What Have Dr Dynamite Done Before?
Pete Martelle co-lead vocalist of Dr Dynamite has one attitude towards music and the band: "We work hard we play hard"...
With a natural ability for entertainment an acute sense of rhythm style and a sweet yet powerful vocal range as well as a no nonsense hard work ethic Pete puts his all into every live show. He has performed throughout the UK and Ireland for many function and party bands at Weddings, Birthdays, Bar-Mitzvah’s, Corporate events…you name it!
He has also recorded with some great original performers as a session vocalist and guitarist.
Lucy Westhead is the newest addition to the Dr Dynamite crew. She was chosen to co-front the band not only because of her sweet vocal tone, but for her stunning looks and stage presence also. Lucy has worked with the best around and has performed at the very highest level. She recently featured as a back up singer on the X-factor finals and also has a very established dance background.
The other members of Dr Dynamite have vast experience on the national and International circuits and have been employed in lots of session work for countless artists. They collectively as well as individually are excellent professional musicians with influence in jazz funk soul pop and rock.
