Guitar, Vocals, Arrangements
Peter Tentindo is a professional guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist, and recording artist from the Boston area. As a full-time musician, his talents run the gamut from performing and writing to producing and teaching music. He describes his brand of rock as “eclectic, melding together a wide array of styles and drawing inspiration from The Beatles, KISS, 80s Rock, and modern electronic pop.” He’s also an extremely respected studio musician, doing session work for a variety of national and local artists.
His most current musical venture is called Venus Mars Project, a pop/rock band he formed with singer/songwriter, Jacyn Tremblay. Since they began collaborating, the duo has released four singles (“#LaLaLaLove,” “Not Gonna Stop Me Now,” “Jump In,” and “Hands of Time”) and two videos, and recently had the honor of opening for the legendary Jacksons on their 50th Anniversary Tour.
Peter is also the guitarist and vocalist for America’s Truly Authentic Bon Jovi Tribute Band Wanted DOA. This amazing band performs live shows around the country to sold out crowds of screaming fans and have a very dedicated fan base themselves.
An established session guitarist, vocalist, and arranger, Peter’s versatility has afforded him work alongside a broad spectrum of artists both on stage and in the studio throughout his career. He served as backing band leader for Jimi Jamison, former lead singer of the band Survivor on multiple occasions.
Other performance credits include opening for national acts including Alice Cooper, Heaven & Hell (Black Sabbath), and Queensryche. In the studio he’s worked with many well known artists including legendary heavy metal vocalist Tony Martin (Black Sabbath), pop singer/actress Juliette Goglia, hard rock vocalist Veronica Freeman (Benedictum) and the soulful Erika Van Pelt (of American Idol fame).
Music isn’t where Peter’s passion ends, though. He volunteers his talents to humanitarian and health causes. He’s involved with Voices of Hope Boston, a volunteer non-profit organization raising funds for Massachuetts General Hospital’s Termeer Center in the fight against cancer.
