The Peterson Brothers
The Peterson Brothers combine infectious energy and modern grooves with soul, funk, blues & jazz to create their own unique sound. For a decade, the 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.
The brothers' love for classic Funk, Soul, and Blues music was born when their mother and grandmother brought home a crate of assorted albums and turntable from a garage sale. The Peterson Brothers learned to play by listening to artists like The Isley Brothers, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Brothers Johnson, and B.B King; from then, they created their own stage show. Some of their first consistent gigs included regular performances at Antone’s, The Saxon Pub and other renowned venues in Austin.
The duo have since 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’ve also 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.
“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.
Minneapolis Star Tribune named them the band likely to earn the biggest fest buzz after performing at the Roots, Rock and Deep Blues Festival. The Peterson Brothers combine infectious energy and modern grooves with soul, funk, blues & jazz to a create their own unique sound.
