My Last Night at the Times Posted: Dec 27, 2014
I'd like to thank everyone for your responses to the Washington Post article, as well as for all your good wishes for my last regularly scheduled night at the Irish Times. The whole experience has been overwhelming, more than I could have ever expected. I've heard from so many friends, some of whom I haven't been in touch with for years. I can't thank you all enough!

For all who were there on Saturday night, I'm especially grateful to you for making it such a festive celebration of all the years we've had together. I was amazed by the fact that many of you came from places as far away as Chicago, St. Louis, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and...Kyrgyzstan! (shout out to John Patton, home for the holidays from the Peace Corps) -- just to be there. Now, almost a week later, I'm STILL basking in the afterglow of the event and expect that I will for a long time to come.

I'll be back at the Times for Parade Day (March 15th), St. Patrick's Day (March 17th), and for next year's CUA Homecoming Weekend. I hope to see you there. Until then, my heartfelt best wishes to you all for the New Year!

Pete

The Times, They Are A-Changin' Posted: Oct 1, 2014
To all my Friends & Fans:

This is to let you know that I'll be leaving Kelly's Irish Times at the end of this year. My last date is Saturday, December 20th. I want to thank Hugh Kelly, Brendan Kelly, and all of my Irish Times "family" I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with for all these years.

I'd like to say a special thanks to those of you who have followed me and become my friends and fans. I've enjoyed meeting you, getting to know many of you, and hope that we'll stay in touch. I plan to continue performing in the area after a break to "recharge my batteries." I'll be available for parties, weddings, and other occasions, too. Please check my website from time to time, or contact me directly for bookings or information about upcoming events. I also expect to continue working in Film and TV, as well as doing voiceover work whenever the opportunity arises.

Performing at the Times has been quite a ride, and I've had more fun than anyone has a right to expect. Technically speaking, it's not my last night there forever - I'm scheduled to play for Parade Day and St. Patrick's Day in 2015. But if you get a chance, it would be great to see you between now and December 20th.

With All Good Wishes,
Pete Papageorge

Meet Pete Papageorge, Capitol Hill Institution and Occasional On-Screen Badass Posted: Mar 4, 2013
Meet Pete Papageorge, Capitol Hill Institution and Occasional On-Screen Badass
Posted by Nico Dodd on Mar. 4, 2013 at 12:30 pm, Washington City Paper.

(reprinted with permission of the writer)

It's a Saturday night at Kelly's Irish Times on Capitol Hill, and Pete Papageorge is doing the same thing he's done for 28 years: getting ready to play music for a bunch of drunks.

He decides to open with an Irish bar song.

While local dives like Hawk ...n' Dove have undergone a noticeable spit shine in the last few years, Kelly's Irish Times still peddles some of the basic comforts of an Irish pub. Papageorge, the bar's longtime in-house musician, contributes a lot to its atmosphere. He's been called a human jukebox because he can play almost any song by ear, but he favors country, Irish songs, and classic rock. For his first set tonight, he sticks to classics like "Folsom Prison Blues," "Black Velvet Band," and "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da."

"I was never really a Top 40 type of dude," he says. He doesn't care much for crowd-pleasers, tending to stick to his own favorites. "I like songs ' that I happen to think work, that I personally like," he says. His repertoire might be as familiar as his face. When he's not playing golden oldies on the Hill, Papageorge works as an extra in film and TV. He's been a card-carrying member of the Screen Actor's Guild since 1999. Since then, he's appeared on HBO's Veep, the Netflix series House of Cards, and David Simon's The Corner (though his scene was cut from the final product, he says). He's also done a good amount of voiceover work: He lent his pipes to the Bethesda Softworks video game Fallout 3.

The night at Kelly's has been Papageorge's most consistent gig, but his tools have changed. On a recent Saturday, he was playing a new hollow-body Gretsch guitar. "I've been trying to get the right sound from it," he says of the flashy-sounding instrument. "I think I'm finally understanding it." The Gretsch was a gift from the bar for his 25th anniversary in October. Though, the anniversary was actually his 27th. Bartender J.R. Wolfensberger, who's worked at Kelly's since 1998, says Papageorge didn't have the heart to correct them.

