Peter Beets

Born:

As one of the most sought-after jazz artists of our time, PETER BEETS has attracted a devoted international audience, performing regularly at major jazz festivals and venues throughout Europe, the United States and Asia. He has shared the stage with jazz greats such as Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, “Toots” Thielemans, Elvin Jones en Benny Golson.

From birth, Peter was surrounded by music: Classical from his mother who is a music pedagogue, and Jazz from his father who instilled in his son his own great love of Oscar Peterson and Art Blakey. His brothers Marius (1966) and Alexander (1968) also became professional musicians, double bass and tenor saxophone respectively. Since 1985, the brothers have performed together as “The Beets Brothers”.
