Pete, a native Southern Californian, first started as a guitarist then switched to bass in order to join his first band. Pete has been at his craft for decades, studying under such renowned bassists as jazz great Bob Magnusson and Nashville mainstay Charlie Chadwick. Notable San Diego-area bands that Pete has been a member of include The M-80s (a costumed 80’s band), Spectrum (a casino-style show band), and Matrix (a straight up rock ’n roll band). Pete most often wields a 5-string Fender Jazz Bass, but you may see other basses appear from time to time. For the most part, amplification is via road-tested Carvin equipment.
