Peter Carucci and Becki Fleischer have been the heart of The Four26, since founding Four26 Studios on April 26 (Four26) in 2018. Having met at an event hosted by Paul Shaffer - where both of their respective bands were playing - they soon joined forces when Becki joined Peter's band, THE SHAVES. Over the years, and especially during the pandemic, they recognized a growing need for flexibility and saw their client's appreciation as they were able to deliver the exact right solution with their access to so many talented musicians. Setting up so many gigs for single players, duos and trio's in the pandemic led to the formation of The Four26 as a musical ensemble.
Now that the world is slowly stepping back to bigger shows with full bands, The Four26 is primed to hit all the right notes with an arsenal of creative cred. They take on a crazy-wide range of covers from Beethoven to the Beastie Boys, throwing in originals and jamming fresh medleys and mash-ups often created organically with audience requests. As single players, duos, trios or full band, The Four26 know how to engage an audience and keep them asking for more!
A life-long musician, Peter first made a name for himself during his college years, attracting sold-out crowds looking to hear his unique percussive-style acoustic guitar and captivating vocals. It was during this time when he honed his skills as a songwriter, creating an original sound, as a pioneering member of the 90's folk/rock scene, and opened locally for acts like Jonathan Edwards (Sunshine Go Away Today) and Dave Matthews. A natural performer, Carucci went on to co-found several bands in New York City, most notably Chasing Sunday, a top NYC and internationally successful band, Steve Liesman & The Mooncussers, THE SHAVES, and The Four26. He has co-written and produced over forty songs on five albums and has written over a hundred additional songs, many of which have been played live or featured on artist recordings. With Chasing Sunday, the intoxicating intensity and energy of Peter's vocals, guitar, and songwriting achieved chart success in Europe and hit the Top 10 Heatseeker Chart in New York City. A multi-instrumentalist, Peter has performed around the globe and shared stages and studios with musical legends like: Bob Weir, Sammy Hagar, Jeff Chimenti, Bobby Keys, Chuck Leavell, Paul Shaffer, Lew Soloff, Jay Lane, Jason Crosby, Papa Mali, D.J. Logic, Jonathan Wilson, Santana, Bernie Williams, the Heartbreakers, Jim Devito, George Murphy, Fantasia, Gala, Anna Falchi, Yannick Noah, Patrick Bruel, and many others.
Raised in Indiana, Becki found her love of music at a young age winning vocal competitions and playing guitar, piano, French horn, trumpet and any other instrument she could get her hands on. As an adult, she has been known for her clear and compelling vocals and smooth rhythm guitar. Layering in ear-grabbing harmonies and taking the lead, she has contributed to cover bands and was a founding member of the indie-rock band LAWLESS. Becki currently plays originally arranged covers with THE SHAVES and original songs and popular covers with The Four26, which she also co-founded. She is a member of the Nashville-based songwriting community, Songtown, and in July 2020, Becki released her first EP of original music, Intune, which conveys her fierce belief in the power of personal transformation. Her song "Shift" received airplay in the northern suburbs of NYC and her song "Highest Ground" was recognized with an Honorable Mention in the Folk/Acoustic category of the Indie International Songwriting Network contest in 2021. "Highest Ground" is also the theme music for her podcast, Unleash Your Soul Song.
