Influences: Meat Loaf, Status Quo, Too Many To Mention
Established in 1996 and acclaimed by Meat Loaf him self to be the best Tribute to him in the business Peat Loaf is well known thought out Europe as Thee Meat Loaf tribute act. Now Relocated and based in UK after 7 very successful years performing in the top venues in Benidorm Spain as a Duo. Pete has now reformed his band and is available once again through out the UK with a 7 piece 100% Live outfit performing a mind blowing 2 hour plus set featuring all Meat's classics and a few new one's along with the Duo show he was performing in Benidorm witch runs for one hour along with Disco before and after with Karaoke to round things off Peat Loaf can cater or any event or occasion big or small
Before moving to Spain Pete performed with a 7 piece 100% live band (of the same name Peat Loaf) touring the UK, Ireland and some parts of Europe but the massive over heads and stress of keeping a show that big on the road and some bad management and promotion moves forced him to go down the more compact road
During his time in Benidorm he must on a bad week have played to over 1000 people all year round from all over the UK and Ireland,Pete says "i reckon over the 7 years i was there i must have performed to well on half a million holiday makers".
I really need a new challenge now as i am hard working (i was performing around 572 shows a year) and very much a perfectionist but i am not able to achieve that in in Spain any more,
I have met Meat 4 times to date and he rates me as the best tribute act to him in the business to the extent that some years ago Meat did an interview with The Sun news paper where he said he wanted me to play the part of him in the Biog movie about his life" To Hell And Back". unfortunately that never happened (did i mention the bad management and promotion moves).
What i am starting to do now as well as the full band is to target the smaller venues, that would like Peat Loaf to play for them but these days with things being so tight can't afford the full band.
Ok, what i'm going to do as well as the full band is what i was doing over in Spain with just myself and a female backing singer, The show runs for an hour and 15 mins before and after the show with Karaoke to round the night off the backing trax i use are 100% unique to me recorded by my band back in the Scotland so you get the feel of actually listening to a live band and not just watching the glorified Karaoke Tributes that use karaoke trax with fade outs in Spain.
My website is www.peatloaf.com please take the time to have a look, there you will find pic's live videos of my band and if you look at the guest book you will see reviews and comments left by people who have seen me perform and many who come back and see me time and time again. I have added links to an interview and a live cutback performance we did last year on National Television in Scotland
