The room is quiet.

People are still filing in, shuffling about, getting to their seats. Everyone's watching the stage, waiting to see what comes out of the young guys before them.

Suddenly a soulful, piercing voice strikes through the air. Everyone's stunned. No one expected such a powerhouse of a vocalist from the kind-eyed pianist sitting front and center.

But before anyone has time to reflect, the drums, guitars and horns kick in - and the crowd is movin' and groovin' in their seats. People jump up and start dancing. A few moments ago there was silence. Now there's just fun and music.

That's the Pete Ayres Band. Pop, blues and soul merge to create a sound that's both fresh and timeless. Meaningful lyrics shed insight into love, life and everything in between.
