Starving Artists Program
The deal is simple:
Bands tell us in advance they'll be touring through a Pete's town, we give them a voucher for free food.
It started years ago: our marketing director Virgil Dickerson went on tour with a band, and saw firsthand just how hard it is to find a decent meal on the road. He visited a restaurant in Albuquerque called Fred's Breads, which served touring musicians for half off. Inspired, he approached our president Pete Turner, asking to start a band discount program. Pete went one step further and offered to feed touring bands for free.
Bands give us the heads up, and we give them the hookup. Customers benefit, too; From impromptu acoustic sets to Eat and Greets, customers can get up close and personal with their favorite bands. All touring bands coming through an Illegal Pete’s town are eligible, and merely need to reach out to us in advance to get their Starving Artists voucher. The restaurant will then set up each member with a free entrée and drink.
So how does your touring band get a free food voucher ?
You have to have a voucher to get that free grub. We feed a lot of bands, so fill out the form below at least a WEEK before you want your food, and the Illegal Pete's Burrito Fairy will reach out with her magic wand.
