The members of Hungarian jazz/pop/funk group Peet Project are still in their early twenties, but they have already released four albums – in addition to a “Debut Artist of the Year” title garnered at the Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival (2013). Their original music is a seductive and eclectic blend, reflecting influences encompassing Brian Culbertson (with whom they produced the opening track of their second CD), Candy Dulfer, George Duke, Earth Wind and Fire and The Rippingtons, among others. The group’s driving force is violinist, composer and producer Peter “Peet” Ferencz. He gives the band its unique sound through his use of violin as a lead instrument in an equivalent role to saxophone or keyboards. In 2014, Peet began to work on their most complex album to date, “Love”, with former bassist Dávid Szedlár and a brand new line-up comprising Attila Závodi (sax), Olivér Magán (keyboards), and twin brothers Martin and Marcell Gudics (bass and drums). This album showcases more energy, more vocals and a lot of Funk, Soul and Pop mingled with vintage stylistic flavors reminiscent of 70s and 80s music. The first single “Jazz & Wine” made it to the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 30.

Charleston, South Carolina has contributed mightily to the history of the country, especially with regard to African American culture, the crucible of jazz. No longer the secular, profane novelty it was once considered, JAZZ has evolved to a spiritual, organic life force that embodies all that is good about the American experiment.

We hope you’ll join us on Labor Day, Sep 2-4 in Charleston to Celebrate the Roots of Jazz at the The Lowcountry Jazz Festival.

Artists on this festival Brian Culbertson, Will Downing, Nick Colionne, Selina Albright, Jackiem Joyner, Peabo Bryson, Jeff Lorber, Chuck Loeb, Everette Harp. Get tickets here.
