Pete Nalda (1960 – 2023)


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our fellow Radio Gunner, Pete Nalda on January 15, 2023. Family members and musicians are posting photos and memories to his memorial website. It is hard to put into words the loss of a fellow musician that you’ve grown to love. Pete was a musician, composer, artist, writer, philosopher, and Renaissance man of Austin. But most of all he was our friend. Wheels up and safe flight Pete.

Pete played the accordion and keyboards and brought an eclectic musical background with roots in Basque, Cajun and Hispanic mixed with Punk and New Wave influences. He has performed in vaudeville and alternative pop, jazz and theater ensembles. He is featured on a number of independently released albums.
