BAD PETER is an independent singer/songwriter duo made up of PG Badenhorst and Alwyn Bekker.
Both members picked up guitars for the first time in high school and like so many others started jamming riffs by Metallica, Blink etc. but this soon developed into a preference for acoustic guitar playing. To start off with, the motivation was purely to have fun, they never thought about making music for a living! PG says:
“Alwyn is quite the genius, playing drums and violin in high school but when he got to guitar; that was it! PG picked up a few chords and started entertaining friends every once in a while…”
The two first met at a performing arts company, and even though their musical partnership didn’t start immediately, it wasn’t long before BAD PETER was born. Alwyn first went to work in Thailand for 9 months, playing shows weekly with PG doing the exact same thing in South Africa. Upon Alwyn’s return the two realised that together they could create something special and formed the band in March 2014.
BAD PETER is an energetic band that really has a passion for jamming, performing and making music live! They often tell one another if neither one of their guitars break during this performance they’re not giving it their all. This might sound like a strange thing to hear from guys playing acoustic but they love putting all their energy into performing, and that’s what makes them such a joy to watch.
According to the band, “It’s been the raddest, funnest 4 years of our lives and we couldn’t be happier. A thought that really blows our minds is that we’ve just started and we have no idea and can’t wait to see what happens!”