From Papageorge's perch, he has a pretty good view of the room-a near panopticon of barroom bad behavior. Near the Big Buck Hunter and Golden Tee arcade games, a couple makes out to his version of Johnny Cash's "Walk the Line." Papageorge has probably seen a lot of making out-and some stuff he'd rather not discuss. "Sometimes, I see things and, I don't know, I'd really rather not comment on what I see because, honestly, I don't see that much," he says. Papageorge just wants to get the party started. He doesn't seem to take an interest in the boozy mating rituals playing out around him. He's been married to his wife, Gail, for 20 years. He made a point of calling her before our interview.

The singer/songwriter has a strict regimen. He takes multiple breaks during his sets. He's been a vegetarian since he was in his twenties, and he avoids alcohol. Wolfensberger says that's part of what makes Papageorge a different kind of bar musician. "Pete's not your typical bar entertainer who's been drinking for years while he's playing," he says.

"I get proper rest, proper food," says Papageorge. "I get some exercise, probably could use more. I always try to be a little bit health-conscious. I don't think you'd last long if you didn't take care of that. So I always try to be aware of it."

With St. Patrick's Day on the horizon, Papageorge is a little wary. "I understand it's really different in Ireland. It's not quite the big holiday that it is here. It's certainly a party. It's like New Years and Mardi Gras all together," he says.

The most distinctive part of Papageorge's sound is a harmonizing vocal effect he uses on some songs. He says he began using it four or five years ago. Over the years, he's tried out different tricks to keep his act fresh. The effect he's using now has an unusual sound-like Auto-Tune from another galaxy.

Last year, Papageorge starred in the pilot of a web series called Hard Fix. He played a guy named Declan Kelly, the fictional owner of a real bar-Kelly's Irish Times-who does dirty work for pols on Capitol Hill. But the acting jobs haven't taken him out of the music biz. He says he's got an album of original songs in the works. "I've been telling people that for years now, but it really is coming close," he says.

So it seems that Papageorge and Kelly's are inseparable-in all spheres of his life.

"People expect him to be here," said Wolfensberger. "I think he's become an institution."

Pete Papageorge plays at Kelly's Irish Times Thursdays, Fridays, and three Saturdays a month. Check his schedule at petepapageorge.com.


2012 Wrap-Up - Thank You! Posted: Dec 29, 2012
What a year it's been! I want to thank everyone for my 25-year Anniversary party that was held at the Irish Times on October 13th. Thanks to everyone who came that night, as well as to everyone who sent in their congratulations and good wishes. What a great night! Special thanks to owner Brendan Kelly for the new Gretsch guitar (selected by RB); to manager Sean Ryan for all his efforts in bringing the night together; to artist Sean Anthony for creating the portrait of me which remains framed on the stage at the Irish Times; to Brian Gaffney for his musical tribute; to Mike (Dirk) McCann for his hilarious roast; and to entrepreneurs Maureen & Matt Weinert for creating the tee-shirts bearing my image that everyone was wearing when I got there. I felt celebrated and truly grateful. From my heart, thank you everyone!

Also, I'd like to thank everyone who attended the "Hard Fix" premiere at the Irish Times on November 18th. It was a glitzy affair, and I really appreciate everyone who came out, as well as those who've expressed their support and shared their excitement for the project. We're looking forward to a second screening in February, details to come soon.

Happy Holidays to all, and here's hoping that 2013 will be our best year ever!

See you soon,
Pete

"THE ELEPHANT MAN" - Free Staged Reading, Monday, Oct. 24th! Posted: Oct 18, 2011
Greetings!

I'm happy to announce that I'm part of the cast for a free staged reading of "The Elephant Man" by Bernard Pomerance, directed by Evan Crump, this coming Monday evening, October 24th, at 7:30 at The Spooky Universe Theatre at the Actors' Center, 1810 16th St NW, in the Universalist National Memorial Church on 16th & S Streets, NW, Washington, DC. Reception follows. Please RSVP to: staff@actorscenter.org if you'd like to attend - we'd love to have you come!

