About Kenny Wayne Shepherd:
There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it’s played in service to an entire genre.
Utter the phrase “young blues rock guitarist” within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. The Louisiana born axeman and songsmith has sold millions of albums while throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens.
In a 20-year recording career that began when he was just 16, Shepherd has established himself as an immensely popular recording artist, a consistently in-demand live act and an influential force in a worldwide resurgence of interest in the blues.

About The Peterson Brothers:
The Peterson Brothers possess a modern blend of blues, soul and funk. Glenn Jr., 20 on guitar and vocals, and his brother Alex, 18, on bass and vocals, have been playing together since they were young kids. Rising stars in Austin, Texas, the Peterson Brothers have been referred to as, “The future of Austin music” by Mark Murray of Sun Radio in Austin, and “Some of the most talented musicians I have seen come out of Austin” by Jamfeed.

The Peterson Brothers have shared the stage with some of the world’s great guitarists, including Gary Clark, Jr. and the late great B.B. King. They currently hold a standing room only weekly residency at Austin’s famed music hall The Continental Club.
