Get It Far Out

By: Laurie Gallardo

Your Austin Music Minute host keeps emphasizing this over and over, and will do so again: A Peterson Brothers performance is something you need to witness live. Then it’ll be easy to understand why, at a young age, they boast a long and impressive resume.

Glen, Jr. and Alex (ages 21 and 19, respectively) have played with, and opened for, the likes of Gary Clark, Jr., Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Buddy Guy, B.B. King…it goes on and on. New fans are finding out about them at music festivals throughout the country, from the Chicago Blues Festival to the Austin City Limits Music Festival. They’re artists with talents beyond their years, finding inspiration in numerous genres – soul, blues, funk and jazz. But the impact is huge because they bring something fresh to every performance.

Catch The Peterson Brothers Band at their new weekly residency Wednesday nights at The Far Out Lounge, 8504 S. Congress Ave. Doors at 7 p.m., music starts at 8 p.m. So recommended.
