The Peterson Brothers

Levitt Pavilion Arlington

A modern take on old-school blues, soul, and funk

The Peterson Brothers combine youthful energy and modern influences with old-school blues, soul, and funk to a create a sound that is uniquely their own. Their live shows feature jam-band style improvisation. Led by Glenn Jr., 21, and Alex, 18, the Peterson Brothers have toured throughout the United States, and had the opportunity to play with and open for the likes of Gary Clark Jr., Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Buddy Guy, the late B.B. King, and other musical greats. They also have played festivals throughout the country, including the Chicago Blues Festival, the Minnesota State Fair, Riverbend Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, Ogden Roots and Blues, the King Biscuit Festival, the Old Settler’s Music Fest, Kerrville Folk Festival, Lancaster Blues & Roots, Allentown Blues, Brews & Barbecue, and many more. With a standing-room-only weekly residency at Austin’s famed music hall, The Continental Club, The Peterson Brothers have been referred to as “the future of Austin music” by Mark Murray of Sun Radio and “some of the most talented musicians I have seen come out of Austin” by Jamfeed.
