Loads of new performance dates have been added 2023-2024

Looks like I’ll be spending loads of time on a plane coming up. December has me off to Phoenix for a clinic and concert at MCC college Dec 7. And I may as well hit Las Vegas on my return for a dbl header Cirque Du Soleil shows my friends play in.

Then I’m off to Argentina to play in the This Is Michael tribute in Mendoza and Buenos Aires and immediately jetting off to Milan for a new tribute with Wendel Jackson.

New Years Eve find my Full Steam band in Tacoma WA to play the Spanish Ballroom.

It looks like the early new year is quiet before things ramp up in April for a UK tour with some odds and ends attached.

July-Aug will again be reserved for my local Portland band Full Steam for outdoor festivals.

In October I’ll be spending a lot of time in Austria guesting with Sascha Pazdera MJ Tribute with some added outside solo gigs including playing with a brass band for the first time. Should be bonkers fun.

The Tigress CD is out now!

Jim Peterik has always loved a musical challenge and pursuing new ideas, so the fresh idea for this album really inspired him. He made a wishlist of artists he wanted to work with and crafted musical ideas that could work for their styles. In Jim’s words, “I discovered that I needed to write songs that reflected the female perspective more than the male. It was gratifying when talented women from all over the world, heroes of mine such as Janet Gardner (Vixen), CathyRichardson (Jefferson Starship), Jenniffer Batten, Mindi Abair, Kate French,Kimi Hayes, Chez Kane, Rosa Laricchiuta (Black Rose Maze, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), and so many others gave me the big thumbs up! Up-and-comers likeLindsay Kent, Leslie Hunt, Chloe Lowery, Marine Lacoste, and so many others all added their unique personalities to make this a landmark album in my career.”
