Tim HeywoodPresenter & Producer, Journalist, Hope FM

“Pete is an entertaining performer, adapting either to an intensely listening audience (which he prefers – who wouldn’t) or to a busy, noisy pub crowd where he is the human jukebox sitting in the corner.
He’s lively and full of anecdotes, while the music can be haunting, engaging, slapstick and /or raucous, depending on mood, atmosphere and environment.
A Pete Christie concert is always memorable, enjoyable and good.” June 8, 2011

Tim Heywood’s Music Blog – Pete Christie Live @ The Thomas Tripp Christchurch

February 12th, 2011

After a fun Pete Christie music event at The Thomas Tripp, Tim Heywood, one of the hardest working Bournemouth ‘gigster’/ reviewer / Hope FM radio presenter / judge at DUMA / musician / had time to focus on his informative Local Music Scene blog.

(worth reading if you were at a gig, or especially, if you missed a gig)


Mr Christie wows the Tripp

After doing a bit of delivery running around, I land at the gig that I started with. Pete is on form mainly just playing his guitar unaccompanied by the normally ever-present loop pedal.

Even so he is entertaining not just with the songs, but the overall presence – looking around for people to pick on, yet always making himself the butt of the joke, throwing in stories and anecdotes to boot.

I won’t mention some of the outrageous items Pete’s done tonight – those that are also here will know what I’m referring to – however as ever he finishes with an increasingly extended Easy Come Easy Go, using the loop pedal to full multi-voice effect.

If one hasn’t had a chance to experience Mr Christie in one of these up close and personal gigs, please make a point of doing so real soon.

He is playing at Mr Kyps soon, and is totally able to fill that stage with sound and quips, however it is with the close, visible audience that I enjoy Pete the most.
