Long before Peter Tork became a legendary part of the

pre-fab pop-star phenomenon known as the The Monkees, he was a well-respected musician/artist in the burgeoning New York folk

and blues scene. Peters talent as a multi-instrumentalist (bass, guitar, keyboard, banjo and french horn) made him much in demand as a sideman/back-up artist.

Peter knocked around for several hungry years

in the mid-60s, hanging and playing with the likes of such

legendary musicians as John Phillips, Steven Stills, Dave Van Ronk,

Van Dyke Parks, Arthur Lee, and the list goes on.

Then there was that fatal call in June 1965 that would change his life forever. His friend and confidante, Steven Stills, had just auditioned for a

new TV show centering on 4 young musicians in a wacky rock

band known as "The Monkees". Steven told the producers he knew

of a person who really fit the bill. Suffice to say Peter aced the

audition and the rest is pop-history.

Peter was never satisfied with pre-fab rock fame, and even at

the Monkees pop-star heights, never forgot his roots as an artist or

a starving musician looking for a gig. He was always out jamming

with bands and learning about music that mattered. Even legend,

Jimi Hendrix, took Peter under his expansive wing, calling him The most talented Monkee. That is high praise for a musician whose vision

of folk-blues refuses to die.

Describing Peter's band is like trying to describe immaculate air.

Richard Mikuls and Arnold Jacks have played with some of the most influential recording artists of the last 50 years, such as:

Ray Charles, BB King, Hank Ballard, Rufus and Chaka Kahn,

The Pointer Sisters. you get the idea.

With Peters band of seasoned pros, Shoe Suede Blues delivers

a heart-felt soulful, unforgettable mixture of their vision of what music

and songwriting is all about.

Peter Tork and Shoe Suede Blues remind us all that the soul of music lives on.
