Pete & Mike

Pete & Mike


100% Self-Produced


In today’s ever-evolving, “internet friendly” musical landscape, the Pete and Mike Band is a beacon for those seeking authentic and original music by independent artists who have not succumbed to the contemporary standards of popular music. An entirely self-produced acoustic duo from Woods Hole, MA, Pete and Mike take pride in their do-it-yourself approach to making music, merchandise, and videos and are motivated by a growing fan base of music lovers who are not satisfied when they turn on a major radio station. Comprised of its two founders, singer/songwriter Pete McNamara and multi-instrumentalist/engineer Mike Schanbacher, the Pete & Mike Band also frequently collaborates with guest musicians in studio, and more commonly on stage to fill out their live sound.
