Director – Membership, Outreach
Mr. Petty performed as an actor and singer in and around the Central California Valley region for better than two decades. In that time, he has worked with The Capital City Stage, Music Circus, done voice work for the State of California, starred in a series of industrial training films for Tower Records World Domination Corp. (I guess that one didn’t work out) and starred in the independent GIG Ventures feature film, Jump-Cut. Mr. Petty has recorded with Elektra recording artists Papa’s Culture and Columbia Records’Cake, and was one of the founding members of the Valdo Herby tribute band, “Swing This!” Peter sang with the Sacramento Opera through 8 seasons. Recently, Mr. Petty glommed on to the Rat Pack tribute band The Dean-o’holics(It’s all about tributes, these days; after all, ain’t we all just paying tribute to one thing or another?), and is ripping up the cool with his new seriously hip “pallies” Dean, Frank & Sammie all over these United States of America. Mr. Petty’s overwhelming support in the Sacramento Music Scene and continued support of music education in our region, make him a valuable director on the board of SPMA.
