The Peterson Brothers
For a decade, these Texas natives have been building a fan base across America, playing both classic funk and soul, and their original music that includes jam-band style improvisation by Glenn Jr. on vocals and guitar, and Alex on bass, vocals, and violin.
Influenced by artists such as The Isley Brothers, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Brothers Johnson, and B.B King, the Peterson Brothers created their own stage show and have been performing gigs at Antone’s, The Saxon Pub and other renowned venues in Austin. Including a standing room only weekly residency at Austin’s famed music hall, The Continental Club, for the last 7 years.
It’s important to point out the ages of these young cats, as they’ve become one of the most popular festival fixtures in the US, in just 10 years, writes American Blues Scene. And Minneapolis Star Tribune named them the band likely to earn the biggest fest buzz performing at the Roots, Rock and Deep Blues Festival.
The duo has traveled the U.S. performing in front of crowds at Chicago Blues Festival, Minnesota State Fair, Texas State Fair, Riverbend Festival, Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and many others. They have opened for legendary artists including Gary Clark Jr., Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jesse Johnson (The Time), Willie Nelson, B.B. King, New Power Generation (Prince’s longtime band), Buddy Guy and more.
In November of 2019, they released a single from their upcoming EP, and Buddy Magazine (Texas’ original music monthly) wrote: “Give Me Your Love” delivers the sound, feel, warmth, immediacy and fun of their stage show.”
