Musical Entertainment

A classically trained boy treble, Peter says the highlight of his early career was singing Pie Jesu from Gabrielle Faure’s Requiem directed by Peter Godfrey with the Dorian Choir accompanied by the Auckland Philharmonia, recorded live to the radio.

With Max Cryer’s guidance, Peter went from classical singer to pop artist with appearances on Happen Inn, The Ray Columbus Show and Town & Around. His live performances culminated at Super Pop 70 in Western Springs. Peter met and chatted with Prince Charles and Princess Anne that night. His treble voice broke in 1972, now a baritone.

Fast forward to 1996. Peter moved to Waiheke Island founding Chocolate Fish becoming a popular choice for weddings, jazz festivals, birthdays, and corporate events. They’ve been the opening act for the 2011/2013 biennial Sculpture of the Gulf events and recorded two live albums: Chocolate Fish – Live at Vino Vino (1997) and Scandalicious (2012).

Chocolate Fish morphed in 2013 and became The Buzz Bars, continuing to delight their customers with wonderful music. Jazz, Latin swinging blues or groovy pop. Whatever the preferred style, The Buzz Bars will have you moving and grooving.

Not restricted to Waiheke, The Buzz Bars are also a popular choice for Auckland and further afield.

So be it a wedding, birthday, corporate or charity function, talk to Peter about creating the perfect musical ambience at your next special event.
