Peet Project + Michael Lington

  • Jazz
  • Pop

As a natural follow-up of their phenomenal concert last summer, Danish-American saxophonist Michael Lington will return to Budapest to join the Peet Project on stage again for an extraordinary evening of melodic jazz, soul, funk and pop.

There will be no shortage of new music: Michael's latest radio hit, South Bay, topped the Billboard jazz Chart at #1 for a record seven weeks recently, and the Peet Project's new studio album is due out this summer.

For those who saw them on stage together last year, neither Michael nor the Peet Project needs an introduction. As a quick summary though, Michael Lington has performed and recorded with the likes of Dave Stewart, Vince Gill, Dave Koz, Booker T. Jones, Taylor Dayne, Barry Manilow, Randy Crawford, Brian Culbertson, Bobby Caldwell and Ray Parker, Jr. among others. His joint tour with Michael Bolton took him to 350 shows in 40 countries around the world. He is one of the key performers on the StageIt! platform and played a pioneering role during the pandemic.

With their high-energy blend of jazz, pop and funk, the Peet Project is one of Hungary’s internationally recognized young bands. They won the top prize in Jazzy Radio’s Song Contest in Budapest (2009) and have been regular performers at major jazz festivals both in the US and at home since 2013. They won “Debut Artist of the Year” (2013), “Album of the Year” (2017) and “Song of the Year” (2020) awards at Catalina Island JazzTrax, the longest running and most prestigious jazz festival in the US. In early 2021, they topped Canada's jazz radio chart, and they are the first Hungarian band to date who have made it to the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 30 chart with four different songs. They played in a number of European countries (Spain, Switzerland, Malta, Slovakia, Romania among others) and are returning performers on the A38 stage.

The Peet Project and Michael Lington first worked together in 2019, when Michael played as featured artist on Anything for You, a seductive track on the band's sixth studio album Ups & Downs.

The concert at the A38 will feature new and old hits from both the Peet Project’s and Michael Lington’s repertoire, offering an exceptional live music experience on a summer evening for lovers of funk, soul, pop and high-energy, melodic jazz.
