Texas Athletics Welcomes the Peterson Brothers for Special Halftime Performance – University of Texas

Austin’s own blues and funk duo, The Peterson Brothers, will join the Longhorn Pep Band for a special halftime performance at the Texas Longhorns Men’s Basketball game vs. Baylor, presented by St. David’s HealthCare, on Monday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets to the game start at $10 and may be purchased online at TexasSports.com/tickets or by calling 512-471-3333.

The Peterson Brothers possess a modern blend of blues, soul and funk. Glenn Jr., 21 on guitar and vocals and his brother Alex, 18, on bass and vocals, have been playing together since they were young kids. They have played with and opened for the likes of Gary Clark Jr., the late B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Los Lonely Boys, North Mississippi Allstars, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Willie Nelson and they currently hold a standing room only weekly residency at Austin’s famed music hall, The Continental Club.

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.

In addition to their performance at the Frank Erwin Center on Feb. 12, The Peterson Brothers will make another visit to the 40 acres at the Cactus Café, on Jan. 18.
