Includes Pictures, Music Videos, Songs, Ways to Connect with Peterik and More
Chicago, IL …  The new Jim Peterik Artist Experience App, available for download on iTunes is a must have for longtime fans of Grammy award winning Peterik (Survivor, Ides of March), who is responsible for 18 top ten hits including the number-one songs “Eye of The Tiger” (featured in Rocky III),  “Vehicle” and “The Search is Over.”  The app is all things Peterik with pictures, music videos, songs, ways to connect with Peterik online, and more.  Fans of Peterik will love accessing all of their favorite Jim Peterik media all in one place on their iPhone, iPad or Android device!
Peterik now spends most of his time with his smooth jazz band “Lifeforce” and the many collaborators to the project. This is not your dad’s ole’ smooth jazz band – this band rocks!  Jim Peterik’s Lifeforce boasts a lineup of incredible jazz musicians including American Idol’s Mindi Abair.  Lifeforce recently released a deluxe edition of their album “Forces at Play.” The remastered album is a two-disc set featuring bonus tracks and a total of 32 talented jazz artists.
Contributors joining Peterik on the record include:  Buddy Guy (on the Grammy award winning track “Vehicle” performed by the Ides Of March, included from an earlier time) and new Lifeforce contributors: Steve Oliver; Jeff Carlisi (.38 Special), Mindi Abair (American Idol); Greg Carmichael and Miles Gilderdale (Acoustic Alchemy); Blake Aaron, Jessy J, Marzette Griffith, Lisa McClowry, Sijay, David Pack, Steve Eisen, Steve Cole, Chieli Minucci, Nick Colionne,  Mike Cichowicz,  Alex Ligertwood (Santana); Ariel Engelbert, Christian Cullen, Ed Breckenfeld, Jeff Lantz, Khari Parker, Klem Hayes, Larry Gray, Mike Aquino, Richie Davis, The Ides of March Brass, Thom Griffin, Tim Bales and Zoey Engelbert, each bringing their own unique style to the superstar group.
Recently Lifeforce performed at the Milwaukee Summerfest prior to performances by The Eagles and Loverboy.  Performing solo, Peterik drew a crowd of over 70K and a standing ovation at the Changjiang International Music Festival in China. Peterik also made TMZ news when he performed an acoustic set in Randy Cohen’s basement for the hit TV Show Hardcore Pawn -Chicago’s live-streaming event.
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.
You can download the new app on iTunes and Amazon.  To learn more about the Lifeforce band, visit their website at www.jimpeterikslifeforce.com. You can listen to, download, or order the “Forces at Play” album on iTunes and Amazon.
