Peter Szuna, bass

Good everywhere, but the best music on stage…

carreer

He was born 1977 in Budapest, Hungary, and lives in Dunaharaszti near to the capital. He started learning music from his brother who taught him playing the drum and later he began to play the trumpet in a musical elementary school. After that he got in touch with the electric bass and started learning it by himself.

His musical career began at the age of 15, with some amateur bands. He formed his own band named 'Voice' in '96, in jazz-rock, funky, soul style. He joined the trio called 'Honeyflak' formed by Janos Kallai in '97 playing Joe Satriani songs mainly at that time. This was the predecessor of today’s K3.

He left Kandó Kálmán University of Engineering after 3 years in '99,after which he started to learn music at Kőbánya Music Studio and Liszt Ferenc University of Music.

Meanwhile, he joined Péter Müller’s band called Sziámi for 3 years, with his collegue Dániel Jékey (former drummer of Honeyflak) and worked in Sziámi's album called 'Egyszerű teremtés' in 2000.

In 2001 he started to work with Gyula Papp in the band 'Motherfunker', then he became a member of Jazzterfield from Székesfehérvár, lead by Dávid Horváth. They played Miles Davis, John Scofield, Pat Metheny songs.

In 2002 he played the last gig with Sziámi in Sziget Festival.

In 2003, he took part in Dandó Péter jazz-bass competition, where he got serious appreciation from his competitors and friends as well because of his unhesitant and modest stand out.

After all of this, he worked with many bands, soloist and singers inland and foreigns countries (Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Sweden, Slovakia, Canada). An incomplete (off-the-back-of-the-head) list of these bands:
