Legendary Vocalist Louis Peyrefitte Passes


We note the passing of one of the most loved vocalists of Belize's big band era, Louis Peyrefitte. After a long battle with kidney disease, Peyrefitte died on Saturday night in New Jersey. He was 68 and the father of 21 children.

In the band heyday of the 60's and 70's, Peyrefitte was the lead vocalist for The Professionals, The Harmonettes, and the Lord Rhaburn Combo, to name a few. He is best known for his definitive cover versions of "one in a million you", "cuando", and "a hundred times a day."
