PETER FERNANDEZ con ANEXO 3 "No Morire Yo Seguire" "I Will Survive"
Esta version la escribi y la grabe con el muy querido grupo de Puerto Rico Anexo 3 con mi bella amiga Arlene Gonzales y Loubriel hace 37 años cuando todavia no se le habia ocurrido a nuestra querida Celia Cruz grabarla... fue mi idea grabar esta cancion pera este disco con la prestigiosa compañia disquera Alhambra. Aquellos que hablan Ingles veran que la traduccion es casi literal a lo que dice la cancion original en Ingles grabada por Gloria Gaynor.

Peter Fernandez & The Open House Band Promo Video Magic City Casino
Our event is a trip down memory lane. A celebration of the great disco music of the 70's & 80's and even a little Motown too. All this coupled by some of the tunes that Peter recorded as lead singer of the 70's bands COKE & THE ANTIQUES true pioneers who influenced what was later to be called the Miami sound and is now considered an important part of Miami's musical heritage. A time known to many as "The Open House Era" For more info on the Open House Era see Filmmaker Joe Cardona's Documentary PBS Special "El Open House: The Soundtrack of Our Lives"

Peter Fernandez Sings Tu Me Acostumbraste Live Spanish Television
English/Español On this popular prime time variety show Peter sings the Frank Dominguez Cuban classic circa 1957 made famous by his 70's band, The Antiques. This is live television folks! Pretty decent sound for live tv. Most tv shows you have to lypsinc on because the sound is so bad! Tu Me Acostumbraste es una bella cancion que le a dado vuelta al mundo. La cancion mas famosa del compositor Cubano Frank Dominguez (1957) a sido interpretada por los mas grandes. Quien no a vivido una desilusion como esta? A veces los dolores mas grandes inspiran las cosas mas bellas como esta cancion. Tu me acostumbraste, porque no me enseñaste a vivir sin ti? Se aprende a vivir sin "el amor de tu vida" por que "cuando se quiere de veras" y te dejan no te queda mas remedio que levantarte y llenarte de amor propio. Hay que sacar las fuerzas de donde sea y seguir viviendo con fe y adelante porque solo Dios sabe lo que en el futuro te espera... Indiscutiblemente "en la vida hay amores que nunca pueden olvidarse" como decia Julio Gutierrez pero tambian hay otros amores que al pasar los años nos hemos preguntado "Que coño fue lo que yo le veia a esa persona?" No importa cuantas decepciones sufrimos, el amor no se rinde ni se acaba. El amor persevera. El amor es inagotable. El amor es infinito. El amor hace girar al mundo!

Peter Fernandez Sings "Si Vuelves Tu", a Tribute to La Lupe!
I saw her on TV beating up on her piano player when I was a little boy. She left a lasting impression on me. Little did I know then that one day I would meet her and she would pay me the highest compliment by telling me in front of a lot of the Fania All Star folks at our dinner table that she had seen me perform a couple of years prior at the Liborio in Union City, New Jersey and she thought I really had something very special and that I could make it in show business. I was 25 years old and totally star struck. I will never forget her. ;)

Peter Fernandez & The Open House Band performing Disco Inferno @ Stage305
Musicians: Pinao: Irving Aday, Bass: Cristobal Verdecia, Drums: Kevin Avantos, Guitar: Jay Oriolls, Congas/Percussion: Lina Arguelles, Trumpet: Ryan Chapman, Sax: Derek Smith, Trombone: Jose Miranda, Vocals: Jeannie Cruz & Jamil Sayih - I was about 23 years old the first time I sang this song. I was the lead singer / front man to a popular South Florida Band called Ecstacy. We were practically the house band at Ft. Lauderdale's #1 Disco club Pete & Lenny's. If someone would have said to me then: almost 40 years from now you will be headlining with your own band singing this same song in an important national venue at a major Miami Casino, I would have responded: Yeah right! Once again truth proves to be stranger than fiction and thank God for that!

I sang this remembering my Dad/ Canto recordando a Mi Padre on Father's Day Music is the language of the heart and that's why in our sadness we sometimes also have to sing. This was my Dad's and his father's favorite song. "Siempre En Mi Corazon/You Are Always In My Heart" written by the Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona. La Musica es el lenguage del corazon y por eso es que en la trizteza a veces tambien tenemos que cantar. Esta era la cancion favorita de mi padre y la de su padre, "Siempre En Mi Corazon" del compositor Cubano Ernesto Lecuona.

