A few years back Peter moved from London to France, where he met Larry Tomko, a songwriter, singer and saxophonist from San Francisco.

Larry worked in the bands Wind Crazy, Shajazz, Firefly, and Armed Gang. He opened one of the first private recording studios in Italy and worked with the Italian group I Pooh. Later he performed with groups from the Bay area like White Teeth, Nobody Famous and Jorge Santana. In France he worked with the band West Coast.
