Today’s free Summer Concert features “The Peterson Brothers” at 7 p.m. at Rover Park in White Rock.

The Peterson Brothers were born and raised deep in the “Lost Pines” of Bastrop, Texas. Alex, 16, on bass and violin and vocals; and Glenn Jr., 18 on guitar and lead vocals are two brothers, one sound. Their music combines the classic blues sounds of legends with their own unique blend of soul-infused inspiration.

In just a few short years they have had the opportunity to open for B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys, Lisa Marie Presley and many more. They also have played with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks and Pinetop Perkins. The Peterson Brothers have gained the attention of the legendary Bootsy Collins who has become one of their mentors.

The band has just completed their debut album “The Peterson Brothers” with Michael Freeman, who produced the Grammy Award Winning “Joined at the Hip” by Pinetop Perkins and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Although much of their time is spent honing in on their musical gifts, they put precedence on volunteering and ensuring that their academics are a top priority.

The Peterson Brothers are on a mission to help “Keep the Blues Alive”. Website:
