Peter Giri (Pete Kowalke)
Peter Giri is a gifted songwriter and performer, whether performing solo or with his band. Peter is also known as a masterful interpreter of others’ songs—and these interpretations are never just “covers.” You’re never going to hear the same old song you’ve heard many times before. He makes each song, from Dylan to Little Feat to Hendrix and more, his own, with variations of rhythm, vocals, and melody that bring them new life.
His infectious style of playing and soaring guitar solos, combined with an uncanny ability to create rapport with his audience, invariably bring everyone out on the dance floor, where they stay until the last note is struck.
Peter is both old school and new school at the same time, crossing generational gaps with his timeless music. At a time when we really need both heart and message, not to mention a good dose of just plain fun, Peter connects with his audience in a most meaningful way.
