Pete became a member of the Memphis Bop Club in 1995 after reading an article written by Jo Reynolds about the club's dances and activities. After brushing up on his dance technique Pete assisted Jo with dance lessons whenever needed.
It wasn't long before Pete discovered the fun of attending out of town dance events and soon began attending events of other clubs ultimately penning a regular article called "On The road With Pete And Jo" in which he recapped the events he attended and included information of a local event.
Pete has given a number of dance demonstrations over the years and was an active volunteer for Boppin' On Beale Street.
Pete has served as club treasurer for the Memphis Shag Club, the Memphis Boogie Bunch and River City Boppers and is the Newsletter Editor for River City Boppers.
