Apart from performing his original material at Jazz Clubs such as Bennetts Lane and Dizzys Jazz Bar, the Pete Mitchell Jazz Band play a wide variety of jazz standards and popular music at many weddings, corporate functions, tafe’s / university’s, clubs / pubs, shopping centres (roving acoustic) and product launches etc. Styles range from modern jazz, funky acid jazz, swing, bossa nova, latin, ballads etc. The Pete Mitchell Jazz Band repertoire includes tunes made popular by such greats as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim amongst many others.

A major highlight of Pete’s career so far was spending time and attending a private lesson with one of his all time jazz heroes, Branford Marsalis. A few years ago he was fortunate enough to jam and perform with members of the Cuban group “Buena Vista Social Club” on a visit to Melbourne and more recently was honoured to have Australian jazz legend Don Burrows join him to perform a full set with his trio at a function at Crown
