Peterik also made TMZ news when he performed an acoustic set in Randy Cohen’s basement for the hit TV Show Hardcore Pawn

As founding member, lead singer and lead guitarist of The Ides of March whose 1970 smash hit rose to number one on the
charts and has been covered by everyone from Sammy Davis Jr. to Tom Jones to American Idol star Bo Bice; Peterik will
soon celebrate the iconic band’s 50 year anniversary with a massive concert and the release of a full-length live DVD
with interviews and more! Also worth celebrating, the city of Berwyn, Illinois has named a street 'The Ides of March
Way' to honor the band, who played many of their first concerts at a high school on that very street.
