It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than 25 years since Candy Dulfer
rose to fame with her high-profile collaborations with Dave Stewart (the worldwide number 1 smash “Lily was here”) and of course the legendary Prince, whose tongue-in-cheek recommendation (“When I want sax, I call Candy”) in the "Partyman" video made the world sit up and notice the young, glamorous and talented sax player at his side. Their collaboration continued over the years with many studio sessions, TV show appearances, award show performances (including the Grammy Awards), and concert tours around the globe, including Candy joining Prince’s NPG band as a permanent member for his record-shattering Musicology tour & album.
Candy has been fortunate to work - both in the studio and on stage - with some of the biggest names in music, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and many others.

The Peet Project
The Peet Project
a Hungarian pop-funk-jazz band consisting of five twenty-something musicians. Their original music is a seductive and eclectic blend, reflecting influences encompassing Brian Culbertson, Candy Dulfer, George Duke, Earth Wind and Fire and the Rippingtons, among others. The group's driving force is the violinist-composer-vocalist- producer Peter "Peet" Ferencz (27). Peter gives the band its unique sound through his use of violin as a lead instrument in an equivalent role in saxophone or keyboards. His talent was recognized by contemporary jazz icons Brian Culbertson, culminating in Brian's lending production guidance to one of the standout tracks on the second album, and Dave Koz who traveled to Hungary to record a single with the Peet Project in the summer of 2016 . They play extensively in Hungary and regularly perform in the United States and other European countries such as Spain, Slovakia, Romania, Malta and Switzerland.
The Peet Project was formed in 2009 and their career kicked off when they won the grand prize of Budapest-based 90.9 Jazzy Radio's song contest later that year. The band's debut album, Pink Spirit (2010, Beagle Beat Records), received rave reviews, not only in Hungary but also internationally at JazzCorner and JazzTimes, while Smoothjazz.com's Sandy Shore described the CD as "off-the-hook, irresistible grooves and melodies ". In September 2011, the band made its international stage debut, rocking the Swiss Jazz Club Rorschach as they opened a concert season featuring such luminaries as Victor Bailey and Drew Davidsen.
