a challenge to be conquered… a challenge which excites him as much today as it did in those formative years.
Awards and accolades range from winning 'most promising saxophonist' at age 18 at a competition in London organised by 'Jazz Journal' magazine to being recently awarded the 'Entertainer of the Year' award by the luxury cruise line 'Silversea'.
Over the years he has performed with many great names from both the British and American jazz scenes, ranging stylistically from Al Casey (who performed regularly with 'Fats' Waller) to modern jazz names such as John Critchenson and the late Martin Drew. He is proud to have played regularly alongside such musical luminaries as Warren Vache, Doc Cheatham, Wild Bill Davidson, Max Kaminsky, Scott Hamilton, George Chisolm, Humphrey Lyttleton and Acker Bilk. He has appeared as a guest artiste or leading his own band in jazz clubs in many cities from his native London to Paris, New York, New Orleans, Zurich, Rome, Singapore and Sydney…and many places in between.
