High Five Events presents the Peterson Brothers as the main act for the Austin Marathon finish line festival. The Peterson Brothers will play two 45-minute, energetic sets for thousands of finishers and spectators on Feb. 18, 2018.
“We’re honored to be part of this great day in the city of Austin and look forward to what is always an inspiring event with incredible energy,” said Glenn Peterson Jr.
The Peterson Brothers, one of music’s most talented up-and-coming acts, have opened for artists like Austinite Gary Clark Jr., Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Buddy Guy, and the late B.B. King. The Peterson Brothers are led by Glenn Jr. and Alex and have a current residency at Austin’s famed music hall, The Continental Club. They have also performed at major music festivals like Austin City Limits, Chicago Blues Festival, and Old Settler’s Music Fest. Their two 45-minute sets will consist of original songs and well-known covers and take place from 9:00 – 9:45 and 10:00 – 10:45 a.m.
“The buzz the Peterson Brothers have generated within the Austin music scene is undeniable,” said Stacy Keese, co-owner of High Five Events. “We’re thrilled to have them headline the Austin Marathon finish line festival and know that their endless energy will keep the party going for our participants.”
