Pete & L.A.

Emcee Todd Evans

From Long Island, New York, Pete & L.A. are serving a nostalgia cocktail of Jazz, R&B and Pop hits with a modern twist.
With just a guitar and a microphone the duo captures the full essence of a song, whether a lively R&B tune or a sultry ballad. Stylizing songs, from jazz standards to soul and motown to 80s and 90s Funk and R&B up to today's hits, Pete & L.A. provide a perfect blend of nostalgic groove with a vibrant, zestful energy.
Vocalist Laurie Anne Creus (L.A.), with over a decade of experience, has been captivating audiences while performing at venues from small clubs to SXSW (South by Southwest). L.A. commits fully to the listener with her beautifully rich voice and joyful aura, feeding off of guitarist, Peter Iannacchino. Trained in jazz and a songwriter for many years in several bands, Pete has a way of turning the guitar into a complete orchestra. With six strings, he skillfully arranges every song to capture the full spectrum of movement, emotion, and groove.
Pete first grabbed the attention of L.A. while performing "Misty" at her open mic. They both shared a deep bond for jazz music and it has led them to host Jazz After Hours, a monthly jazz event at the Cinema Arts Centre. Together they seek to bring back appreciation of old school music.
