Now residing in South Carolina but originally from East London, Pete has performed extensively over Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. In more recent years he has carved a niche for himself being one of very few jazz musicians to reach a wider audience by performing as a Headline Guest Entertainer on luxury cruise ships. His act focuses particularly on the 'Swing era' with music and stories from that era never failing to ensure an enthralling evening's entertainment. He was recently awarded the 'Entertainer of the Year' award by the Italian six star luxury cruise line 'Silversea'. Pete has performed at private parties for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales at Highgrove House and for Sir Michael Caine, Mick Jagger and venues such as London’s The Royal Festival Hall, New York’s Lincoln Centre, The Orient Express, The House of Lords and Scottish Baronial castles.
