Pete Neighbour has been a professional musician for over twenty years - even though it makes him feel old to admit it! He has performed extensively in concert halls, hotels, clubs and on cruise liners throughout Europe, America, Australia and the Far East.
Although a classically trained musician, he now performs mainly in small group, jazz influenced settings which give him the freedom to demonstrate his considerable command of the instrument.
Constantly in demand in a variety of settings, he has performed privately for parties at Highgrove for His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and is a favourite with Michael Caine and Mick Jagger. He is repeatedly in attendance at many high profile show business and aristocratic weddings and functions.
Widely respected throughout the International jazz scene, he has performed both with his own band and as a guest artiste in jazz clubs in Paris, London, New York, New Orleans, Zurich, Munich, Rome, Singapore and Sydney.
Pete is very popular in the Corporate entertainment sphere and he frequently travels worldwide for product launches, parties, exhibitions and cabaret spots, and, in this idiom, has performed on the ‘Orient Express’, in Scottish Baronial castles, French Chateaux, the Tower of London and the House of Lords.
He has extensive experience in television and radio broadcasting in both his native United Kingdom and abroad. He is also deeply committed to music education and has given master classes and led jazz workshops on numerous occasions.
His current album ‘Friends and Neighbour’ was released in May 2005 and is available directly from Pete or through his website.
The old St John's Church in Old Harlow, Essex has become a popular venue for high-quality jazz.
The venue is set-out in the half-round theatre style which enable a good view and, more importantly, a great sound.
