PG-13 a Peter Gabriel Tribute Minneapolis/St. Paul
PG13 is a Peter Gabriel tribute band. But it is much more than that. It's not just imitation. It's a group of musicians that truly love Peter Gabriel's work and strive to honor his music with meticulous attention to detail.
The group was initially conceived by Twin Cities musicians that have played continuously together in various projects for the past 30 years. Drummer/programmer Doug Christianson, keyboardist Dave Alstead, and vocalist Will Jacobsen have several musical influences that have shaped their music - but the one common thread between them is the music of Peter Gabriel.
The search was on for a bass player, guitar player, and female vocalist that shared their same passion. Matt McIntyre (bass) and Dave Feily (guitar) were the perfect fit. Matt brings the unique feel and sound of bass legend Tony Levin – Peter’s long-time bass player. Dave Feily captures the esoteric beauty and sonic fullness of David Rhodes' guitar parts. Jacy Smith (vocalist) has the vocal finesse and power that is demanded of Peter’s female vocalists. If you've seen and heard Peter Gabriel's Secret World tour, Jacy is our Paula Cole.
PG13 has performed in many popular Minneapolis venues such as Icehouse, The Hook & Ladder, Bunker’s, and The Cabooze. They have also performed a two-set show featuring the album "So!" at the Rochester Civic Theatre Black Box in Rochester, MN.
Whether the venue is a theatre or a more intimate space, PG13’s lead vocalist, Will, has a penchant for interacting with the audience – bringing a unique drama and personality to the performance that they won't forget. Together, these six deliver a concert experience that is nothing less than genuine and authentically Peter Gabriel.
