The Peterson Brothers are particularly adept at a smooth, funky, groove-laden type of blues that requires a mastery of both musical timing and onstage rapport. The fact that they’re succeeding on all fronts as teenagers makes it that much more impressive. Guitarist Glenn, 17, and bassist Alex, 15, have been at it for several years now, growing beyond their beginnings in Texas to create a name for themselves across the country. They’ve even played and collaborated with the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Bootsy Collins. Point is: keep your eyes on these young men.
