Peter Mayer Returns to the Historic Armory

Guitarist and Songwriter Performs Live on January 15

Peter Mayer, the well loved lead guitarist for Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer band, returns to The Studios of Key West for a solo show on January 15, 2010. Mayer will be performing original songs from a career that has produced more than 13 CDs and songs such as “Faith In Angels” (featured on an episode of the hit series “Scrubs”) and Blue Guitar (recorded and performed by Jimmy Buffett). He’ll also include a few selections from his latest release, Goodbye Hello, a collection of 15 Beatles songs outfitted with fresh arrangements and new musical settings.

“His two shows in November sold out very quickly, and his extraordinary musicianship explained why,” said Eric Holowacz, director of The Studios of Key West. “Peter carefully crafts each song, whether inspired by a pop classic, a calypso melody, or a jazz riff. The result is impeccable, beautiful.”

Peter Mayer appears as part of The Studios of Key West’s Old Town New Folk music series, which invites some of the country’s great singer-songwriters to the intimate main hall of the Historic Armory. His January 15 appearance will be followed by the legendary John Gorka on February 12, Cheryl Wheeler on March 11, and the return of last year’s favorite, David Wilcox on April 9. The Historic Armory series concludes with local music-maker, Ben Harrison, on April 24.

“I am looking forward to coming back, this time solo,” said Mayer, “Appearing on a small stage allows for a bit of freedom and adventure in the set list, but the audience can expect a visit by a special guest or two throughout the evening, as I have lots of friends in Key West.”

Doors open at 7pm, and Mayer will take the stage at 8pm. Seats are limited to 200 and are now available at www.keystix.com and can also be reserved by phone at 305-295-7676.
