 "Peter Dobson Live With Tricia McTeague and Steven Zdrenka:

It takes a pianist / keyboard player of an exceptional calibre to step onto a stage and excel while performing a hugely versatile range of live covers in the company of super-talented vocalist Tricia McTeague and guitarist Steven Zdrenka. Pete, however, not only has a proven capability of achieving this across a broad spectrum of musical genres but is equally adept at accompanying and augmenting Tricia with her own majestically eloquent compositions. The integration of his unique style and influence brings an alternative dimension to the existing music although Pete additionally demonstrates sublime creativity by exploring innovative depths utilising his exceptionally honed improvisational skills. The analogy which immediately springs to mind is a great artist discovering the perfect collective blend of rich colour, vibrant texture and subtle tone, except in this instance it's fingers and keys replacing paint brush and pallet. A masterpiece of a performance is always guaranteed nonetheless."     Mike (Liverpool)

 

"Pete Dobson played on one of Hughie Brennan's new songs:

I needed piano for a song I had written, and having only met Pete a couple of times through a mutual friend he was working with contacted him to see if he'd be interested. Pete went out of his way to bring the track to life. He is easy going and that created a relaxed environment to get the best out of the track. He offered advice to embellish the song as well as taking on board the feel and vibe I was looking for. I would and will definitely be working with Pete again.”
Hughie Brennan - Music Composer

 

Pete with the band ‘Dose’:

“Dose are a great band to watch and a pleasure to listen to. The piano/keyboard adds great depth to some classic covers band tunes. A well-varied set which was enjoyed by everyone.”
Claire (Manager of Wangies, live music venue - Manchester)

“I really enjoyed the Dose gig last night at The Old Market Tavern for all manner of reasons. Mainly because the band played two fantastic sets of ‘Rolling Stones Classics’ which really appealed to me… The saxophone and keyboards really filled out the sound, vocals were bang on, guitar playing was very ‘Keith Richards’ and the bass player and drummer play very well together….We only intended to watch the first set but stayed for both….Will definitely catch “Dose of Stones” again. Venues, I thoroughly recommend these guys. Get them booked!”
Rick – Musician (Bolton)

'Gloves Off'

"Working with Peter Dobson, both in practice and on stage, is a pleasure and a privilege. His expertise and knowledge of a wide variety of musical genres, combined with some wonderfully fresh interpretations, always make him a vital part of my own live performances.  Along with great musicality, he also offers empathy, patience and artistic integrity. Peter inspires and entertains, wherever and whatever he plays."
