The Peterson Brothers / Press

“Soulful, funky, fun – these Blues brothers are keeping the Blues alive. The duo consists of Glenn Peterson on guitar and Alex Peterson on Bass. Alex slapped the bass and Glenn performed funky solo guitar sets – small stage, big performance. As the audience sat captivated, the Peterson Brothers transitioned from their solo sets to climactic, deep sounds that left the crowd cheering for more. Did I mention these boys are 14 and 16-years-old? Though the brothers were utterly amazing, they kept their down-to-earth mentality – literally. Glenn was the first to sit at the front-edge of the stage; little brother Alex followed behind him. Photographers and videographers rushed in, and the Blues flowed from the speakers like exotic smoke traveling the room, soon to tantalize and hypnotize the diverse crowd...... ”

"BUENOS DOMINGO ! If you were not at the filming of The Bling Johnson Show last night, you missed a great show. The show was full of energy and everyone had a great time. Musical Guests, The Peterson Brothers, gave an outstanding performance of blues that made heads bob and asses wiggle. I had a great time !"....John Stevens April 29, 2012

“Glenn and Alex Peterson have only been playing guitar for three years, but you’d never know it if you saw them on stage at Antone’s, Saxon Pub or the Victory Grill, Glenn bending his six strings with emotional ferocity and Alex slapping his bass like a young Victor Wooten. The boys channel the blues with a maturity and technical prowess well beyond their years...(Check out the entire article)”

“01/25/11 @ Antone's The Peterson Brothers Opening the semiannual reunion of Muddy Waters alum Pinetop Perkins, 97, and harp cat Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, 75 this week, are the late blues Buddha’s preteen spiritual and genre descendants: Bastrop’s Peterson Brothers. “They’re like miniature Muddy Waterses,” gasped Susan Antone late last year. Bassist Alex, 11, and his brother Glenn, 13, on guitar – with equally youthful drummer Clellan Hyatt – aren’t yet Willie Dixon and Jimmy Rogers, but Gary Clark Jr. better watch his back.

“The Peterson Brothers, followed by Bobby Whitlock and CoCo Carmel, at The Saxon Pub, Austin, TX, September 12, 2010. It was at least 92 degrees outside this past Sunday in the late afternoon here in South Austin, but it was really hot inside the Saxon Pub. We went to see the Peterson Brothers play the blues, and if your eyes were closed you might have thought you were listening to one of the Kings: Albert, Freddie, or BB. In this case, it was Glenn Peterson on lead guitar and Alex Peterson on bass and fiddle, joined by Clellan Hyatt on drums. They started out with Hideaway, and covered San Jose, the T-Bone Shuffle, Sitting on Top of the World, and Frosty...... nust read the complete article..http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/the-peterson-brothers-amp?xg_source=activity”

"Since the very first time I heard Glenn and Alex Peterson play "Hideaway" when they were 9 and 11, I have dreamed of seeing them play the stage at Antone's. That's the song I always associate with young Texas blues musicians and the Petersons nail it the right way." Margaret Moser- Austin Chronicle http://www.myspace.com/glennalex
