PEAK CITY plays their own unique interpretations of classic rock, blues and R & B....songs you know and love, but don't hear everyday. In addition, they also play their own compositions. Each of the members of the band thoroughly enjoy performing, and bring a variety of musical backgrounds and years of experience that mesh together into a solid and cohesive sound.
“There is no question the members of Peak City have music in their souls.”
— Shawn Daily - Apex Herald
“And your energy, where the hell is that coming from?”
— Frank Holt review
Larry Butterton has been singing blues and R&B and playing harmonica for many years...across the U.S. and different countries in clubs, on street corners, earthquake zones, jungles, and bars! He is a student of the music he plays and is a walking encyclopedia of R&B, blues, and rock history. Larry puts passion, love, and energy into every tune.
Tom Neuhauser is a classically and university trained musician who has played solo and with diverse bands for many years. His obvious soul for music is shown through his keyboards, saxophone, and guitar playing, as well as his lead and background vocals. Tom plays many solo gigs in addition to his role in Peak City.
Ian Cluggish's diverse musical background, energetic presence, and his deep respect for the groove all combine to bring a driving force to Peak City Band's rhythm section. His eclectic playing style, rooted in a "less is more" approach and strong vocal harmony will please any fan of live music.
Mike Harris provides the foundation of the band's sound with solid bass playing and precise timing. Mike has played bass in the Triangle since the 1970's, but says that Peak City has brought out the best - and the most challenges - in his playing.
