About The Artist
Peter Petty is a Sacramento, CA based band leader that tests (and coins) the adage “There are no small rooms.” Known as Da Man wit’ da Flop and charged with the singular mission of reinterpreting music that scintillates, syncopates, (and sometimes even educates), Mr. Petty swings out with the frenetic elegance of a Tasmanian devil in a tuxedo, leading some of the finest stewards of traditional jazz in the Sacramento area in the jumpin’est, jivin’ist, great-gosh-alive-inist Swing experience available today!
The incomparable jazz tumult that is Peter Petty is goin’ be mad-muggin’ you upside your head, and rattlin’ your bones back down the other side, as you tear it up to the most sinfully scintillated splendiferosity you EVER hoped to syncopate. He piggybacks 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, Louis Prima, Roy Orbison, Shirley Bassey, Tom Waits, and David Bowie, singing every note of his 3 2/3 octave range with inexhaustible power and captivating control.
Throwing out novelized lyrics, and a steadily growing repertoire of original tunes, it’s an infectious, eclectic, electric, acoustic mash-up that not only connects the dots between seemingly disparate musical genres, and artists, but does it with an originally adventurous and unpredictably hilarious theatricality that entertains the “swell” out of audiences of all ages.
