The uniqueness of Peter’s performance is his ability to play the walking bass and harmonies accompaniment with his guitar on top of singing and scat improvising.

Having studied classical music in his native Hungary for many years Peter abandoned Bartok for Beatles on leaving University and formed his own band playing his own music.

A growing interest in Jazz prompted the development of his current style which is an unusual combination of walking bass and harmonies on guitar while singing lyrics or scat ideal music to make your special day that bit more special.

" Peter performed at our wedding on 13th June 2008 at the Udny Arms Newburgh. Peter was excellent. He met with us prior to the wedding and although we had decided we wanted a couple of tunes that he was not familiar with this did not pose a problem to him at all. He learned them for us and we were absolutely delighted that we got exactly what we wanted. Both his musical and vocal talent were admired by everyone. I would thoroughly recommend Peter to anyone who wants a professional sound at their wedding. "