The Elephant Man" is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, Merrick is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. Under the care of a famous young doctor, who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized.

Evan Crump teaches acting at Bowie State University and has performed with many local companies including the Kennedy Center (Talbott in 'The Other Room'), WSC Avant Bard (Lord Rivers in 'Richard III'), American Century Theater (Richard Miller in 'Ah, Wilderness!'), Keegan Theatre (Jason in 'False Romance'), Georgetown Theatre Company (Giovanni in 'Tis Pity She's a Whore'), First Stage (Bernard in 'Don't Dress for Dinner'), Chesapeake Shakespeare Company (Fabian in 'Twelfth Night') and Active Cultures Theater (Vigo Jansen in 'The Resurrectionist King'). The only thing that winds him up as much as theater is Terrapin basketball.

See you there!



PETE LEAVES A MARK ON "COVERT AFFAIRS!" Posted: Sep 14, 2011
Hi there, you fans of USA Network's "Covert Affairs." In an upcoming episode (#212), yours truly will be seen on the mall in DC furtively 'leaving a mark' on a mailbox (look closely, it may be quick!).

But don't go looking for the mailbox; it won't be there (something about it being a security issue). They brought it in just for the scene!

Cheers,
Pete

Greetings to everyone!

In addition to playing at the Times, I wanted to update you on some things I've been busy with:

- I worked on the pilot of a new comedy series called "VEEP" starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Happy to say it's been picked up by HBO and they've scheduled ten more episodes to be shot in the DC area in the fall!

- I worked on an HBO Movie of the Week called "Game Change" with Ed Harris and Julienne Moore. Not sure when it'll air since they're still shooting it. It's about the campaign of John McCain & Sarah Palin. You may be able to see me onstage with the principals!

- I recently narrated a video for the Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA). The animation is great, ckeck it out at:

Happy Spring!

They're hunting for a sleek looking office, a parking garage - (hopefully with a view of the Capitol building) and a rural auto garage. If anyone has any leads, by all means let me know.

That's about it for right now. We'll most likely begin shooting within the next 6 weeks. Stay tuned!

NEW PICTURES - MEMORIAL DAY 2008 Posted: Jun 22, 2009
Check out the new pictures of yours truly standing in for Rodney Atkins at the dress rehearsal for the 2008 Memorial Day Concert. The little girls in front wanted to know if I was Rodney. Sadly, I had to tell them no...

The pictures are compliments of my friend, Michael Colbert, of Capitol Concerts.

Thanks, Michael!


"SALT" W/ANGELINA JOLIE Posted: Jun 14, 2009
Just did two days background in the new movie, "Salt," with Angelina Jolie. At one point, I was inches away from her - she's just a little thing!

But one tough cookie - she did her own stunt, a little flip over a railing 30 feet high with her hands handcuffed and joined by a short chain, which she used to break the neck of the agent sitting on a bench who set her up(she was in a harness which prevented her from falling to the floor). All of us witnessing this broke out into applause which drew a big smile from the star. Make no mistake, she earns her money.

REVIEW OF FALLOUT 3 Posted: Jul 15, 2008
Hey there, you Gamers:

From the August 2008 edition of "GamePro" magazine:

"Dealing with the consequences of your actions is a central theme in Fallout and... is definitely karmic. Whenever you're faced with a decision, you'll be able to act good, neutral, or evil, and every choice you make can affect the endgame. With over 200 variant endings, that's one hell of a lot of important decisions. Fallout 3 is set to be one of the must-experience RPGs of the year. We'll definitely be playing."


ANOTHER NEW VIDEO GAME Posted: Jun 22, 2008
Hello, Gamers:

It's G-rated, family-friendly entertainment. Lot of fun - check it out!

Best wishes,
Pete



ATTENTION ALL GAMERS Posted: May 14, 2008
I just finished doing voiceovers for a new videogame due out in October called, "Fallout 3." It's set in the DC area and it's about "survival of the fittest" after a nuclear bomb.

It was a lot of fun to do; I had several roles and 1,868 lines!
