Pete Weiss & the Rock Band: Songs

You can check out a few songs from our self-titled debut album HERE.  And you can purchase CDs HERE.

[NOTE: the below information does not contain live links; we are keeping it here for nostalgia purposes.]

Here's a link to some MP3's from our farewell performance on November 5, 1999 at the Lizard Lounge. These were recorded by the wonderful Mr. Dave Green on a Tascam DA-88 and mixed/mastered later at Zippah. The sound quality and mix are darned good. The performances are classic live PW&RB--a bit sloppy, but spirited and spontaneous. Incidentally, the whole farewell show was recorded and mixed. Please email me and let me know if there is any interest in this document being released as a limited edition full-length CD; if there's enough interest, maybe we'll do it.

Here's a bit of info on the MP3's themselves:
