PSR-3000 / PSR-2000

(Jun, 2002) - Warren "Tresclub" Peters, and his wife of 48+ years Revel, are both retired and currently reside in Oroville, CA USA (Just South of Paradise). They have a son in Anaheim, CA, a daughter in Huntington Beach, CA, and a daughter in Lemon Grove, CA, and seven grandchildren. Warren was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1937 and raised in Ontario, CA (1946-1982). He graduated from Chaffey High School in 1955 and then played professional baseball for 5yrs, 1956-60. (Had a cup of coffee with the San Diego Padres in 1960.) Warren worked in the California Department of Corrections 13+ years.

Musical Background. I started out playing a tenor guitar in college back in '56, doing Kingston Trio and Four Freshmen stuff in a quartet that included Terry Kirkman, who wrote most all the songs for The Association. I also got to play in a "front room" jam session with Terry and Frank Zappa.

Then it was on to 6-string electrics, playing for my own enjoyment. In '75, my wife and I started doing nightclub gigs, so I got a Les Paul and played it through an Ames 200w piggy-back amp that had 4-12" speakers, and an Ames pa system that had 2 4-speaker towers. Talk about overkill. We did that for 3-4 months, then she decided the "thrill was gone," and she didn't want to do that anymore. So, I got together with a couple of other musicians, and with our 14yr old Son on drums, we did some parties and concerts the rest of that summer. I met Johnny Fortune that same summer. He was giving guitar lessons in the same store where I bought all my equipment. He heard me playing his Soul Surfer song, and came to see who was butchering it so bad (lol). His Soul Surfer recording was on the charts for 27 weeks in 1963. Played bass in the Johnny Fortune Trio for 3½ yrs. When John decided to go to seven nights a week, I switched places with a bass player in a C&W band. Played with the Black Water Rose band for almost 2 years. My last night on a stage was a New Years Eve party in 1981 at Knott's Berry Farm. The band broke up the next day, never saw or heard from any of them ever again. Two weeks later, job took me to San Diego, and I never touched a guitar again. Gave my bass, a Gibson ES-335, to our Son.

Years later, I took up messing around on a mini-keyboard, a Yamaha ???, 350 I think, or something like that. A little bitty thing compared to what we have now. Progressed up to a 450, then a 500, then a 740, and now my 2000. I really regret now that I never had any formal music training, like piano. It's all been by ear. Haven't learned the multi-track thing as yet, all my recordings are 1-finger style "live," and for now, that is working out real good. Just recently started learning some of the more "exotic" chords (for me)... dims, augs, etc. I've been playing it 1-finger for so long, trying to use three fingers can sometime be a real pain in the patoot.

The keyboard playing has always been purely for the enjoyment of my wife and I, and sometimes family and friends; however, I'm getting the entertainer bug again, and the wife and I are going to start doing the hospital/nursing home, community events circuit here real soon, including possibly an audition for one of the local casinos.

I am not an "arranger," and I am certainly not in the same league with the performers already presented here. I haven't even scratched the surface of what the 2000 is really capable of, and I will probably never get to the same level as those who have mastered it's potential; but, it serves to give me great pleasure when I'm not playing computer golf, running my online baseball league, reading, or chasing Revel around the house (and not necessarily in the order).

Note: In January of 2006, I sold my 2000, and got a 3000. I am like a kid with a new toy!!!
