TYPE OF EVENT : Blues & Jazz


Ex Dexys jazz reprobate Pete has an unmistakable style bluesy with hints of Tom Waits and Dr John. Soulful gritty singing catchy originals to timeless classics and some unexpected covers.

Its been a long journey from being a founder member of 80’s pop band Dexys Midnight Runners and playing and writing two songs on their celebrated debut album Searching for the Young Soul Rebels to London's hot new Burlesque and Cabaret scene. His life took a variety of ups and downs, playing with all sorts from the Damned, an album with Carmel to the Jive Aces. From stadiums in South Africa with Rodriguez to Berlin squats with Serious Drinking . Pete Saunders has done a lot of playing and a lot of living and you can hear it in his singing.

Four years ago Pete created the Blues and Burlesque show at Volupte and formed a regular team with Vicious Delicious and Bouncy Hunter. They provided the core of a weekly variety Live music show which featured some of the cream of London’s cabaret scene that they took to Edinburgh in 2012 with spectacular success.


"Saunders’ songs are insightful, his piano playing doesn’t miss a note, his chat is erudite as well as being amusing, and he has a great singing voice to boot”the clothes line."
Adelaide Magazine

"Charming from start to finish, Saunders has an art to working the house and a fantastic ease with which he weaves together the show. An accomplished pianist and songwriter, Saunders breathes the blues and gives a resounding performance with his three piece band. His songs are light-hearted and funny, teasing his audience."
Broadway Baby

"Mr Saunders provided the jazz, with the kind of effortless improvisation that we all know isn’t remotely effortless. His almost edible, gravelly, rendition of Let The Good Times Roll was a joy."
Erotic Review

"Probably best known for his association with wedding reception favourites Dexy’s Midnight Runners, he has carved out an impressive career as a blues maestro"
This is Cabaret

About Dr Sketchy London

Dr Sketchy was founded in 2005 by artist, author and former artists model Molly Crabapple. It's a little Brooklyn event that has become a movement. Now taking place in 150 cities (and counting) around the world. See more of our Dr Sketchy creator Molly Crabapple

Opening it's doors in 2007 Dr. Sketchy London is organised by Clare Marie and hosted by Dr. Sketchy's evil headmaster Dusty Limits

Life drawing is more than just nude models and serious sketching. So we've scoured this great city to find beautiful burlesque performers, bizarre circus acts, and rippling hunks of man-flesh. Then we let them loose on stage to release the artist in you!

In between each round of sketching our larger-than-life models you get a chance to grab a drink get comfortable and take in some of the finest burlesque, comedy, music, poetry and quirky cabaret performances the big smoke has to offer.

Dr Sketchy isn't about being an amazing artist, as long as you can put pencil to paper and move it around that's good enough for us and you never know you might just unleash that artist inside.

It's what art classes would be if the class was let loose in the Moulin Rouge.
