PE James has been entertaining audiences by singing and playing acoustic guitar for over four decades. He is an interpreter of well known songs, having a large repertoire that stretches from the sing-along classics of the 20s, 30s, and 40s, to standards and show tunes, early 50s rock and roll, 60s folk songs, and acoustic rock songs of the 70s. He also writes and performs original material, and his songs have been played on radio stations in Worcester, Massachusetts and his native Pittsburgh, PA.  His song “The Pantyhose Blues” has become a crowd favorite.  He has recorded four CDs, and has also recorded TV shows for five different stations. P.E. plays at concerts, restaurants, and bars all through central Massachusetts, and he is also enjoyed on the circuit of assisted living, retirement, and rehabilitation facilities.
