Playing anything from Rock to Pop,  Blues to Classical,  Jazz to Country,  or Religious to Originals,  Pete,  plays it all with his Hohner Chromatic Harmonica and has been for over 35 years.

With harmonica influences of Stevie Wonder,  Toots Thielemans,  Larry Adler,  Jerry Murad and The Harmonicats,  and Neil Young,  as well as the variety of music genres and interests,  he's got them all together with his own virtuoso style.

You can hear him playing "The National Anthem" at gymnastics meets where he's judging and anywhere he takes his boat "Seahorse".

He's even played Christmas Carols in the New Jersey Statehouse (Governor's Office) for Gov. James E. McGreevey and you may have heard him play the National Anthem at Temple's Liacouras Center for the '03 NCAA Gymnastics Championships as well as a Trenton Thunder Baseball game in August '04 & September '05.

He's recently been working on sets with Jeffrey Fadden (nylon string guitar) of standards and (not so standard) songs with a hint of jazz and Brazilian style.

Along with "Band-in-a-Box" software,  he's programmed accompaniments to play many songs spanning over 100 years,  from Sinatra, Beatles,  standards from the 30's & 40's,  Broadway & Show tunes,  campfire songs,  patriotic songs,  Christmas & Holiday tunes,  to children's songs and many karaoke accompaniments as well.

He was very excited to be a performer for The Garden State Harmonica Festival '04 along with other harmonica greats!
