TONIGHT: PETER PETTY REVIEW

You may remember Peter Petty from Elektra recording artists Papa’s Culture and Columbia Records’ Cake.  He was also one of the founding members of the Valdo  Herby tribute band, “Swing This!”  Peter sang with the Sacramento Opera  through 8 seasons, retiring that tenure to join the Harley White Jr. Orchestra. With the Peter Petty review he eclectically mixes prohibition era Jazz with Country (& Western- both kinds-), 40’s-60’s orchestral Pop, Rhythm & Blues into Early Rock & Roll & even 70’s Pop into 2000s Hip Hop (hey, Man, that even rhymed) for a whirling dervish of high jiving, hip diving, sky striving, great music, and amusing theatricality! You’re really going to want to see this show.
