Bio for Glos based pianist, singer and DJ Pete Butler
Pete specialises in piano and piano/vocals with the option of using superb backing tracks and/or live kick drum pedal for further sonic dimension and variety.
He has crafted a hugely versatile style that blends traditional style with contemporary substance to create sound that transcends genres.
Huge experience performing in busy piano bars has afforded an unbelievable song library! – check out his SongList page
Pete’s classical training as a child developed a solid musical grounding. A movement into pop and rock eventually led a journey into jazz, swing, soul and blues. Opportunities to develop playing styles by playing regularly in a jazz/swing/blues trio opened up new creativity, sounds and chops.
Although this appreciation of jazz has moved Pete in differing area’s he is still more than happy to blast out the pop and rock classics at every opportunity or just entertain with background classical solo piano.
Pete uses the best equipment including Yamaha CP stage pianos, QSC amplification (K8, K12, KW181) with full lighting available. Very high quality PA and Digital Piano can be supplied with the assurances of full public liability insurance and electrical safety PAT testing certification!
