Petey Hop returns to Purdy Street for his usual Tavern residency. You can catch him performing his live acoustic set on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30.
After studying his teenage years with ex Peter Frampton Alumni, Ed Monteleone, who opened his eyes to Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and others, Pete went on to study at G.I.T., eventually graduating with honors. Through his studies Pete was able to create a well developed fingerpicking style and deep understanding of the roots of music.
Working mostly in the trio format for over 15 years, on over 3500 live dates, Pete is able to communicate his roots, yet convey a style all his own. Pete is equally comfortable as a solo acoustic performer, small combo rocker or big ensemble player.
Pete has a huge appreciation for all styles of music, from Hank to Hendrix, Duke to Dylan, Bach to Buck, Son House to Son Volt or Muddy to Miles. Steeped in electric blues from T-Bone through Stevie Ray, with a good understanding of early country blues as well, Pete has a deep well to draw from. A big fan of early country music by Hank, Johnny and Jimmie with a healthy dose of Bakersfield, Outlaw and Alternative Country to thicken the roux.
