Meet Peter Calo

Meet Peter Calo

I first met Peter Calo in the fall of 2013.  My friend John Platt, who hosts a great show on WFUV called Sunday Supper, asked to MC a show he was playing at The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock (a.k.a. the UUCSR) where they do a thing called Soulful Sundown on the second Friday of every month.  They have an excellent house band of top Long Island musicians and that night they were led by Peter Calo. I enjoyed the show immensely and was well impressed at Peter’s masterful, exciting guitar work that drew from a handful of genres and his evocative songs.  Clearly a very musical guy, it was no surprise to learn he had a resume full of recoding sessions and gigs with a long list of well-known musicians including half a dozen or so albums with Carly Simon.  I made a mental note to try to catch PC sometime he was in the city.  I ended up catching him a couple of times and I was clever enough to bring my camera during a recent show at Rockwood 3 which, as Peter mentions in the vid, is a preferred haunt of his because of  the sound and vibe.  Happily, he’ll be there again this Saturday evening (January 23,2016) at 7p and you’re invited…well, you know tickets are on sale.
