Mary Lou Christianson (Peterman) was the Roseville Big Band's featured vocalist for several years, first performing with the band at the Confederate Air Force dance May 19, 1990. You might recognize Mary Lou from her appearances in television advertisements for Bodine's Keyboard Centers. If you attended the Confederate Air Force dances in 1992-1995, you may remember her former husband, keyboardist David Lee Peterman, entertaining the audience during the Roseville Big Band's breaks.

Mary Lou became known as White Dove when she sang and danced professionally in Hawaii with her family, performing in hotels, nightclubs, restaurants and military clubs as an entertainer; and also sharing the gospel as a minister on the beaches of Waikiki for more than a decade.

She returned to her home state of Minnesota in 1989 and performed with two other big bands besides the Roseville Big Band: the Inver Hills Jazz Band (which is now the River City Jazz Orchestra) and the Bend in the River Big Band.

In 1998 she gave up her home and traveled the United States in full time ministry for four years, visiting 48 of the 50 states. She also ministered in Brazil and has invitations to Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, Philippines, India and Mauritius, which she hopes to honor this next year.

Her home base is now in the Denver, Colorado area where she continues her ministry through her websites as well as her travels. Through White Dove Music Ministries, Mary Lou is currently offering seven inspirational albums on her websites. She also has an album of big band music she recorded with the Bend in the River Big Band.
