We play a wide variety of music, current to oldies. We are very careful with our volume. Audiences have commented that we have perfected a sound where people can converse and socialize without having to talk over the music. We pride ourselves on that very rare ability, as well as providing a very rewarding musical experience.
Dusty Wayne and Mr Pete preformed as part of the New Berlin Library's Perkins Memorial Performance series on August 30, 2107. They arrived well ahead of the performance to set up, were ready on time, and socialized with the audience. They preformed both covers and original compositions. They harmonized beautifully.
Response from Dusty Wayne and Mr Pete:
What a nice concert series you folks in New Berlin have created. Please keep us in mind for next year.
Dusty Wayne and Mr. Pete did a great job playing for our fundraiser. They were very accommodating and willing to play whatever people wanted to hear/sing. They kept everyone entertained all night and I’d definitely hire them again for future events!
Dusty Wayne and Mr Pete preformed as part of a company picnic on August 18, 2017. They arrived ahead of the performance time to set up, were ready on time, and socialized with the audience. The theme for the picnic and they adapted well with music selection. They also have a large selection of music that can be requested. The music was at a good volume and good quality. We have already booked them for next year!
Response from Dusty Wayne and Mr Pete:
This event was a lot of fun. They asked us to do a "60's set", because they had a 60's theme for the event. I looked up all the top 10 hits of every year for the whole decade and we performed a bunch of the songs. I think it went over well.
What to Expect
We are very flexible in our approach to providing entertainment. We always ask for the expectations of those who hire us, and try to accommodate those expectations as best we can. We also always are receptive to feedback about out sound....Toooooo Loud?...Too Soft?.. just let us know, and we will adjust to your liking...but isn't that the way it should be?
Dusty Wayne and Mr Pete have been performing together for the last five years, and have played more then a hundred gigs.......from parties to bars to American Legions to outdoor Festivals.....continually updating and evolving and creating...onto our fifth CD of original material....... BUT..and this is a BIG BUT....we have a huge cache of material we can tap into, so we can really pull out a lot of tunes. We have even developed a double binder of lyrics/tunes that we bring with us to gigs, and if the mood is right, we open the mike up to the crowd, if so willing, to be part of the band...a little "Live Karaoke with a Live Band!"...always entertaining..
Additional Booking Notes
We have a very small set-up that can fit into some very small situations, but have plenty of amplification to fill a larger room with a full sound. We can even downsize, and squeeze into a little corner, when necessary.....and we can keep the quality top-notch..... with the drum machine, we can keep the music moving and push it, as needed.

Influences & Inspiration
Ol' Dusty and I (Mr Pete) go way back....so we have been influenced by so many musical trends and performers. From the Ballad singers of the Fifties, to the British Invasion, and the Folk Movement of the Sixties......the Rock and Roll of the Seventies...the New Wave of the Eighties...to the Dance beats of the Nineties...and all the re -combinations of all those previously mentioned influences that are the source of this new century's music.....then throw in a little country....
Just an accessible outlet...That's it
