About

Peter Dalzell

Peter Dalzell Keyboards/vocals- I was born and raised in Victoria and loved music as far back as I can remember. We always had a piano and I was drawn to the keyboard at a very early age. I started playing in Victoria bands at 15, continued throughout high school and university, followed by a couple of tours of duty on the western Canada club circuit before settling again in beautiful Victoria.One day in Victoria I was approached by a couple of musicians from a Vancouver band called New Breed (a few years after Billy) saying that they needed a keyboard player, that “they regularly played in Victoria” and asked me to try out. This worked for me. I joined the band and they never returned to Victoria again. The New Breed of that time featured the talented Joani Bye. In the late seventies I played in various bands in Vancouver ranging diverse styles including R&B, funk, show lounge and even some country.In the early eighties I had the good fortune to be part of the dynamic funk band, Incognito, featuring Rosalind Keene and Joe Chapel.
I then took a sharp turn in the road (for about 20 years), stopped playing music professionally and settled down, married with two children and a straight job.Late in 2003, serendipity brought me out of hibernation to play with Billy and the boys.I am enjoying the gift of playing with outstanding musicians who are all great guys. I love the chemistry and energy and the way the band connects with the audience.Everyone has a great time!We always get people up dancing.Check it out !
