The Peterson Brothers - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
The Peterson Brothers
"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." Elmore Magazine 2014

The Peterson Brothers were born and raised deep in the "Lost Pines" of Bastrop, Texas. Alex, 15, 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 and the Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys. Lisa Marie Presley, and many more. They have also played with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks, Pinetop Perkins. The Peterson Brothers have also 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".
Tomar & the FCs
Tomar & the FCs are the retro-soul band of your dreams. Their vintage style, soulful lyrics, and truthful melodies will take you on a journey through R&B past, and into a dreamy future.
Eve & the Exiles - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Eve & the Exiles
Eve Monsees & The Exiles' trashy garage, blues grooves and Texas roots come through loud and clear. Playing a combination of original tunes and some obscure covers, the band has carved out a niche in the Austin, TX scene. The 4 piece has just released their 3rd CD entitled "You Know She Did" which features guest appearances by Denny Freeman, Glen Clark, Lewis Cowdrey & Nate Basinger.

Growing up along with fellow guitarist and neighbor Gary Clark Jr, both Monsees and Clark cut their teeth playing Blues in downtown Austin. Together they played the legendary Antone's nightclub when they were both just 15 years old. After forming their own bands they each branched out. In addition to the Exiles, Monsees also plays with the Bluebonnets; an all female band with Kathy Valentine and Dominique Davalos. Along with Mike Buck, Eve also co-owns Antone's Record Shop.

Exiles co- founder and drummer Mike Buck, is also a founding member of roots rockers The LeRoi Brothers. He has toured with Doug Sahm, and played in the Fabulous Thunderbirds appearing on their first two albums. Known for both his solid drumming and extensive record collection, Buck currently hosts Blue Monday on Sun Radio.

In addition to the Exiles, Pat Collins plays bass in the LeRoi Brothers as well. An Austin resident since 1990, he has played and with Tex Edwards, The Novellas, Teddy & The Tall Tops, Walter Tragert and Charlie Burton.

Originally from France, Thierry Le Coz has made his mark on the Austin music scene. He toured with Will & The Kill at the height of their success. Thierry has also backed Linda Gail Lewis (Jerry Lee's sister) and appears on a live DVD with her entitled "Tex-French Connection."
