The goal of a great musician is to bring the best possible music experience to your event. Peter is a seasoned entertainer with the extraordinary talent of being able to pick the exact styles of music to make your celebration a success. He has extensive training in classical music but is also right at home with rock, pop, jazz, new age or even ragtime and boogie-woogie. If you need a piano bar feel to liven up the crowd, then he'll knock it out of the park for you. If you need beautiful ambient music to lend elegance and style, then he's the one to use. He will use a piano if you provide one but can also bring all the equipment necessary to give a great show including a full PA system and a fantastic electronic keyboard setup that sounds exactly like a concert piano or a full orchestra..

PETER'S BIO: Peter is a native to Southern California and a multi-faceted performer with a long and successful career in the music industry. Starting piano lessons at the ridiculously early age of 4, he has been thrilling crowds around the world as a keyboardist, guitarist and singer for over 20 years. Back in the 80's his rock band opened for such stellar acts as Kiss, Cheap Trick, Foreigner, Warrant and The Tubes. Since he was only in high school when he started, he often had to fly out to a show after school and return early the next morning in time for classes. In 1983, Peter developed a relationship with the guys in Journey, The Baby's and REO Speedwagon when he hooked up with Jonathan, Mike (Mugs) & Tané Cain on Tané's album which later became part of the soundtrack for Arnold Schwarzenegger's blockbuster, "The Terminator". Peter has an extensive music education from Berklee College of Music, the Boston Music Conservatory, USC and the California Music Academy in Fullerton. He has had significant training as a classical performer and is just as at home with an orchestra as his is with a rock band. While living in Boston from 1999 – 2003 he performed over 100 shows with the Boston Pops. He has performed in over 16 countries with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Italian, Australian, German & English National Orchestras. He's performed to sold out crowds at Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, the Sydney Opera House and the Sistine Chapel. He even performed for Pope John Paul II, in St. Peters Square, Rome in 2003. Peter currently is working as a solo artist as well as being the keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist for the World's Premier Journey Tribute Act, ARRIVAL. Peter has also recently been working with Frank Stallone and just completed Frank's "Fully Franked Tour" in Australia. In summary, if you are looking to hire the consummate entertainer for your event, Peter Burt is your guy!

"Music is my life. I don't just play music; it is simply who I am. I welcome the opportunity to help make your event spectacular and can promise that you will not be disappointed. Thank YOU for the opportunity"

Peter Burt

TESTIMONIAL: "In May of 2008, Peter Burt was contracted by Hills For Everyone, a non-profit organization, to entertain at a wine tasting fundraiser. 150 people were in attendance and Peter provided the musical entertainment for the entire afternoon and evening. In addition to being a phenomenal musician, Peter is amazingly flexible and can really read a crowd. He began the evening with classical as the guests meandered their way through food and wine stations. He then kicked it up a notch with some popular favorites including some vocals. By the evening, Peter had such an amazing rapport with the crowd, they began making requests. Before the night had ended, Peter had moved into classic Rock and Roll. The crowd went wild! Needless to say, the Board of Hills For Everyone as well as the organizers of the event were extremely pleased with Peter's performance, professionalism and scope of work. We feel that Peter made a wonderful event spectacular. We can honestly say that Peter Burt had a hand in helping us raise an unprecedented $15,000 that evening. Thank you, Peter!"

We would most definately hire Peter again. From the booking all the way through to the end of the event he was there for us! He accommodated all of our needs and really knew how to work the event. Peter is so personable and so very down to earth, we felt as if we have known him for a long long time. If you want a good performner and a good time....book Peter!
