Its members Pinetop Perkins on piano, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Jerry Portnoy on harmonica and Calvin “Fuzz” Jones on bass, had been the backing band for blues legend Muddy Waters.

He has appeared on several records of renowned guitarist Ronnie Earl. Peter released two solo CDs — “Blues on My Shoulders” and “Train to Key Biscayne” — for which he wrote more than a dozen original songs.
