VicsGigs are very excited to announce a solo show by Pete Jones as part of our Little Embers Sessions. Pete is best known for his own band, Tiger Moth Tales and as keyboard player in Prog legends Camel since 2016. The show will take place at the Talbot Hotel, New Street, Oundle, Northamptonshire PE8 4EA on Thursday 18th August.

Pete Jones Pete was born on October 6th 1980. At fifteen months Pete lost his sight due to Retinoblastoma. From an early age he was into all things musical and at the age of four had his first piano.

Throughout his school years he took part in all kinds of musical activities in school plays, music festivals and concerts. One of the highlights of his young life was winning the junior final of BBC’s ‘Song for Christmas’ in 1988. Around this time he started to be aware of the music in the charts and was also influenced by music his parents listened to. Artists such as Phil collins, Paul McCartney and George Michael were big influences, along with bands including Queen, Genesis, the Beatles and the Carpenters.

Pete studied music and music technology and performed in bands singing and playing jazz, swing, rock and classical pieces. He specialised in the piano and recorder, achieving grade 8 in both. Other instruments include keyboards, guitars and bass, alto sax, whistles and various percussion. Also he became more confident with vocals.

Since then Pete has continued to write, record and perform music, firstly as part of duo 2 To Go with friend and vocalist Emma Paine (They were finalists in the BBC's Star For A Night in 2001 and ITV’s The X Factor in 2004 after which they went on to appear in the National Arena X Factor Tour which followed in 2005), then with his own band, Tiger Moth Tales, and as a solo artist. In 2016 Prog legends Camel recruited multi-instrumentalist Peter for keyboard duties for a Japanese Music Festival and he has played with them ever since.

Pete is a very special live performer and this is a show not to be missed.
