Peter Petty is a band leader that tests (and coins) the adage “There are no small rooms, just louder ones.” Truly the consummate entertainer, he will thrill as a duo with just a guitar or piano, or build up the band all the way to his 11 piece "Titans of Terpsichore!" full swing orchestra, equally engaging audiences from one to 10,000. Experienced, professional, and remarkably versatile, Peter Petty is eager to work with you to deliver exactly the program you desire for your event. He is charged with the singular mission of reinterpreting music that scintillates, syncopates, and even educates, swinging out with the frenetic elegance of a Tasmanian devil in a tuxedo, leading some of the finest stewards of traditional jazz around to piggyback on the colossal, still-reverberating shoulders of such giants of the genre as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Mildred Bailey, Cab Calloway and Joe Williams. Then he leaps over to stomp on, and ride the coat-tails of undisputable legends like Ray Charles, Bobby Darin, Louis Prima, Roy Orbison, Shirley Bassey, Tom Waits, and David Bowie (including nods to Justin Timberlake, and even Jay-Z on the way), singing every note of his 3 2/3 octave range with inexhaustible power and captivating control. Throwing out novelized lyrics, and even a few original tunes (not to mention a few costume changes, as well), it's an infectious, eclectic, electric-acoustic mash-up that not only connects the dots between seemingly disparate musical genres, and artists, but does so with an adventurous and hilarious theatricality that entertains the “swell” out of audiences of all ages. You have never seen a show quite like this, and chances are, you too will join in the repeated standing ovations that this fabulous and unique group is becoming accustomed to receiving. You quite simply cannot go wrong with Peter Petty. Ask for him by name!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"Well what can I say about Peter Petty! He is so easy to work with, very reasonably priced and so amazingly entertaining. We hired Peter to play at my clients wedding and he rocked the house. He is full of energy and made the planning part so easy. He is very responsive and easy to get a hold of. He accommodated the brides song request and was flexible staying a little longer when the timing for the wedding got off track. I highly recommend Peter Petty and his band for any wedding, event or party. He is a classic entertainer."

"Experienced you ... last night...YOU are the ENTERTIANER OF THE YEAR!"

"Peter Petty ... brought the jazz era back to life for us! I felt physically transported to a 1930s speak-easy in Chicago, with Cab Calloway singing "Hi De Ho" over an audience eager to sing and dance along with him. This isn't a band for the weak of heart who want to sit, watch and golf-clap. This is a band of pure energy and talent, carrying the spirit of the greatest music ever made."

"WOW!!! This is the word I sum it all with. The show was packed with swingn' music keeping the dancers going right up till the end. In between songs his comedy will keep you entertained. I recommend looking up where they will be next and treat yourself to a really good time."

"Once again, ... I was treated to a seeming effortless mastery of music and song that refreshingly treated the borders between musical genres with the respect they deserve--none. Whether borrowing from the song books of the Sons of the Pioneers, Cab Calloway, or Bobby Darin, you make the song and the stage your own. You want music? You want entertainment? You want Peter Petty!"
Dr. Ron Mihordin
Sacramento, Ca

"Peter is exceptional in everything he gives an audience! The exuberance, versatility and originality is equally as impressive as his talent! What is so wonderful about Peter, is that his performances span the generations. Whether you're a senior citizen who recalls listening to the Rat Pack on the AM car radio, or you're a music lover in your 20s, Peter will give you a performance you won't soon forget! I can't wait to see his next performance!"

"... one of the most excellent shows I've ever witnessed. The rich Art Deco repertoire,great arrangements, high caliber musicianship, and wild, free-swinging, focused energy - the essence of vintage jazz and entertainment."

Peter Petty is an absolute delight! We were privileged to have him play at our wedding in a little mountain town of Pinecrest, CA-at both our ceremony and reception-and he gave us so much more of an experience than we ever expected! He accommodated our unique song requests and interpreted some of the key pieces into our preferred music style of bluegrass - we're talking, 'Jurassic Park Theme' played beautifully on a steel guitar! He was always professional and friendly, rolled with the punches, and kept the energy going from start to finish. His personal touch was evident in every song and the bands' talent, look, and vibe gave us an unforgettable night!

Absolutely fantastic band! Peter and his band played at my husband's 50th birthday party in Lake Tahoe. All ages danced the entire time they played. My only regret from the awesome party was that I didn't start it earlier-we had to cut the music at nightfall. We've recommended Peter to many friends and can't wait to book him again!

Peter Petty was Perfect! About a month from my wedding, my original band did not work out so I had to either settle with a DJ or find another band...quick! I decided not to settle and just hope that a 20's band would be available on short notice. After getting turned down by several bands due to my last minute request, I became discouraged. I came across the Peter Petty Band and thought, "these guys are perfect but there's no way these guys are available." I was right... BUT, Peter moved a few things around and made it possible! We hired his team for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. His team was AMAZING! Peter was such a showman and gentleman. We are fans!
