Pete Cater UK Jazz Legend



Premier drums are a British music legend. They get better with every passing year, a lot like me.


The UK's number one big band drummer/bandleader Pete Cater got started early when captivated by his father's records of Joe Morello, Louie Bellson, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich in early childhood. Since its London debut in 1995 the Pete Cater Big Band has toured extensively, often featuring amazingly authentic recreations of Buddy Rich's repertoire as well as being the house band for the World's Greatest Drummer concert series. The band has released three highy acclaimed CDs, 'Playing With Fire', 'Upswing' and 'The Right Time' and even appeared on ITV with Ronnie Corbett and Miranda Hart.

Pete also appears regularly with small jazz groups, including Tony Kofi's Organisation and Vasilis Xenopoulos' Wind Machine. Away from the jazz scene Pete maintains a busy schedule as a freelace player and is a highly respected educator. He currently teaches at the London Centre of Contemporary Music and has appeared at the Freddie Gee Drum Academy, the Rhythm Course and the Ultimate Drum Experience and the UK Drum Fair, of which he is honorary vice president.
