Saturday 23 August
By the third song, Pete and his 10-piece swing band had the crowd at Newmarket races hooked.
The Aussie with the big heart and the even bigger fan base performed a combination of his own classics, some new material and an even better selection of swing and RnB classics.

Highlights included his rendition of Human Nature by Michael Jackson and Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder and of course his best-seller Mysterious Girl - which sounded remarkably cook with a three-piece horn section.
With 20 years in the industry, new dad Pete has a very natural ability of engaging with the audience and keeping the banter going, but it was undoubtedly his set list which stole the show.

Songs from his new album, Big Night, have a funky jazz and blue vibe, which went down well with the dancing crowd.
It’s a direction and genre of song that clearly suits him.
Saturday night’s show, which concludes Newmarket Nights for the year, was Pete’s warm-up for his UK tour which starts next month, arriving at the Ipswich Regent on September 28.
