Peter Schimke passed away

It is with great sadness that we learned of the sudden death of our dear friend, brother and musical genius, Peter Schimke.

  • 2020, 25 February

Since 2003, Peter has been a personal friend and was part of “That Band”, the megabien house band for our “Legends Rock” production. Peter played keyboards at the memorable shows with Sam Moore, Tony Joe White and Billy Preston, all produced on the Mediterranean island of Porquerolles in France. Peter amazed the whole production team with his kindness and unbelievable talent also recognized by all three artists, especially by Billy Preston, for his extraordinary contribution during their concert.

Peter has been recognized by his fellow musicians in Minneapolis and beyond for his unique musical style and creativity. We all lost a friend, a brother and a genius musician.
You are now with “The People Over There”, as one of his last song says… Rest In Peace, Peter.
