Fishman Artist // The Peterson Brothers BandThe Peterson Brothers were born and raised deep in the “Lost Pines” of Bastrop, Texas. Alex, 13, on bass and violin and vocals; and Glenn Jr., 15, guitar and lead vocals are two brothers, two hearts and one sound. Their music combines the classic blues sounds of legends with their own unique blend of soul-infused inspiration.
In just a few short years they have had the opportunity to open for B.B. King; and play with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks, and Pinetop Perkins. Voted as one of the top 10 bands in the Austin Music Awards in 2010-2011 in the blues, soul and funk category; the boys gained the attention of the legendary Bootsy Collins who has become their mentor.
The band is currently in the studio working on their debut album with Michael Freeman, who produced the Grammy Award nominated “Joined at the Hip” by Pinetop Perkins and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Although much of their time is spent honing in on their musical gifts, they put precedence on volunteering and ensuring that their academics are a top priority. The Peterson Brothers are on a mission to help “Keep the Blues Alive”.
The Peterson Brothers Band are keeping the Blues alive, thanks to inspiration from the legends of the past and present. Mentors including Pinetop Perkins, Buddy Guy, Bootsy Collins, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Fernando Jones, and many others have supported the band through their experiences and their gifts. They pay homage to their heroes by showcasing their favorite songs, most written long before they were born. They honor their home with a familiar Texas sound, drawn from many local favorites such as W.C. Clark, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Gary Clark, Jr. Legendary venues, including Antone's, Gruene Hall and Saxon Pub have welcomed the Peterson Brothers Band many times.
