Little Peter and the Elegants
LP&E made its debut in 1973 at the Port Credit Secondary School Christmas assembly, performing I Wonder Why, Yakety Yak and Rock Around the Clock. The audience asked for an encore but the band didn’t know a 4th song! With Happy Days on TV in 1974, LP&E played two school dances and a concert. Through today, Peter Toller, the only original member, continues and considers it a privilege to have such fine musicians in the band.
The Dreamboats are bringing back good ol’ Rock n’ Roll! With a sound that is equal parts Chuck Berry & The Wonders, this quartet of young Canadian boys delivers a high energy show that has audiences dancing and singing the night away!