Singer/Showman Peter Fernandez on Dreams, Inspiration and Broadway
From the age of 13 to 15, I was already being featured singing solos in all my school shows. The first three songs I sang in front of all my peers and their families were all from Broadway shows: Climb Every Mountain from The Sound of Music, The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha and Aquarius Let The Sunshine In from Hair. There was no high school for the performing arts in Miami in the 60's and my loving parents were doing the best they could working hard to support a family of Cuban refugees. My chorus teacher Mr. Ronci was a great influence. Always very supportive, he was great for my self esteem always encouraging me when I sang in his shows. I remember my proud father going to talk to him after I brought the house down in one of the shows. I dont know what they talked about but I'm sure there was only so much he could do as a young teacher with a wife and 3 kids. One of the most beautiful things anyone has ever said to me is when Mr. Ronci recently said to me how much he regretted not having quit his job so he could manage my career. Wow. That really touched me deeply. After High School I found my way into the music business alone. Learning the ropes as I went along, singing in many different situations until I stumbled upon the cruise ship industry in 1987. I gave the best years of my life to that industry where I developed my craft as an entertainer. I never got to sing on Broadway so I did the next best thing. For 27 years I brought Broadway to me by always incorporating a segment in my shows where I could sing the songs from my favorite musicals.

"Por Salvar a Elian" (The Elian Gonzalez Story) Words & Music Peter Fernandez
Elian Gonzalez, turned 20 a couple of weeks ago. He was just 6 years old when he was found clinging to an inner tube after the tiny boat he was traveling in from Cuba sank on the way to the United States. Gonzalez's mother and nine other people in the boat drowned. I wrote this song during that whole tug of war between Miami Cubans, the Castro Regime and the rest of the world of public opinion. I wrote it from what I imagined was his mother's reason for risking both their lives on a makeshift raft headed for the United States. I am not making a political statement. I wrote this from a human point of view regardless of your political beliefs. Pf "I don't profess to have any religion but if I did my God would be Fidel Castro." Elian Gonzalez

"I Will Save Elian" The Elian Gonzalez Story words & music by PETER FERNANEZ
Elian Gonzalez, turned 20 a couple of weeks ago. He was just 6 years old when he was found clinging to an inner tube after the tiny boat he was traveling in from Cuba sank on the way to the United States. Gonzalez's mother and nine other people in the boat drowned. I wrote this song during that whole tug of war between Miami Cubans, the Castro Regime and the rest of the world of public opinion. I wrote it from what I imagined was his mother's reason for risking their lives on a makeshift raft headed for the United States. I am not making a political statement. I wrote this from a human point of view regardless of your political beliefs. For better or worse this the Cuban story... A story of indoctrination and the suffering of families torn apart by political ideals that have very little to do with love & compassion... Pf "I don't profess to have any religion but if I did my God would be Fidel Castro." Elian Gonzalez

Peter Fernandez Sings first time ever "Si Pudiera Volver" Live Stage305, Magic City Casino
First song Ive written in a very very long time inspired by all of you. Especially dedicated to Miami's "Open House Generation" the true pioneers of the "sound" of Miami. The #1 rule of putting a "show" set together is you NEVER want to do an "original" song people have never heard before. It is a HUGE risk. It can bring the energy of the show crashing down. People want to hear what they are familiar with and already like. What happened last Saturday when I debuted this NEVER HEARD BEFORE song as my tribute to my Miami generation that I grew up with was INCREDIBLE! This is the first song I've written in over 30 years. I've been inspired by you and the amazing response that you have shown me for the past 2 years packing all my events. THANK YOU MIAMI! "Si Pudiera Volver" is already registered and Im in the process of recording it!!! PF ;) 11-23-13

Peter Fernandez & Alex Mayor sing PERFECT, the story of two men in love.
When my partner sent me a text with a clip of him singing this song to me for Valentine's day, my heart soared and I was deeply touched. I immediately texted back: when you get home from work we're going to sing this as a duet. I changed a couple of lines to make the lyrics more fitting for us, two men in love, who in spite of our age difference and other differences, are absolutely perfect for each other. It's never too late to learn that Love, when you least expect it, in it's own place and time, has the power to make all things PERFECT.

"My Christmas Is You"  Words & Music by Peter Fernandez
12/6/17 Last week I started to put up a few Christmas ornaments to cheer up my elderly fragile mom. She's not doing well at all and could really use some Christmas cheer. The Christmas "Spirit" got a hold of me and I had to stop everything and sit at the piano with my thoughts and the feelings that were in my heart. I posted a very rustic piano and voice version of my "inspiration" on Facebook and your response was very encouraging even comforting during these emotional times when the Holidays pull at our heartstrings. I went ahead and paid for this production which I hope you will like because I wanted to give you a present that came straight from my heart. Yes, this is a love song but love is not always a romance between two. This song is also how I feel about all of you who have made such an incredible difference in my life. PF
