Since 1995, The Pete Cater Big Band has been thrilling UK audiences with its no-nonsense hard swinging approach to big band jazz music.


Drummer Pete Cater describes his musical policy thus; “It’s present day, high energy big band jazz. We draw inspiration from the great bands of the past without falling into the nostalgia trap, and at the same time keep an eye in a forward direction without losing sight of the core values that made big band music great in the first place”.


As well as showcasing some of the top young professionals on the London scene, Pete Cater also employs a team of outstanding arrangers who take his outlines and ideas and turn them into superbly crafted scores.


The band has toured throughout the UK and has appeared at many of the country’s top jazz festivals. In 2001 they were voted “Band of the Year” in the British Jazz awards and “Critics Choice” the following year.
