Mike Peters and The Alarm, Wales' sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
Michael Leslie "Mike" Peters was born in Prestatyn (Wales) 1959 and is a vocalist and guitarist. Along with guitarist Dave Sharp, bassist Eddie MacDonald, and drummer Nigel Twist, he formed the band The Alarm in Rhyl (Wales) in 1981. Their musical style is best described as a blend of indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegaze), new wave (a genre of rock music that moved away from smooth blues and rock and roll sounds to create pop music that incorporated electronic and experimental music, mod, and disco), and dance rock (a genre – originating in the early 1980s, following the mainstream death of punk and disco – related to pop rock and post punk but with fewer rhythm and blues influences). They released 5 studio albums after which band split up. However, in 2000, Mike got the band back together with a new line up consisting of James Stevenson (guitar), Craig Adams (bass), Mark Taylor (keyboards), Steve "Smiley" Barnard (drums), and Jules Jones Peters (keyboards). They've released 9 studio albums.
