Making a Scene presents an interview with Peter Veteska
Peter Veteska was born in Manhattan and grew up in Queens, where, influenced by Derek And The Dominos, Alvin Lee and The Allman Brothers, he bought his first guitar at a pawn shop. A self-taught musician, he began playing professionally at age 15, but basically put the six-string down for good after being disillusioned by the music business at 21. A building tradesman by profession, he didn’t pick it up again until nine years ago when that industry soften.
At that point, he started delving deeply into his blues roots, discovering for the first time many of the great guitarists of the ’50s in addition to contemporaries, including Robert Cray. A solid tenor, he didn’t start working on vocals until sitting in at local jams. It’s obvious from this recording that he worked diligently at his craft.
