Pete Zaiatz


Currently with Pilots of the Carribean. Acoustic for open mics with a few friends. Tailored it towards a Jimmy Buffet vibe with some acoustic classic rock included. Can you say Troprock?

Also jamming with a team at my work two or three days a month doing classic rock. I get to break out the electrics and have some fun.
Previously with Fine By Friday (://./FineByFriday)

52 yr old rhythm player (Daughter says it’s really 5.2). Been playing at it since the early 80's. Never really had the time or the drive to play out and frankly, 2AM loadouts are not appealing to me. Looking for other people in the Groton, Lowell, Fitchburg area who like me, have a real life and real obligations but want to get together and jam or play an occasional gig or two. Summer parties and backyard cookouts and jams. No Stress, just fun. It’s only a hobby and I have no expectations of touring the world on a wing and a song. Into Blues and Blues based rock, Country, Troprock and some Alternative stuff. I'm pretty open minded as far a music goes. But always looking to play something that gets people into a fun, relaxed mode. Listening to a lot of Tom Petty, Bob Seger with some Kenny Chesney and Buffett.
