Aug. 1 - Novelli to headline Festival in Santiago DR

Peter has been invited to headline the annual Oktoberfest in Santiago, Dominican Republic, closing out the two day festival on Sunday October 8 with a Blues program. After Novelli's set, the Festival will end with an Allstar Blues Jam.

Peter has been working on a recording project including 11 original guitar instrumental compositions that merge New Orleans funk with Caribbean rhythms and percussion. Coproducing the project is DR drummer Guy Frometa (Juan Luis Guerra, Mike Stern, etc).

Novelli is also finishing his 4th New Orleans-based CD, recorded last April at Friendly Fish studios in St. Amant, Louisiana. Coproducing the 12 blues originals is drummer Brian Brignac (Sonny Landreth, Wayne Toups, Chubby Carrier, etc).

Accolades for Novelli's 3rd CD, St. Amant Sessions

“Novelli possesses a guitar capability that is heads and shoulders above many of his contemporaries. He is playing is facile and intelligent across the sub-genre of his oeuvre.” —C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz (June 7, 2015)

“Novelli’s rhythmically rich tunes have killer licks galore.”

—Rick Allen, Vintage Guitar

“Peter Novelli’s third album kicks off with a bang with guest Sonny Landreth’s signature slide guitar on Louisiana Sunrise.

“...as a guitarist, Novelli never overpowers, but carefully crafts his solos with ample individual expression and varying shades and expressions.

“He’s also the rare guitarist who’s in touch with his zydeco side... Novelli’s best groove-bound CD yet.”

—Dan Willging, Offbeat Magazine (July 29, 2015)

“guitar virtuoso”
