Peter and lead singer Ian have been friends since they went to school together. At the age of 19, after listening to some hot jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, they decided that they had to form up a musical group immediately. Ian sang and played guitar while Pete made a drum kit out of a broken chair, a washtub and a biscuit tin and thus a band was born!

Pete and Ian both became part of various musical line-ups which eventually became the Jive Aces. Pete learned the art of swing drumming playing along to the records of Count Basie and Duke Ellington. His all-time favourite musician and entertainer is Louis Armstrong who he will talk about for hours given the chance.

His style of swing drumming is unique and drives the band along like a steam-powered locomotive.
