Bio

Born in the city of Paks (80 miles south of Budapest) in 1986, Attila’s love for music came from his father who introduced him to the world of musical instruments at a young age, giving Attila his first saxophone when he was just 13 years old.

While studying music, he played in different popular Hungarian bands before joining the Peet Project, a young pop-funk-jazz group in 2013. The Peet Project is one of Hungary’s hottest music exports, with Billboard charting success and an impressive track record of playing at major US jazz festivals and recording with sax legend Dave Koz.

The band is also recognized in their home country, thanks to their regular performances at the country’s main jazz festivals like the Paloznak Jazzpiknik and live TV appearances in shows like Hungary's Got Talent (2015), the Eurovision Song Contest (2017, 2018) among others.  

Besides handling saxophone duties in the band, Attila also contributes songs to the band’s repertoire, including favorites like Galaxies (off their 2020 album, Ups & Downs)  Drive Time (with a music video shot in Los Angeles) and and River Cruise (with a video filmed on a river cruise ship in Budapest).

With the Peet Project, Attila played at such high-profile jazz events as the Seabreeze Jazz Festival (USA, 2016), the Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival (2015, 2017) where they won the Best Album of 2017 and Best Song of 2020 awards, the Dave Koz Cruise (2016, 2018), the Mallorca Smooth Jazz Festival (Spain, 2016) and Sandy Shore’s Jazz Weekender hosted by Nathan East (2019, 2020).


In Hungary, Attila toured with such local acts like Gigi Radics and Rapülök, with the latter routinely filling 15,000-seat arenas.


Attila is a proud endorser of the legendary Theo Wanne Saxophone Mouthpieces and Antigua saxophones.
