Pete Denahy – Live Music
Pete Denahy is a comedian and bluegrass musician hailing from Yackandandah in Victoria, Australia. He is a songwriter and singer whose show includes everything from serious ballads to ridiculous stories and songs with a twist.
Pete wrote the “teenager song” Sort Of Dunno Nothin’ which went viral on youtube and is seen as a “Gen Y” anthem, although people from all generations relate to the song. His show is popular at music festivals and at his own shows because it contains a lot of variety and is a show suitable for people of all ages.
Pete has toured with Slim Dusty, Sara Storer, Troy Cassar-Daley, Lee Kernaghan and has worked in the Melbourne comedy scene with Akmahl Saleh, Elliot Goblet and Flacco.
Being half Japanese, Pete draws much inspiration from his late grandfather, Kido Zenichi (木戸 全一 ) who was a well respected musician in Hiroshima. In 2013 Pete travelled Japan and played bluegrass and country with some of the finest pickers he’s shared a stage with.
Pete’s main inspiration in the business of entertainment is the man who wrote “I’ve Been Everywhere”, Geoff Mack who has been his mentor since 1991 and is one of his best friends.
