Handsome Pete is a five piece Rock/Alternative band arising from Lansing, MI. Our new full length album, Dancing For Nickels, is now available in physical CD form. Complete with 10 songs, full art work, and a great range of songs, you will want to make sure to get a copy. All thanks to Ryan Wert of Elm St. Recording.
HP formed in early 2015, primarily learning covers and shortly gigging as a cover band a few months after. With great feedback from audiences, we decided to begin the writing proces! And we still gig as a cover band! Book us for your next event! Material ranges from 80's pop, classic rock, 90's alternative, and current radio hits.
Taking upbeat acoustic guitar songs Aaron wrote, strife with catchy lyrical content, Adam electrified the music with heavy guitar riffs, solos, and implementing bar chords, while Kirk and Eleu energized a tight rhythm section with obvious metal influences. Justin Deason agreed to work with the band after catching a live performance, adding his leads on finally giving the band it's extra driving force. Contextualizing an alternative sound with a heavy rock vibe, Handsome Pete is a true homage to the genre of Rock - N - Roll.
