first revolutionized the world of bass amplification in 1985 with the
creation of a unique aluminum cone driver that produced a bass tone
with far broader dynamics than had ever been heard before. Since
then, they have introduced a complete line of bass gear, and
introduced the Hartke sound to a whole new generation of bass
players. Their success can be attributed to a long history of
inspiring world-class musicians with our innovative bass speaker technology.

Tim Bogert on stage. Pete had been playing bass only a few months. It

Kootz is an amazing cover... well family. It's hard to call it just a
band. They have been around for almost 10 years (as of 2009) and if
you live in New Jersey, they play- everywhere, and everything
boasting a play list nearing 1,000 songs! Kootz can be found in New
York too. Pete is now very happy and proud to have been invited to
become a part of the Kootz family. Check their official website out
above, and become their friend on MySpace.
Martell is probably the most unsung guitar player in Rock
History" Even though his riff in Vanilla Fudge's You Keep Me
Hanging On was voted the number 4 heaviest guitar riff of all time by
Guitar Magazine, he still hasn't achieved the status he richly
deserves. Check out Vince Martell. Pete has been Vince's bass player
for since 2000.
and I went to High School together. Bill Meligari is truly one of
the finest drummers I've ever met or worked with. He studied with
jazz legend Joe Morello, who gave him the nickname Tiger Bill. He's
published drum method books including a very popular one for double
bass drum technique. Please visit Bill's site!"

Pete was influenced on bass by Tim Bogert and Paul McCartney, perhaps
his biggest musical influence of all was Mark Stein of the Vanilla
Fudge. "I remember the first time I saw the Fudge, and Mark
Stein. I was, as I've said many times before, blown away by bassist
Tim Boger. However, I kept being drawn back to Mark, his vocals, and
his Hammond organ. So much so, he inspired me to learn a new
instrument. No one else has done that to me before, and since. I'm
proud to have his signature on my own Hammond now." Visit Mark
Stein." (2006 - I'm also now proud to be his webmaster) (2007 -
also proud to be his keyboard tech at Radio City Music Hall 8/7/07!!!)
you haven't guessed already, Vanilla Fudge had the most profound
influence on me and my music. No, this is not the site that I
maintain, but the current site for the most up to date news of the
greatest Rock & Roll band ever."
