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
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.
Chris Kennedy is often hidden behind his massive drum kit and cymbals; he is a monster on percussion. Chris is a perfectionist of rhythm and timing, and his unique ideas of ''the beat" enhances and drives the rest of the band to play their best. His approach to our sound inspires all of us!
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.
Kevin Kidd 's lead and slide guitar playing is influenced by the best guitarists of the last 60 years...but he interprets the sounds in his head to enhance the sound of the band - and how! His amazing lead playing and work ethic continues to knock out audiences and his band mates.
