Pete CiottiPeter Leo Ciotti IV


I am originally from New York but have lived in Arcata for over a decade now. I have also been performing and playing shows all over the country since 2001 with the band The Nucleus, in which I am the drummer. I took over the operations at the Jambalaya in the late summer of 2009 but have been a longtime admirer and supporter of what the Jambalaya brings and contributes to the local Arcata Music Scene.

My goal is to embrace the over 35 years of musical history that has taken place in this very building and augment its roots with quality entertainment, food and drinks. Music is my passion and as the owner and operater of Big Pete's Pizzeria both in Arcata and Eureka you can say that food is also something I care deeply about. Quality comes first with me and I strive to offer organic and local products whenever I can and wherever I can. I like the idea of keeping our money local especially in these economical times. I believe in contributing to non-profit and community based endeavors as well.

The Jambalaya is all about community and the best way to share in that experience is through Music, Food and Spirits. My pledge to the community is simple. Over the next year or so you will see many beautiful changes take place here at the Jam without losing
the integrity and admiration towards the history of this place. Its all about the music and the community in which we share it. Hope to see you soon in here dancing and leaving your hang ups at the door. Peace!
