Insight: Peter Petty On Performing


Peter Petty isn’t just a musician, he’s a performer. Depending on the music he’s performing, you might see him in a spacesuit, a purple wig or even a gorilla costume. But this Thursday you’ll most likely see him dressed in a clean white tuxedo as he leads his 11-piece Prohibition Era jazz band at the Crocker Art Museum’s first concert in its “Jazz in the Courtyard” summer music series. The museum is presenting a “jazz through the ages” theme this year and Petty joins us to talk more about the concert series and his many musical ventures.
