Peter Wright is amongst the elite of Queensland’s entertainment exports. Hailing from Toowoomba on the Darling Downs in south-eastern Queensland (Australia), Peter rose to success in the early sixties as a pop performer, then later in the decade with hits as a composer, arranger and producer - most notably with The Rose Has A Thorn in 1966, and the psychedelic cult-classic House Of Bamboo in 1967. In the seventies, he toured extensively throughout Australia with his show-band -The Peter Wright Revival, which, when available also appeared as the preferred opening and support act for one of Australia’s legendary rockers, Johnny O’Keefe, appearing in nearly fifty of his in concert performances. Later in the seventies Wright returned to solo performances, and recorded an album and several singles. In recent years, Peter has presented cabaret shows which pay tribute to the legends of rock music, and has been busy restoring and reissuing his back catalogue of recordings to an audience of fans, both old and new, and researchers interested in his substantial career.
