True to their name, (euphemism aside) a guy named Peter and twin brothers Roger and Andy- bred from
the land of Prince, and the Replacements, just-add-whiskey, and it seemed there was only one thing to
do.. Peter and the Twins keep touring around the country because they don’t need to stop.
.
The bands’ maiden years have been coupled with strings of accomplishments; most notably: two albums
with worldwide distribution, radio and television appearances at home and abroad, three ambitious
tours, an exciting sponsorship from the Bierstick Company, a critically acclaimed Tour Blog, and
even negotiations with N.S. Bienstock which nearly left the DIY touring band with their own nationally
syndicated reality television show.
.
The inspiration for continuing came from an unexpected place. Peter says,
.
The first tour was an eye opener for me. The shows were good, but something really crazy was happening
afterwards. We really love to have a great time; but an unexpected sentiment kept being expressed to us-
city after city, about how,[what was typical for us]- our nightly blurried escapades, were providing other
people- even the most hardened guys, or bar owners, with some of the most fun they’d ever had in their
lives. And I think it has everything to do with the Twins. They really get people out of their shell to a place
where we all should be. To me that is the magic of Peter and the Twins
.
As each individual band holds itself together by a set of beliefs, Peter and the Twins decided to
standardize theirs:
.
1. Rock and Roll Every Night- If a show falls through we will call every bar in your town until
somebody lets us play Journey covers and sell T-shirts.

2. Tip your bartenders

3. Diversify – We learn hundreds of cover songs so that when we need to fill in a date with a cover
show we’re prepared for whatever people want to hear.

4. Get people dancing – dancing is fun.

5. Have a Great Time – why else would you do this?
